Bungawitta Child Care Centre
Childcare Services - Newnham, TAS
We are committed to providing a high quality child care service which nurtures the potential of each individual child within our community.
Bungawitta was established in 1986 to meet the needs of the families who lived and/or worked in the local community. Our proximity to the University, Maritime College and TAFE means that our families come from all over the greater Launceston area.
The building created quite a stir in 1986 because of its unique child-focussed design and its architect — Robert Morris-Nunn — was the recipient of a major architectural award at the time of the buildings opening.
Bungawitta is proud to be a community-based child care centre and is currently licensed for 47 children per day. The centre has been supported by a Board of Management made up of parents from the centre and at times other community members.
Bungawitta Board of Governance has identified ongoing professional development of our educators as a priority to ensure that we continue to deliver innovative programs to the children.
