About Bubup Womindjeka Family and Children’s Centre
Bubup Womindjeka Family and Children’s Centre is a community run, not-for-profit organisation providing integrated early learning and care services to the community. Our programs include long day care (ages 6 weeks to 5 years old), 3 and 4 year old sessional kindergarten, community playgroups and Maternal Health Nurses and Parenting Support Programs via City of Port Phillip Council.
Bubup Womindjeka means ‘Welcome Children’ in the language of the Boon Wurrung People of the Yalukut Weelam, the traditional custodians of the land.
Bubup Womindjeka Family and Children’s Centre is committed to promoting a safe, equitable environment that supports a sense of belonging and respect. We advocate for the rights and participation of each child, throughout our organisation we embed the Child Safe Standards.
Our Vision, Values and Strategic Plan
The Board is responsible for providing leadership and strategy to the organisation ensuring the current and future direction is consistent with the organisation’s aims and the interests and needs of the services stakeholders. The Board is made up of family and community members who bring key skills, expertise, and guidance in the management of the service. The Board members are part of individual sub-committees based on their particular area of expertise and interest, including; Leadership Liaison, Consultative Committee, Integration, Finance Committee, People and Culture Committee, Risk Committee, Governance and Appointments Committee.
We enjoy the use of our purpose built facility which is provided by City of Port Phillip Council.
Bubup Womindjeka Family and Children’s Centre respectfully acknowledges the Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of this land upon which our service is located. In paying respect to all Aboriginal community Elders, past and present, who have resided in the area and have been an integral part of its history, we acknowledge their proud and resilient cultures; ongoing connections to land, sea and sky.
