Mama Bear Child Care Centre

for infants aged 0-5 years


Exceeding National Standard - Bear Child Care Centres


we believe as in god’s eyes, all children are to be loved and cared for as equals...

With the increasing demand of care for 0-2yr olds in the area, Con & Dora Savva opened Mama Bear Child Care Centre in January 2009. Mama Bear is our first centre which caters for 0-2yrs age group and is licensed for 40 children per day, between the ages of 0yrs-5yrs. We are open 7.30am – 6pm approx. 50 weeks/year, closing at no charge to families over the Christmas/New Years period.

Mama Bear also 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! Although many people ask, “what’s upstairs?” – it’s our storeroom and staffroom!

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

Mama 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, All Saints Orthodox, Our Lady of Fatima, 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 centres’ programs.

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

3 Playrooms at Mama Bear

There are 3 Playrooms at Mama Bear:

Mama Bear has 2 outdoor areas: one for the Bubba Cubs and one large outdoor area equipped with both fixed and removable structures for the 2yrs – 5yrs ages. The Educators prepare a Weekly Outdoor Interest-based Program providing varied and exciting physically active or quiet opportunities in the fresh outdoors for your child. Whilst there are separate outdoor areas and playrooms for the different age groups, during morning drop off and afternoon pick up times, ALL children are together so they can enjoy mixed social play – its important the Bubbas learn to feel safe with older children, and that older children learn to play carefully around the Bubbas. This has proved to be particularly helpful in assisting older children who have new babies in the family, and are struggling to cope with changes to family dynamics.

Mama Bear also has a Kitchen with a Cook who provides wholesome, nutritious meals for your children; a Laundry for laundering sheets, blankets and uniform hats; and a Staffroom and Staff Bathroom for the BearTeam. The children’s Washroom is shared between the 2 Playrooms and has nappy change, shower, and toileting facilities.
