Children are an important part of our community, accounting for almost 1 in 5 residents. In total, there are approximately 27,000 children and adolescents aged 0-14 years and an annual birth rate of 2225.
The Greater Dandenong Children’s Plan 2015-19 has been developed through an extensive process of review of the Municipal Early Years Plan 2010-14 through community and stakeholder engagement.
The Children’s Plan addresses policy priorities of State and Federal governments and has responded to the unique issues, challenges and opportunities identified for children and families in the City of Greater Dandenong. Specifically, the Plan recognises and responds to the cultural, language and socio-economic diversity.
