Annie Dennis Children’s Centre

Educating and caring for children in the Northcote area and surrounding suburbs since 1929. Annie Dennis maintains its rating of ‘exceeding’ the National Quality Standards. This means that we have gone above and beyond what is required for us to meet our obligations under the framework. For more information please see the ACECQA website.  Here children thrive and are nurtured to reach their full potential as individuals and as curious lifelong learners.

Statement of commitment to Child Safety

We are committed to child safety. We want children to be safe, welcomed, happy and empowered and have zero tolerance of child abuse, harm and racism. We understand our legal and moral obligations to treat all concerns seriously and to report allegations and concerns about a child/ren’s safety and wellbeing to authorities.

We are committed to the cultural safety of all children including Aboriginal children, children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and to providing a safe environment for children with a disability.

Annie Dennis Children’s Centre acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and traditional custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work.
