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.
All children attending the crèche must be registered for the session they will be attending. During enrolment parents/carers need to enrol their child via the relevant ‘Crèche Registration’ session (e.g., Crèche Registration Monday AM). We advise members to register their children before enrolling in their own courses to ensure there is a vacancy for them. At the checkout members will also need to complete and submit the Crèche Notification Form.
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 during the term and for some afternoons depending on demand.
At the crèche, children can interact with other children and develop social skills through play. The emphasis is on free play within safe boundaries.
All members using the crèche facility need to pay a weekly fee for each session their child attends: $5 per child or $10 for 2 or more children. Payment is made via the purchase of Crèche Tickets from the Reception Desk.

If you are a new member please download the Crèche Child Information Form and bring it with you completed to your first drop off at the crèche.
