Big Shout-Out to Some Special Sponsors

As a community-run child care centre, Wimble Street parents, families and friends spend a lot of time planning fundraising community events such as fetes, trivia nights, BBQs, silent auctions, movie nights and much more. It’s part of being involved in Wimble and not only do these events provide funds to keep the centre running smoothly but they also add to wider Wimble and Parkville community. Throughout 2015 we’ve had some wonderful support from dozens of organisations and businesses who have donated gifts, funds, vouchers and more.

From the kids, carers, families at Wimble and the wider community we thank-you for your support and encourage our community to support you back.

Join the Wonderful Wimble Community

Being a community owned co-op childcare, Wimble Street has a truly unique family feel. As new Chair Kristy O’Donnell wrote in early June 2014:

“In our search for child care I visited many centres but to me, none of them came even close to the feel of Wimble St. I now know that comes from having some of the most dedicated staff in child care, and a close-knit group of parents who genuinely care about the place.

The parent-run co-operative is a dying art in an inner-city location like ours. More frequently, child care is being outsourced and corporatised, and with it, the sense of affiliation is diminished. I want Wimble to remain the extraordinary place that it is. In being involved in it’s running, I hope I can give something back to a place that has given our family so much.”
