Like a number of children’s services within the Eltham area, Eltham Woods Childcare has previously been identified by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development as being at risk on Code Red Fire Danger. On days which are declared Code Red (Catastrophic) the Centre will be closed and no care is provided. More information is available at the Department’s website. The committee of management also closes the centre on days classified as extreme fire danger days in our central fire district. Families are given as much notice as possible regarding these closures.
