Tiny Town Child Care Centre and Kindergarten was established in 1974 by The Ladies’ Fellowship Group of Mitchelton Uniting Church to cater for the needs of young children and their parents in the local community. As Uniting Churches in the area merged, Tiny Town continued to provide a valuable service to the families in our wider community.
Today we are operated by the Uniting Church Queensland as a consolidated entity within the Uniting Education Early Learning portfolio. Uniting Education embodies the Christian principles of love, forgiveness, respecting and serving others, as well as the values of equity, inclusiveness and care for the environment utilising a play-based learning programme.
We see Tiny Town as one of our important outreach services, working to support our local Enoggera community and meet its ever-changing needs. Because of our long-standing history, we have had the privilege of caring for second and now third generations of the one family in our Centre. Many parents have such strong and positive memories of their time here and see Tiny Town as advancing with the times while still offering the homeliness, care and wisdom of old.
