Children’s Centres for Early Childhood Development and Parenting are a South Australian Government initiative that support children’s development, health, learning and wellbeing. The initiative promotes integrated early childhood programs and family services in which professional agencies, service providers, families and the local community work together to provide high quality programs for children and family support services.

Forbes Children’s Centre was opened on 1st December 2010 and offers programs and services for children and families.

Our Waiting List is currently open in all rooms. Please contact the Centre for an expression of interest form. As always, we are also taking expressions of interest for Preschool in 2019 and beyond.

For more information on programs offered at the Centre in our community spaces, open to all families and children, please check the Centre program on the 'What's Happening?' page.
