Victoria University operates Children's Centres at Footscray Nicholson Campus and Werribee Campus. Our waiting lists are quite long, with the highest demand for places being for children under three years. Unfortunately we're not able to predict when care may be available for your child.


The waiting list for Footscray Nicholson Children’s Centre is currently only accepting applications from students and staff of Victoria University.

Footscray Park Children’s Centre will not be offering childcare or kindergarten from 2020 due to the announcement of the new Footscray Hospital site.

No change to Werribee waiting list applications.


A Children's Centre Coordinator will contact you by phone or by mail to offer you a child care place if one becomes available.

Please note that you will not be put on the waiting list without payment of a $10 application fee. You can make a payment using our secure online payment system. Please include the receipt number in the notes below.

For more information, please contact the relevant Centre Coordinator:
