Barfa Bear Child Care Centre

for children aged 2-5 years


Exceeding National Standard - Bear Child Care Centres


we believe that all children are special, individual, precious gifts from god...

Con & Dora Savva always dreamed of opening a child care centre – and in January 2006, their dream finally came true with the opening of Barfa Bear Child Care Centre.

Barfa Bear has a real warm home-like setting. From outside the building you would not think it was a child care centre, and that’s how we like it! Barfa Bear is licensed for 36 children per day, between the ages of 2yrs-5yrs. We are open 7.30am – 6.00pm approx. 50 weeks per year, closing at no charge to families over the Christmas/New Years period.

Barfa Bear is an air-conditioned building with security intercom for parental access.

Barfa Bear has worked very hard over many years to establish such strong and respectful relationships with our local feeder schools, to ensure our Pre-School Cubs receive the best preparation for their start at “Big School”. Our main feeder schools are Regina Coeli Catholic, McCallums Hill Public, Beverly Hills North Public, St Joseph’s Catholic and Clemton Park Public. Annually we hold School Readiness Information Evenings collectively with Barfa & Mama Bear, with our feeder school Principals and Kindergarten faculty teachers always happy to discuss the best preparation for your child, always with highly impressive feedback from these schools of how well our program exceeds expectations and in particular in comparison to other local child care centre programs.

Our Monday children enjoy FREE Planet Yoga lessons and FREE Mandarin Language lessons.
