About Us

Le Fevre Community Children’s Centre is a 54 place, community based, not for profit Child Care Centre. We offer care for children from 6 weeks of age.

The Centre is open 6:30am- 6:30pm Monday – Friday (51 weeks of the year)
We offer a range of sessions including:

Full day 6:30am- 6:30 pm

Morning 6:30am -12:30pm

Afternoon 12:30-6:30pm

The centre also offers casual sessions when available.

The centre is run by a Management Committee, made up of parents (whose children attend the centre), staff and community members. The committee is responsible for the general administration and financial running of the centre. The director is responsible for the day to day running of the centre and reports to the Management Committee on a monthly basis.

We understand that at the heart of quality care is good, two way communication. We strive to ensure parents receive regular and meaningful information, through individual communication books, portfolio’s, daily information sheets and regular verbal communication.

We understand that leaving children in Child Care is a difficult decision and therefore offer a no charge orientation process to enable families to spend time getting to know us before leaving your children in our care.
Developing good relationships with staff and management in Child Care is critical to make you feel comfortable about leaving your child in care
