MercyCare takes to the airwaves

The faces and voices of MercyCare’s Early Learning Centres are currently gracing billboards and radio adverts on FM station, Nova 93.7.

Four-year-old Alara from our Heathridge centre voiced one of the ads in which she shares some of the Noongar language she has learnt at the centre.


The pre-recorded ads and live reads, which are done by Nova’s Breakfast team; Nathan, Nat and Sean, are part of our ‘What matters to you, matters to us’ campaign.

Alara’s mum Lisa also features in the series of ads and we’ve made the most of our MercyCare talent with Early Learning Services Manager Rosina Smith also taking part.

The message behind the campaign, which you may also spot on billboards or in your local shopping centre, reflects the person centred care and learning provided at our Early Learning Centres.

The campaign highlights the wonderful communities within our early learning centres with the first of the billboards to be finalised featuring a child from our Ellenbrook centre.  

We have passionate teams of educators who provide a very important service to families throughout our 14 centres across Perth.

Early Learning Services have continued to operate amid changing circumstances throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

MercyCare educators have adapted to ensure additional hygiene measures are adhered to and worked with families to continue to provide care for children during uncertain times.

While the government’s free-childcare arrangement meant centres have had to work under a different funding model since it was introduced in April, our centres have continued to take new enrolments.

It has since been announced this temporary measure ends as of July 13.

The Federal Government has however, eased the activity test for accessing the Child Care Subsidy until October 4 to support eligible families whose employment has been impacted as a result of COVID-19
