We believe that each child is unique, capable and curious, with inbuilt strengths and tremendous potential to be a master of their own learning. With over 25 years experience in operating children’s programs in Whittlesea, the Y is a community profit for purpose organisation aiming to empower young people. We work together to create an environment where children, educators, families and the community have ownership and a sense of belonging.​​


At the Y learning opportunities are endless! We offer a range of educational and play based programs guided by the National Quality Framework. Our highly experienced educators work to develop indoor and outdoor learning experiences to enhance each child’s strengths, interests and abilities. We provide children with opportunities to discover, learn and investigate through times of uninterrupted play using natural and open ended materials.


The Y’s of Australia are committed to providing opportunities for all children and young people to grow in body mind and spirit and be protected from harm. We recognise that all children and young people have the right to develop and reach their potential in environments that are caring, nurturing and safe. As an accredited Child Safe Organisation we have an unwavering focus and commitment to safeguarding children first and foremost in everything we do.
