Harbour Children’s Centre turns one

The Harbour Family and Children’s Centre, located in Victoria Harbour, celebrated its first birthday on February 25 with a “twilight party”.

Manager Lyn Cramp said the celebrations kicked off with formal proceedings including speeches, reflections on the past year and a tree planting ceremony, before the night moved on to become less formal.

Children and their families, along with the project partners, early childhood colleagues, government members and staff then gathered at the centre and feasted on a sausage sizzle and ice-cream cake to celebrate.

Ms Cramp said the children, as well as adults, were entertained and enthralled by Sparkle the Fairy who sang songs and performed magic.

The centre, which is run under a partnership between Gowrie Victoria, the City of Melbourne, VicUrban and Lend Lease, opened its doors a year ago to 41 children and now caters to 210 children.

“We are proud to be celebrating the first birthday with our 210 children and their families and the people who worked together on the project,” CEO Gilda Howard said.

The facility, which has received over 1000 visitors in the last 12 months, is the only centre in Docklands to house both a maternal child and health service and an early childhood education centre.

“It is a great opportunity to acknowledge what has been achieved for the children and families in Docklands,” Ms Howard said.
