We look forward to welcoming both new and existing members of Kalamunda Community Learning Centre to the creche facilities at the Kalamunda Community Centre.
Children aged 8 weeks to 6 years are welcome in the crèche. Please note that children and babies must not be present in any Learning Centre class with parents/carers under any circumstances.
Use of the crèche is conditional upon parents/carers concurrently being enrolled in a course at the Learning Centre and being physically present in their scheduled class.
Parents and carers must remain at the Kalamunda Community Centre whilst leaving their child in the crèche.
Two qualified paid leaders run the crèche. Both have a first aid certificate, anaphylaxis and asthma training.
The crèche operates on a ratio of one staff member per four children regardless of age. Two staff are present for five or more children and the use of extra volunteers is weighted towards the busier days.
The crèche operates from the Mirda-Djardak Pink Room within the Kalamunda Community Centre and is open every weekday morning and afternoon during term time.
At the crèche, children can interact with other children and develop social skills through play. The emphasis is on free play within safe boundaries.
Parents and Carers who are enrolled in a course full-time and are using the services of the crèche can choose to pay $5 per session OR place their names on the crèche roster to assist the professionals. It’s a lovely way to make new friends who also have the care of a young child.
Members who attend a course at the Learning Centre on a casual basis and wish to use the services of the crèche need to give the crèche staff 24 hours notice and pay $5 per session.
For more information, please download a copy of our Creche Parents’ Handbook.
If you are a new member please download the Creche Enrolment Form and bring it with you completed to your first drop off at the crèche.
