Our Facilities


Nestled within the CSIRO grounds in Clayton, the CSIROCare building itself offers families a secure location where they can be confident that their children are being cared for in a protected, safe environment.


We have five playrooms, each with their own outdoor play area with plenty of natural environment to explore. Individual hats and 30+ non allergenic sunscreen are provided for outdoor play.

A huge range of indoor resources are also readily available; from books to toys and musical instruments to dress-ups. We want the children to enjoy a range of activities that promote learning and development while they have fun!


Separate sleeping/resting rooms are set up for babies and toddlers. In these areas, we have cots for children under two years old and mattresses for children over two.

All linen is provided and laundered on the premises.


Nutritional, culturally diverse meals are prepared fresh every day in our kitchen. Meals, breakfast before 8am, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and milk are all provided.

We are happy to provide milk required for particular dietary requirements (eg: rice milk) but formula is to be provided by the families.

We will also provide birthday cake to celebrate each child’s special day!

And More...

Disposable nappies are provided by the centre. Families are welcome to use cloth nappies, but these must be provided by the family and laundered at home.

Mothers are encouraged to breastfeed throughout the day in our comfy rocking chair!
