In 1996 City Learning and Care Ariston opened its doors in Pakington St Newtown on Wadawurrung land. Over the past 25 years, hundreds of children and families and many, many staff have passed through its doors and have contributed to the creation of the beautiful service we see today.

To celebrate this special occasion we are inviting all current and past educators, staff, families and children to contribute their memories.

Later in the year we will have an open day to celebrate. It will be a wonderful day to look around the service, have some fun with the face painting and balloon making and participate in range of other free activities in the grounds of Ariston 245-249 Pakington St Geelong West. Stay tuned for a date!!

If you would like to share with us any photos, children's drawings or memories you have of your time at Ariston we would love you to Have Your Say below. Your Ariston memories and highlights will help us celebrate 25 years as well as allow us to reflect on, learn from and grow the service we offer to our current children and families.
