Quality childcare in a
welcoming & supportive environment

Child Care in Canberra

By Hosinator 18 April 2011 21

We are expecting our first child in a few months and were told today that we should have booked them into a child care centre as soon as my wife peed on the stick. 

We are looking for suggestions on childcare centres in the Weston Creek, Woden or Civic area.

Our preference is child care centres where they provide some learning and play and not just play and more importantly centres where there are good carers.

We intend on sending our child there from between 12 and 18 months old.

Any suggestions on what to ask the child care centres when we meet with them would be appreciated, can we ask for a tour of the facility and is there anything to look out for?

Any help is appreciated.

My daughter went to the Weston Creek Children’s Centre and loved it – I can’t recommend strongly enough. The manager, Emma, always put the needs of the kids first and my little girl thrived.

I’d recommend talking to Emma about putting your name down on the waiting list. She was really helpful to me, as I also didn’t put my name down until I was a fair way into my pregnancy.

Also, they have an approved preschool program for the older kids.

I absolutely agree, Weston Creek Childrens centre is wonderful. My child attended from 2 years old and was in the Pre School program as well as a Public Pre School. They actually have qualified Pre School teachers and the staff are amazing. I initially had my son in family day care and when the carer decided to finish up, we felt lost! We were so fortunate to get a place 4 days a week and my son has absolutely blossomed. My family are now enrolling their children in as early as possible to secure a place. My son still talks about Lynnie and Kelly and Katrina (the staff), he has very fond memories of it. Would highly recommend. Feel free to contact me personally with any questions as we had tried a few other places before finding this gem.
