The City undertakes an Expression of Interest (EOI) process to select an operator for a newly built or renovated child care centre or an EarlyON Child and Family Centre. We look for not-for-profit organizations who are committed to providing accessible, equitable, high quality services that welcome all families and are responsive to local community needs.
There are currently no active EOIs. Information regarding the Child Care Centre EOI process can be found on the Expression of Interest to Operate a Child Care page.
