Fun Run Walk, Sun 20th Nov

Monday, January 09, 2017


We had a great time at our inaugural Fun Run Walk in 2015, so much so that we strapped on our trainers and did it all over again in 2016!

Like our inaugural year, the event was held at the very picturesque Princes Park. Thankfully the weather was kind to us on the day and participants enjoyed a sunny, spring morning.

Congratulations to our event winners:

6.4km Run: Hicham Hehjed (Tinning St family)

3.2km Run: Bevan Holder (Allison Jackson’s son)

3.2km Walk: Tom Hirst (sibling of Tinning St family)

Fresh coffee, a sausage sizzle, kid’s activities and goodie bags kindly supplied by Bendigo Bank kept both adults and the knee-high brigade happy, and the ever-popular Sporty Paul was on hand to put the kids through their paces.

Many thanks to Cooper (Ali Teece’s son) for stepping in to do the warm up, those who volunteered their services manning stalls, the barbie etc. on the day, and to the many families, friends of families and staff who organised and/or donated prizes for our raffle and silent auction. You helped us raise just over $4,000 – a magnificent effort!!

And finally, a huge thanks to Adrienne Smith and Lyndal Burke (Dunstan parent) for their efforts organising and running the event on the day. We could not have done it without you!

Three centres, one community




Our Happy Families

One morning, our two-year-old said she was going to her ‘other house’. That really says it all: Dunstan is her home away from home, a fun place to play and learn with staff who make her feel secure and loved. We couldn't be happier.
Camille, Dunstan Reserve

Our children really enjoy the time they spend at MCCCC. I have watched them grow in confidence and make positive friendships. MCCCC offers a relaxed, educational and nurturing environment. I particularly like the increasing focus on sustainability.
Donna, Dunstan Reserve

The staff are all lovely and caring, and I feel that they genuinely enjoy being around little people and encouraging them to grow and learn. I particularly like the way the children can move throughout the different spaces at Mitchell Street, playing with educators and kids of different ages as they please.
Elena, Mitchell Street

The variety of activities for the children coupled with the community garden right next to the centre make it a great setting for developing minds. Educators take a real interest in the children and their families—with some going the extra mile to help parents, which is greatly appreciated after a long day at work.
Faranaz, Dunstan Reserve

We chose Mitchell Street because of the friendly staff and atmosphere and especially the fact that the kids are not segregated by age. As it is, we have observed her language, motor skills, empathy and independence grow by leaps and bounds, far beyond our expectations.
Katy, Mitchell Street

We are so appreciative of the wonderful care of our boys by the educators at Mitchell Street. The children enjoy a diverse range of engaging activities and it’s clear that the educators are enthusiastic and take a great amount of pride in supporting the children to participate and learn.
Mel and Ian, Mitchell Street

We've always loved how Tinning Street feels more like a home than a child care centre. Our eldest went to school very happily after the great early learning foundation he received at the centre and our youngest is on track for the same! The carers are wonderful and attentive. We don't know what we’d do without them!
Michelle, Tinning Street

Both of my daughters have attended Mitchell Street and loved it there. When my second daughter started, the family grouping allowed my older daughter to be with her as she was adjusting to the new space. It was good peace of mind to know that they had each other during the day whilst I was working.
Nadia, Mitchell Street

We had complete confidence in sending our son to Mitchell Street from the moment we entered the building. He is a respected and loved member of the Mitchell Street family and receives personalised care from a very familiar group of professional carers. We will not hesitate in enrolling our next child and recommend Mitchell Street to our friends.
Rebecca, Mitchell Street

As a new mum of ethnic background, child care was culturally considered a last resort. I feel very grateful for the path that life pushed me towards. From the educators to kitchen staff, management to kinder teachers, we have been blessed with amazing people. There was nothing I asked for that couldn’t be done.
Rose, Tinning Street

The kinder program is frequently the starting point for fascinating discussions at home with my four-year-old son. He is challenged to think about the world in new ways and is excited to share his learning with us. I am so grateful he has a nurturing and supportive environment to develop his social skills and build confidence.
Sarah, Tinning Street
