Childcare centres

Clayton, Caulfield, Peninsula

We have arrangements with licensed childcare centres near our Clayton, Caulfield and Peninsula campuses. They offer lower fees for Monash students and salary packaging is available for staff. Eligible parents can claim the Australian Government's Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate.

These centres observe the same public holidays as the University.

Finding the right childcare to meet the needs of your family situation can take some time. Make sure you start this process early. The University's childcare centres are in high demand, especially for children under the age of two, and places are not guaranteed.

You're strongly encouraged to place your name on the waiting list early in your pregnancy. While places may occasionally become available throughout the year, the main intake is in January. You can organise a tour of the facilities and get information from the centres' websites, including immunisation requirements.

Finding childcare services

To find childcare services close to home, the government website MyChild offers helpful information about types of childcare and learning centres. You can use the database to find childcare centres in your local area, and in many cases, check the vacancy and fee information.

School holiday program

Camp Australia runs a school holiday program (Holiday Club) at the Clayton campus. Book online or by calling 1300 105 343.

Parenting rooms on campus
