Coburg Children’s Centre

Project overviewCoburg Children's Centre artist's impression

The site is located at 13 Urquhart Street, Coburg. It is part of Pentridge Village located in what was previously known as G Division.

Council purchased this building in 2013 and will adapt and reuse parts of the original building to house Coburg Childrens Centre who will vacate their present building on Bell Street.  

The centre will provide up to 120 places for children from babies to preschool age. 

The building will have 5 main rooms for children’s activities as well as spaces for staff and a large central children’s yard.

Council's Maternal and Child Health service, currently located in Elm Grove, Coburg, will also relocate to the new centre.
