Janice Crosio Early Learning Centre at Bossley Park, managed by Fairfield City Council, has been recognised with a 2020 Fairfield City Local Business Award.


The centre won the Early Childhood Centre category of the 2020 awards, the gala event for which was held on Monday evening, one of five Council-run early learning and care services and four private centres that were finalists in the Early Childhood Centre category at this year’s awards.


Having recently been given an Exceeding rating during the assessment and rating process, the win tops off “a very successful year” for the centre.


Four of Council’s other centres – Wakeley Early Learning Centre, Bossley Park Preschool, St Johns Park Early Learning Centre and Malborough Street Preschool – were also finalists.


Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said he was “incredibly proud” of the Janice Crosio Early Learning Centre and all of Council’s early learning and care services.


“Our early learning staff always do an amazing job, especially with the added challenges of COVID-19,” he said, congratulating the team on their “well-deserved” award.
