The FedUni Children's Centre at SMB is a state of the art facility located between Lydiard and Armstrong Streets. It provides high quality education and care in a flexible, stimulating and inviting environment. The Centre can accommodate up to 80 children and it also incorporates teaching space for Early Childhood Education students in VET and higher education programs. The Centre features five children's rooms as well as a kindergarten program.
Communal indoor/outdoor play areas provide interaction between various rooms, siblings and educators, making transitions between rooms easier.
The Hon Kate Ellis MP, Minister for Early Childhood and Child Care, opened the $2.55 million Children's Centre for Early Childhood Education at the SMB Campus on 4 April 2012. The new centre contributes greatly to the education and childcare needs of many families throughout Ballarat.
