The Curtin University Early Childhood Centre provides nurturing, learning-focused programs based on play for children of Curtin students, staff and the wider community.
Located on the Perth Campus, the centre caters for children five years old and under.

The centre provides a warm and caring environment where your child can learn and grow. The curriculum is designed to assist children to become lifelong learners.
Priority of access is given to staff and students on campus. It is a popular centre with an extensive waiting list, therefore it is essential to complete a Waiting List Application Form as soon as possible and to investigate other childcare options should a place not become available at the centre.
