Childcare centres

ECU has long day care centres on its Joondalup and Mount Lawley campuses and at the College Community Childcare Centre, located on the South West Institute of Technology’s Bunbury campus (next to ECU’s South West campus).

The childcare centres are managed by qualified staff and are subject to the National Quality Standards required by the Australian government. Each centre provides programs that are developmentally appropriate and responsive to the needs of the individual child.

The centres are open to ECU’s students and staff as well as members of the general community.

Please note the centres do not provide occasional care. See our occasional care page for more information.
