New ECEC service for Ballan

The Yaluk Burron Early Learning centre will soon open its doors to support the community of Ballan in Victoria.


Operated by the Ballarat and District Aboriginal Co-operative Ltd, the service is located on the corner of Stead and Steiglitz Streets and will provide 100 additional places for the town in a centre-based long day centre setting.


The Federal Government is investing $600,000 into the new service through the Community Child Care Fund (CCCF) limited supply grants program.


Hawke MP Sam Rae visited the new centre and said the new service for Ballan would help take pressure off local families.


“I’ve seen first-hand the challenges faced by families when there aren’t enough early education spots for local kids,” he said.


“This means more parents can get back to work when they want to, and will give our little ones the opportunities they deserve.”
