Our child care program is open to members and casual visitors seeking care for their children.

Children are supervised by qualified carers in a dedicated interactive space equipped with games and toys. We provide children with the opportunity to socialise in a family/multi-age setting, where they can explore new experiences in a stimulating and caring environment. We welcome children from 6 weeks old.

We offer two styles of care in our centre: Sessional Care and Occasional Care.

  • Sessional Care: for parents and carers who are planning to stay within the centre while their child is in care.
  • Occasional Care: for parents and carers who would like to pursue activities outside the centre while their child is in care.

So whether you’re attending a weekly group fitness class or have an offsite appointment, we have care options to meet your needs.

Children will be engaged in a range of activities, including:

Arts & crafts

Music & movement

Outdoor play

Story time
