About Us

Clifton Co-op began providing childcare in 1977 and is registered under the Children’s Services Regulation 1988. Yarra City Council holds the title to the house and land and is responsible for maintenance of the property. Daily running costs are covered almost entirely from fees, with some small grants. Fundraising is undertaken for special projects. 

The Co-op is deliberately small, set in an ordinary house that has been modified to meet the needs of children. As a result, Clifton Co-op is able to provide a warm, homey atmosphere that is greatly appreciated by both children and parents. Because of its small size, families can get to know each other over time and staff can get to know parents as well as children.
