Creche

SA100002.jpg

The creche at the Town of Victoria Park leisure centres provides busy parents with the opportunity to balance caring for their young children with a healthy and active lifestyle.

The crèche staff are friendly and experienced childcare workers that all hold a working with children check. Parents are always welcome to come down and have a look at the crèche and meet the team.

We have story time, art and craft, home corner, drawing, play dough and loads more!

 The crèche takes children from eight weeks to five years of age.

Session times: Patrons may only arrive into the crèche five minutes before their allotted booking time. If patrons arrive earlier than this, they may be asked to wait outside the crèche for their correct session time. If patrons are running late for their booking, their booking time will not be changed or extended. Children must be collected as per the booked session end time regardless of arrival time.

Cancellations: Cancellations must be done prior to 8am on the day of booking. Cancellations after 8am will be considered as a non-attendance, and the patron will be notified by email or text message that a crèche booking has been missed, and a late/cancellation fee per child will be added to member’s account (regardless of membership). Consistent non-attendance will result in being excluded from the crèche service.
