Hobsons Bay City Council consulted with the community on future options and recommendations relating to early years services (0-5 years) and facilities in Altona. A feasibility study identified a number of benefits of bringing together a number of nearby kindergartens and the Altona Maternal and Child Health Centre into a one-stop-shop facility. View the feasibility study in the council minutes (study starts on page 16 of the document).


Community and stakeholder consultation took place from 24 November 2015 to 11 February 2016.

  • providing feedback on early years services and facilities in Altona by completing a short online form.
