Preparing kids for life in a multicultural world

Commitment to diversity and community

Our dedicated caregivers take their responsibility for physical, emotional, social and intellectual growth and development of young children attending the centre seriously.  We are committed to providing a service that prepares all children for their future life in an ever-changing, multicultural world and increasingly diverse society. Through its Greek Bilingual and multicultural programs, Alpha Early Learning Centre endeavours to instil a sense of pride in the children’s heritage and an understanding and acceptance of other cultures and diversity.


Our History

Alpha Early Learning Centre commenced operation on February 18th 1977, born out of the need to service the large greek working population and the demand for a child care centre in the Richmond area. The centre provided extended hours of care as well as a Greek bilingual program to the community.


Alpha ELC respectfully acknowledges and celebrates the Traditional Owners of the lands throughout Victoria and pays its respects to their Elders, children and young people of past, current and future generations.


Working in the childcare environment has enabled me to learn about a different discipline beyond typical office duties. At Alpha, I've received encouragement and opportunities for training and development. It's just a great atmosphere to work in.
