ENQUIRE ABOUT VACANCIES NOW
We want children to feel like our centre is their home away from home. We love getting them involved in fun activities, as well as seeing where their creative minds take them throughout the day.
Our dedicated and passionate team of educators work hard to create an atmosphere where children can thrive.
Building confidence in little ones is important to us, so we have a focus on teaching children self-help skills.
Our centre values the surrounding environment and we incorporate sustainable practices where we can, such as saving food scraps to go into our worm farm and using recycled materials for art and craft projects.
One of the activities we do as a group is MiniChef Mondays where children of all ages work together to follow a different recipe each week to create tasty dishes which often feature items from our veggie garden.
Our large outdoor play space has two separate play areas each with sandpits. The babies and toddlers share a play space and pre-kindy/kindy children share an outdoor play space.
The shaded sandpits in both areas are always popular.
The children love being able to watch the fruit trees and bush tucker plants in our outside area as they grow and change throughout the year.
Our daily yoga classes provide children a fun way to move and stretch as well as practice mindfulness and calming techniques.
Parents can also choose for their children to take part in Happy Feet, an interactive dance and movement program and/or Salsa Tots, a class that combines dance with an introduction to the Spanish language.
Ages and stages
Our centre has areas for babies, toddlers, pre-kindy and kindy children.
The older children take part in a dedicated kindy program designed to prepare them for school.
Parents at our centre love the peace of mind that comes with the app we use to communicate with them throughout the day. Xplor provides real time updates with photos about what your child is enjoying and discovering with their friends and educators.
We offer flexible care arrangements, including half days and the option for a 10-hour session which means you can make the most out of your childcare subsidy across the week.
We are conveniently located close to Old Perth Road and just a short walk from the Bassendean Train Station.

I have been working in early learning since I was 15 years old – it’s something I’ve always wanted to do.
Every day, I see children’s faces light up when they learn something or achieve a new milestone – that’s the reward.
Here at Bassendean, I have come to know the families and developed great relationships with parents. It is so important because they are entrusting the care of their children to us.
As Centre Manager I aim to promote play-based learning – allowing each child to grow, learn and develop through play and by exploring the world around them.
I have a Bachelor of Education and Diploma of Early Childhood Education.
"I am so, so pleased I chose MercyCare for Joshie. It’s so nerve-racking and upsetting leave your baby for the first time but I’m extremely grateful that he has been in your care- I can’t believe how much he has learnt and is developing - it’s amazing! I won’t be able to thank you and your team enough for taking such good care of my Joshua."
"My husband and I just want to say that we are so happy with everything that MercyCare has done for Judd - we appreciate all your hard work.
Juddy loves going to daycare, enjoys everything you teach him and loves all the people there. Thank you all for being amazing."
"Thanks to you all for everything you have done for both girls this year. Ellie is absolutely ‘kindy ready’ and has made some good friends at MercyCare."
