Yipirinya School Child Care Centre is largely funded by the Commonwealth Government and is licensed to operate with 20 children. It is controlled by the School and run by a Coordinator and one or two Indigenous assistants. It caters for 2 and 3 year old children and operates from 8:30am to 2:00/3:10pm each weekday in term time. A school bus is available for transporting children to and from the centre.
The Child Care Centre has recently been upgraded and is comprised of a modern purpose built structure including a large play/learning room with adjacent kitchen, bathroom, sleep room and office facilities, as well as a secure outside play area with shaded sand-pit and playground facilities.
Parents/Carers of Child Care children pay fees of $75.00per week, which includes the cost of food and transport. Parents and Carers are always welcome at the Centre and some do in fact spend time there with their children. Daily activities are planned to encourage all areas of development.
