Our team’s diverse professional knowledge in social infrastructure produces substantial dividends.


The child care industry in Australia has experienced unprecedented growth in recent years, driven by a combination of supply and demand factors.

The Federal Government’s National Quality Framework (NQF) introduced in 2012, has provided the groundwork for a sustained focus on care, quality, qualifications and education in the child care industry.

Gone are the days of child-minding and babysitting, parents are increasingly seeking the highest quality services, early education and care for their children. Strong population growth and rising female labour force participation rates drive the demand for child care services. This has generated an ongoing supply in the form of additional childcare centres being developed.

Growing by one person every 5 minutes; Victoria is facing the fastest growth of all the states in Australia. It is driven by Melbourne’s strong infrastructure, healthcare and education.

The female labour force participation reached an historic high of 60.5% in January 2018.

While some areas in Victoria are experiencing an over-supply of childcare centres, there are areas throughout Melbourne and regional Victoria that need quality professional child care.

Since 2014, Mollard Property Group have been responsible for the creation of more than 2,400+ childcare places within the child care industry. Furthermore, our Development Management Team has achieved a 100% success rate on all development approvals.

Our Team and external consultants hold the critical knowledge required to identify and analyse child care development sites and opportunities; from location, competition analysis (existing and upcoming centres), traffic & pedestrian access and traffic flow, catchment area identification, daily fees, number of children to comply with NQF, demographic analysis, just to name a few.
