Meet Galada Community Centre
If your family is living in Aurora and looking for a place to meet new neighbours and interact with your community, you should definitely be visiting Galada Community Centre. The centre offers a range of workshops, services and activities to encourage residents to be more involved and find their place within the great community.
There are plenty of activities for youths and younger kids run throughout the week. From LEGO building to story time to music classes and playgroups, there are multiple ways your children can meet other kids while still staying active (and you get to socialise too). A small fee applies for most of these activities.
For mums of new little ones up to kids aged 5, there is a Maternal Child Health Centre at Galada. Make sure you pop in to get free regular checks for your baby to find out when they should be hitting their next development milestones or for advice on cradle cap and all things infant and early childhood related. The Maternal Child Health Centre at Galada is open for breastfeeding consultations on Mondays from 9am to 11am and open consultations for more general questions on Wednesdays from 9.30am to 11.30am. Otherwise you can book an appointment time by calling 9404 8888.
There is also a free Stay N Play playgroup for parents and kids that is run by other volunteer parents. Just show up to these as you wish on Fridays from 9.30am to 11am.
Over 230 children attend the three and four-year-old Galada Kindergarten program at the centre each week. Since it was built in 2014, the kindergarten has been run by YMCA Whittlesea. For more information call 8401 0840 or email [email protected].
But the offerings at Galada are not just limited to kids’ activities. Adults can participate too – there are Punjabi dance groups, yoga and even a free mobile library bus that visits weekly on Monday mornings.
