The Centre was originally sponsored by the Gold Coast City Council who co-ordinated the provision of the Centre from State and Government funding which was made available to the local community. The State and Federal Governments provided the land and building of the Centre and the local council provided extra inclusions such as carpets, awnings etc.
There was also an initial equipment grant provided by the Federal Government. The inaugural Director, Ms Christine Holden, was appointed in January 1988 along with the formation of an interim Management Commitee, which allowed parents and other interested members of the community, the opportunity to participate constructively in the management and also be immediately responsive to the needs of the Centre.
The centre commenced operation on 3rd May 1988. The Director and her staff had little difficulty in filling places at the Centre and this well motivated Centre commenced its history of providing excellent quality childcare in a warm and caring community environment.
The first permanent Management Committee was appointed at the first Annual General Meeting on the 14th September 1988 and the Association was made an Incorporation body on the 3rd November 1988.
Miami Community Childrens Centre encourages early learning and child care who provide the foundation for children to develop both educationally and socially in a safe environment while supporting parents into work.
