The Wallaby Day Care Room’s name comes from the Aboriginal name “Wara” which means ‘Wallaby’ and is derived from the Darumbal language

At Elfin House Community Child Care Centre we as Professionals believe early childhood is a unique, exciting and valuable stage in life and that with positive partnerships and teamwork, together, we can genuinely contribute to the best start in life for each child with play based learning.  We are committed to providing a safe, secure and healthy environment for the children in our care.

We would like to welcome you and your child to the Wallaby Day Care Room.  Children will experience both indoor and outdoor play.  They will be encouraged to participate in a range of physical, creative and sensory experiences.
