Welcome to Nurture One Napier Street Children’s Centre.
Our centre is located close to the CBD and boasts beautifully presented rooms as well as supplying all meals and nappies. We are open from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm and provide care and education for ages 6 weeks to 6 years.
Our rooms and outdoor playscapes focus on nature and are filled with natural elements for the children to explore.
We aim to provide the children with an educational experience that will give them a solid grounding for their primary school education and their further life.
Our centre is a warm and welcoming place that maintains a family feel. We make a huge effort with the children and families that come through the door. We ensure that we know each child’s name so we can acknowledge them when they come in, as well as knowing all of the parent’s names so that all families feel comfortable coming into the centre each day.
We look forward to welcoming you into the Napier Street Family.
Our Kindergarten program is supported by the Victorian Government.
Our childcare centre proudly offers a kindergarten/preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more your child will become school ready.
Hi my name is Jessica Connally. I have worked in child care for over 12 years and have a Diploma In Children’s Services. I have been at Napier Street Children’s Centre for over 10 years. I have worked my way through the ranks, from a Lead Educators to Assistant Centre Manager to now the Centre Manager.
Two of my passions are cooking and working with children. I first completed a chef apprenticeship, working in different restaurants throughout Bendigo. I still had a passion to work with children and enrolled to do my Diploma. I have been able to incorporate my two passions; there is a lot of learning involved when you bring the kitchen into the room.
We have built an amazing team here at Napier Street. We believe that it is important to nurture the children’s learning and find a way that best suits each child. We all learn in different ways, it is important to find what works for your child. We have created a little family here.
I enjoy building trusting relationships with the educators, families and the children. I think it is important for the child and family to feel safe and secure. You are entrusting us with your most special possession. We strive for consistency within the rooms and centre. Each Educator has their own passions and skills that they bring to the team. We nurture not only their skill but those of the children and families.
My hobbies out of work are baking and cake decorating. I have lots of nieces and nephews, if I’m not in the kitchen you will find me with them.

Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centre:
“I’m so glad I chose Napier Street Children’s Centre to be the daycare for my Daughter. the staff are wonderful and have always made me feel like my daughter is the only child in their care. Front of house staff have been AMAZING and have helped me out a number of times, always with a smile! I am able to drop my daughter off in the morning, even if she is a little sad, and I can leave confidently knowing my bubba is in the best of care.”
