CSIROCare Clayton is a community-based, not-for-profit childcare centre offering long-day care and 4-year-old kindergarten programs. While the primary charge of the centre is to provide support for families of CSIRO employees, the centre also welcomes families from the wider community.

Both full and part time care is available for children aged 6-weeks to 5-years of age, spanning five playrooms, each with its own (shaded) outdoor area. The centre is conveniently located on Research Way, adjoining both the CSIRO and Monash Clayton campuses.

We encourage families seeking childcare options to contact our centre director to discuss their needs and arrange a time to visit the centre.

CSIROCare Clayton was established as a community based child care centre on 7th April 1992 and is managed by a committee of dedicated parent volunteers.


Parent Feedback:

“I have had a fantastic relationship with the CSIROCare staff, families and management for the last 7 years. I highly recommend the centre, particularly the caring staff who always strive to do their best for the children.”

“Staff are kind and professional, they create a comfortable environment for our child away from home. T here is a high level of two-way feedback regarding events and activities that my child participates in, as a result I feel well informed regarding their education and progress.”

“The staff are always amazing and caring. I am very pleased with how well my child settled into the Centre, and I am always confident that when I drop him off he will receive an excellent level of care.”
