Our History

John Street was formed in 1976 from the generous donations of E M Dauber. Formerly known as the Fitzroy Community Childcare Co-operative, a name change was initiated in 1997 in order to establish a firmer identity within the surrounding Fitzroy community.

In 1998, we merged with another well-known and well-established Fitzroy centre, Central Fitzroy Childcare Co-operative, in the interests of preserving community-based childcare.
