Welcome to Surrey Downs Community Children’s Centre

We are happy to introduce you to our community based child care centre which is located on the beautiful tree studded Illyarrie Reserve in Surrey Downs. The reserve compliments our natural play spaces where children can explore, discover, experiment, and play. Our centre was opened in 1989 and operates as a community early education and care service which means we are a self-managed, community based organisation.

Experienced educators provide quality early childhood education and care for children from birth to school age for the families in our local community. Our strong community spirit builds meaningful partnerships with both families and our broader community. As we have a strong focus on natural play, sustainability and recycling we are helping the next generations to appreciate the world around them.

We share the honour of nurturing and educating the future generations in a happy and secure environment where every child feels safe both physically and emotionally.

We offer excellent staff consistency along with a welcoming atmosphere. With a capacity for just fifty children our child care centre is small enough to ensure your child receives individual, respectful, personal attention to help them reach their full potential.

We are members of the Community Children’s Centres SA association who offer support to all Community Children’s Centres in South Australia.

The Parent Management Committee is what is known as the governing body of the organisation and they have overall legal, financial and managerial responsibility for the centre. Current parent volunteers form this committee. Our Annual General Meeting is held in September each year.

We are incorporated under the Associations Act 1985, thus its activities are bound by a constitution.

Responsibility for the day-to-day management, provision of services, and administration is delegated by the Committee to the Centre Director.
