Womin Jeka-Welcome to Our New Website!

Bubup Wilam means ‘Children’s Place’ in Woi Wurrung language. Bubup Wilam is an Aboriginal Child and Family Centre in the suburb of Thomastown, in the City of Whittlesea, inMelbourne‘s north.
Bubup Wilam for Early Learning provides Aboriginal children, families and the community with access to an integrated range of services and programs, including: early intervention and prevention programs, early years education, and health and wellbeing services.

Our vision:

“In partnership with families, Bubup Wilam for Early Learning aims to nurture strong, proud and deadly kids in a culturally rich and supportive environment”

Bubup Wilam seeks to underpin and strengthen this vision through our philosophy of instilling and strengthening children’s strong sense of Aboriginalidentity and personal self-esteem as their foundation for lifelong learning, health and wellbeing. This equates to children, with the support of their parents and extended family, taking a lead responsibility in owning and developing their play, space, interaction, learning and engagement with others in a confident and supported way. Guided by the teaching staff, we aim to ensure our children at a very early age begin the journey in reaching their full human potential.
