Welcome to Meruka
Meruka Child Care Co-operative is a small community based childcare centre, run by a Parent Committee of Management and supported by the Nillumbik Shire Council. It is located at the top of the hill in Meruka Park in Eltham.
The spirit of a co-operative
A co-operative is made up of families with common childcare needs and goals. Through the service provided within the centre and mutual parent support and co-operation these goals can be achieved. Parents are co-owners, and therefore they have a real say in what happens in the centre.
In becoming a member of the co-operative, the centre families become part of a caring community. They are committing their own interests, energy and resources to the co-operative on the understanding that the group is also undertaking to help and support them.
This centre was established in April 1994 with the assistance of Nillumbik Shire Council members and dedicated parents in the community.
