Childminding Space

Our spacious play area is equipped with lots of wonderful toys and books. When a child is accompanied by a parent or guardian, this room is available for use during any of the Centre’s regular hours. Children can also play in the care of trained Childminders while a parent or guardian is in the Centre; enjoy a coffee and conversation in the Drop-in or participate in a program.

Regular Childminding hours are:

  • Monday 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
  • Tuesday 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
  • Wednesday 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
  • Friday 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Please note: children must remain with parent’s caregivers at all times. If children are in the childminding room, parents/caregivers must remain in the building.
