Childcare Services

West Arnhem Regional Council operates the Minjilang Crèche, Warruwi Crèche and the Jabiru Childcare Centre which are all staffed by a passionate and dedicated team.

All three centres embrace the importance of children belonging to, becoming part of, and being recognised as valued members of our culturally diverse society.

We believe children have a right to form safe and secure attachments and positive relationships with our educators, which enables them to develop lifelong skills. Our centres put a strong emphasis on diversity, as well as parental and family involvement.

While the crèches are small in size, the intimate surroundings ensures that each child receives the special attention and personal care that they deserve. Healthy, nutritious meals and snacks are served throughout the day at all three centres.
