Care Groups

Most new enrolments at Cottesloe Child Care Centre occur at the end of the year, with children starting at the centre in January. As the year progresses, children and babies may move from their care room to the next, however it is usual for children to remain in their care group for the year.

Infants Room

This welcoming room adjoins the baby room and the two rooms share the same garden. Learning is supported by vibrant and flexible spaces that are responsive to the interests and abilities of each child.

Kindy Room
