Warragul Early Learning Centre Project


A new Early Learning Centre for our growing community. 

Update - July 2020


The Warragul Primary Early Learning Centre opened its doors on Tuesday 14 July 2020, on the first day of term three.

Co-located at Warragul Primary School, the new $3.2 million dollar centre has been one of this Council’s key infrastructure projects.

The new centre has capacity to provide 132 new and much needed three and four-year-old kinder placements to service the growing community.

The new centre features:

  • Two multi-use activity rooms for kinder programs.
  • Two consultation rooms for dedicated allied health, maternal and child health services such as immunisations.
  • Comfortable lounge area for those waiting for appointments.
  • Staff office space, meeting room and lunch room.
  • Additional car parking spaces.
  • Accessible ramps for easy entry/exit.
  • Fresh landscaping and new signage.

This centre has been funded in partnership with Federal and State Governments and Baw Baw Shire Council.
