Established on 29th April 1973. Titles to the property, building and contents were transferred to the Styles Street Children’s Community Long Day Care Centre Association in 1988 with the purchase of the Centre from the previous owners, the Capuchin Franciscan Friars. The purchase was funded with a grant from the Federal Department of Community Services and Health.

The Association was formed in 1986 to secure the operation of the Centre and its members are drawn from the parents of children attending the Centre. To become a member of the association you need only lodge an application form and pay an annual fee of $2.
