Bridge Road Children’s and Community Centre


The Bridge Road Children’s and Community Centre in Melton is an ideal space for the Atherstone community to gather and interact. It is a space specifically designed to encourage neighbours and friends in Atherstone and its surrounds to come and spend time together in a safe and friendly environment. 

Located right next to the Regional Play Space and the Sports Precinct, the centre has a gorgeous landscaped playground and is open to all members of the public. 

For families with young kids there is a three room, council run kindergarten for three and four year old's and a maternal child health service where you can meet other parents while taking your children for their check ups. There are also playgroups and new mothers’ groups.


If you need a bit of a break from the kids, as well as women’s group fitness and yoga classes there is also an Occasional Care service that runs from 9am to 12pm on Mondays provided by Melton Council. School holiday vacation care programs also run at the centre with activities for children aged 5 to 12.

Seniors aren’t left out either. There are plenty of group activities for older members of the community including tai chi. Can’t find something you like? They are also open to taking on new suggestions. Whatever your age or interest, all the activities at Bridge Road Children’s and Community Centre are purposefully low cost to encourage everyone to join in. 

And did you know that the facilities at Bridge Road Children’s and Community Centre are also available for hire? This is the perfect space to hold your next birthday party, community function or even work meeting.
