Our Centre


Mackinnon Parade Children’s Centre Inc. has a long history of community involvement. Initially, it was established in the mid-twentieth century by the University of Adelaide as a child care facility used by staff and students. Later, access was made available to the staff of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.


In 1986 the focus changed and the centre became available to the general community. That year, the building was purchased with funds provided by Government departments and we began operation as a community-based children’s centre.
