- Monash Children's Centre Co-op Ltd (Clayton)

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.
