Laugh. Learn. Love.

South Perth Early Childhood Centre is an established long day care centre, providing excellent care and education for children from birth to six years.

We’re a standalone, not-for-profit centre, owned and operated by the Uniting Church. This means that we’re focused on supporting children, families and staff. Maximising our income is not our highest priority.

Our philosophy draws on a number of leading approaches to child care and early childhood education. Day in, day out, we offer a holistic service that families love.

So you can relax and head off to wherever you need to be, knowing your child is enjoying something wonderful.
