East Cannington Early Learning Centre
YMCA East Cannington Early Learning Centre provides a diverse team of Educators who are inclusive and welcoming of all families. With bush land directly adjacent to the service, the children often experience bushwalking and nature exploration as well as play based learning, growing a vegetable garden and water play. The sense of community and homely atmosphere makes our Centre a home away from home. At every opportunity, children are discovering and bringing their learning to life.
We offer places for children from birth to 5 years, we only serve nutritious home-style food and fees are affordable. Plus the centre runs a Pre-Kindy program with a qualified Early Childhood Teacher. The centre is a member of Remida - a creative reuse centre that supplies recyclable materials to services for children to be creative with and learn about sustainability.
YMCA East Cannington Early Learning Centre was rated as Exceeding National Quality Standards in the areas of “Physical Environments, Staffing Arrangements and Leadership and Service Management”.

There is nothing more rewarding as Educators, than to watch the children and families grow and love the centre as much as we do. Watching the children gain a sense of achievement when they accomplish a new challenge is exciting – especially when we know that we had an impact on it. Building strong relationships with each family makes our day complete.
My daughter attends East Cannington YMCA centre in the babies room. Since attending the centre my daughter has come leaps and bounds developmentally. She has developed amazing relationships with the workers and the centre and we really see them putting in the effort with the kids each day. I could not be happier with my choice of care and could not compliment the staff highly enough. We love our daycare!

My son Julius has been at YMCA East Cannington for a couple of weeks now and I can see that he really enjoys being there. It is still hard for him in the mornings when I leave but the girls are great at calming him down. The girls in the Nursery are super friendly and always have a smile of their faces. Today when I came to collect Julius, I watched him at afternoon tea, singing and interacting with all the other children. Such a wonderful thing to see, and it reassures me that he is in safe hands and in a loving environment.

My children have been attending the YMCA Early Learning Centre for four years. In my opinion the staff excel at their professional roles, making early learning a fun & rewarding experience. More importantly, they are warm & nurturing with the children, which allows personal growth through trust, and for individual learning issues to be identified - should there be any. Communication with me as a parent is fantastic, patience with behavioural & developmental issues is optimum (eg. toilet training) and my children have clearly benefited from their collective experiences at the Centre. I would not hesitate to recommend YMCA East Cannington ELC as the premier child care centre in our area.
