Child care

So you can focus on your health and well being we are there to focus on your child at our childcare. At Ivanhoe Aquatic we understand that your family creates a part of your overall wellbeing.

Take the time to invest in yourself whilst leaving your child in our creche, designed to keep your child entertained, safe and just around the corner. Our childcare provides a balanced range of educational, music, dance, dress-up, social and recreational experiences for children aged from birth to 5 years old.

Our childcare room operates in accordance with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development Regulations with a maximum of 20 children at any one time.

To arrange a tour of the childcare centre, call us on 9490 7119 between the hours of 8.30am to noon, Monday to Friday.

Opening hours

The crèche opens at 9am and closes at 12pm Monday to Friday. Session times are:

  • Session 1 – 9am-10.30am
  • Session 2 – 10.30am-12pm

The crèche is closed on public holidays and operates for limited hours during school holidays. 

Occasional care is available from 9am-12pm. Occasional care means extended child care time (3 hours) and you may leave the premises during these hours.

You must ensure that you are in and out of the crèche only during your specific session time. Special consideration may be given to across session bookings if you have a gym assessment or your child’s sibling is attending a swimming lesson.

What to bring

  • Change of clothing and nappy and wipes if required
  • A light and healthy snack in a container clearly labelled with your child’s name
  • A drink bottle clearly labelled with your child’s name

You can bring your child’s pram as we have an external path which provides pram access and avoids the entrance steps. We discourage children from bringing toys from home as they can get misplaced or broken.


The crèche is subject to strict guidelines set by the Health Department, which means that children who are unwell cannot attend Crèche.

We are ‘nut and nut product free’ due to the risk of allergies.
