Who we are

 

EACH Child is a service of EACH, providing high-quality child care and education services from our centre in Ringwood East since 1979.

The 122 place newly redeveloped not for profit childcare centre provides early learning and a kindergarten program that are inclusive of all children. Families at the centre are supported by a team of community health professionals that offer a range of integrated family services. At EACH Child we take a family centred, child-focused approach to early childhood care and education.

At EACH, our vision is for a healthy and inclusive community.

Founded on the vision that everyone is entitled to good health, we’re one of the nation’s leading health and community services providers, offering a broad range of services for over 40 years. Our services include Community Health, NDIS, Counselling, Support for Older Adults and Family Services. We embrace diversity in all its forms and respect everyone's strength and contributions irrespective of gender, ethnicity, culture, religious beliefs, sexual orientation and political views.

Our service provides nappies, nutritious cooked meals (prepared on site) and above child/staff ratios.
