Child Care Centres

City of Darwin sponsors seven Child Care Centres in the provision and maintenance of the buildings. Council also assists the Child Care Centres in obtaining grants from government agencies and project manages capital works when applicable.

The Child Care Centres are overseen and run by volunteer community based management committees. Providing care and education for children from babies to school age, the centres vary in scope of service provision, operating hours and fees and placements on offer.
