bestchance Child Family Care (the operating name of Child and Family Care Network Inc.) is an independent, not-for-profit, community organisation conveniently located in Glen Waverley with easy freeway access and on-site parking.
Providing universal, specialist, educational and welfare services, bestchance has adopted an innovative and holistic approach to assisting young children and families by integrating its suite of community services in the one complex. These family oriented programs include Child Care, Early Childhood Intervention, Parent and Child Support, Training, Community Support and Cheshire an independent, primary school for children with social, emotional and learning difficulties. In addition to its on-site services, bestchance, in partnership with parents, manages many local kindergartens.
The bestchance model has continued to evolve over the years in response to the ever changing needs within the community. From our early days of institutional child care and crisis support, we now focus on implementing early intervention strategies and respectfully work alongside families to develop skills, resiliency and self sufficiency.
Our complex is one where everyone can relax and mingle in the comfort of a supportive, non-discriminatory and welcoming environment.
Organisations who are interested in viewing our new Children's Centre or of learning more about our experiences in building our Centre should contact our General Manager on 8562 5100.

Wishing Tree Program
For many years the bestchance Wishing Tree Program has endeavored to ease the anxiety felt by many families in the lead up to Christmas, one of the most memorable times of the year for any child.
To relieve some of the concerns facing struggling parents face, we make available a hamper consisting of items associated with Christmas, some of the more staple family needs and one new gift for each child that parents can give as their own.
The bestchance Wishing Tree Program is funded entirely by donations from the Community and for many, this reflects the true meaning of giving. This year the demand for Wishing Tree will be higher than ever and we would be grateful for your kind assistance in any of the following ways:
- Food donations to include in our hampers
- Purchasing a Christmas gift for any child aged 0 – 16 (recommended to the value of $30. Please avoid toys with batteries or which promote violence)
- Cash, card or cheque donation for Wishing Tree Program
If you can assist in any way please call Geraldine Ryan on 8562 5100 or visit reception to make a donation.
