Welcome to the Eltham Childcare Co-operative (ECCC)
As you visit this website, we invite you to explore what we have to offer and consider becoming part of our co-operative community.
In 2012, the United Nations celebrated the International Year of Cooperatives. At ECCC, we are proud to embody both the definition & values of Cooperatives as described by the United Nations.
"Co-operatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others."
We are a not-for-profit organization, registered as a charity and governed by parents for the benefit of the local community.
The Centre maintains a rustic feel and is in a beautiful location, close to the town of Eltham and the train station.
