Little Beacons at the Berwick campus

I am delighted to announce that plans are well underway to open a Little Beacons Learning Centre at the Berwick Campus in 2019.

While this will be welcome news for parents seeking early learning programs, childcare and vacation care, this centre will also serve as a community hub in the City of Casey. It will offer the total package of children’s services, including maternal and child health, speech and occupational therapy, family support, playgroups and early intervention programs.

We are fortunate to have secured a $1.6m State Government grant to help fund this $6m project. Little Beacons will be located on the south-western corner of the Berwick Campus off Kangan Drive.

At this stage we are awaiting approval of the planning permit, before proceeding to the tender process and construction. We will announce more details as the year progresses.

This centre will complement our award-winning Little Beacons program already operating successfully from our Pakenham Campus.
