Aboriginal Children and Family Centres
Victoria has established two Aboriginal Children and Family Centres, one in the City of Whittlesea and one in Bairnsdale, East Gippsland Shire.
The centres provide a dynamic mix of early childhood and family support services, including long day care, kindergarten for three and four-year-old Aboriginal children, visiting professionals such as maternal and child health nurses, counsellors, midwives and other programs including In Home Support, Koori Early Childhood Field Officers and Early Childhood Intervention Services. The Bairnsdale centre is still in development phase, whilst Bupup Wilam was opened in June 2012.
