Welcome to Ada Mary A’Beckett

Children’s Centre

Located in a quiet pocket of Port Melbourne, Ada Mary A’Beckett Children’s Centre is nestled amongst residential houses, right next to the beach. Despite being just 5km from the CBD, the centre boasts plenty of outdoor space, and large yards, for the children to enjoy. We boast an exceeding rating from ACECQA– meaning we exceed the national benchmark for high quality early childhood education and care. ACECQA is an independent national statutory authority responsible for overseeing important changes to early childhood education and care and outside school hours care in Australia.

Families can make use of easy walking access with secure pram, scooter and bike storage, while our off-street car park allows safe drop off and collection. With all-day parking near-by and easy access to the CBD by bus or tram, our centre is well positioned for families in neighbouring suburbs who commute to the CBD or Docklands. Open 52 weeks per year.


We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, the Boon Wurrung people, and the people of the Kulin Nation; we pay our respects to their Elders past, present, and emerging.

What our parents think

Ada Mary is a fantastic day care center.  Our son has been there for the last 3 years and he loves going there! Sometimes he even asks to go there during the weekend! 

Fantastic educators, healthy homemade food, diversified activities that teach them to take care of themselves, respect each other and enjoy our environment with care…. We would highly recommend this childcare to everyone

Ada Mary is such a welcoming environment, it’s like a second home for our family. Both of our girls have loved their time there. The staff are caring, the programs are stimulating and fun, and the outdoor spaces are perfect for little adventurers.
