We’re family-focused. And we’re here to stay.

While we haven’t always been known as the South Perth Early Childhood Centre, we’ve been caring for and educating children for more than 20 years.

Established in 1993, we’re owned and operated by the Uniting Church. Our management committee consists of members of the church, staff and families of the centre, and members of the community.

Although our philosophy is based on our Christian values and beliefs, we welcome all families – regardless of background. We also offer pastoral care to families on request.

Changing with the times.

The façade of our building doesn’t quite match the progressive work being done inside.

We use a best-practice approach, drawing on the best of the leading child philosophies to help children thrive. Our current move towards creating a more natural play environment is part of this.

A caring centre of excellence

At SPECC, we consistently exceed National Quality Standards. We operate with above-award child/staff ratios and offer engaging, play-based programs that are educational and fun.

Thanks to our valued, long-serving team of qualified educators, we give children the best start in life.
