About Us

Kew and North Balwyn Playcentre is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that provides quality occasional care for children 6 weeks to 5 years. 


We provide five hours of care each day during which time parents can go about their working day, go shopping, arrange appointments or have a coffee, all child free.  


The children play and learn in a multi-age family style environment with the care and encouragement of highly skilled early childhood staff.


We are a community based organisation, supporting local families for over 30 years.

The centre is open during school term times from 9am to 2pm, Monday to Friday.


We are located at

21 Strathalybyn Street, East Kew, 3102


We look forward to spending time with your child!
