The Annie Dennis Children's Centre is a council-owned, community-run childcare centre and kindergarten. Established in 1929 and located on Rucker's Hill, in Northcote, the Centre provides a caring, safe and stimulating environment that nurtures every aspect of the child. At Annie Dennis the children are respected as individuals and independent thinkers, staff are role models and advocates both for the young children and their profession, and parents and families are an integral part of the learning community. We are very proud of all that Annie Dennis Children's Centre achieves and stands for, and invite you to take the time to look around this site and learn more.
