Home / Community / Services / For Children / Childcare

There is a range of childcare options for families in Darwin which provide full and part time care for children from birth to twelve years of age, childcare centres, family day care, vacation care and outside school hours care programs.

We recommended that families visit a range of services and choose an appropriate environment. This will give you an opportunity to see how they operate and how they will best meet the needs of your child. To find childcare in your local area visit the mychild website.

Our Council Supported Childcare Centres

We assist a number of Childcare Centres in Darwin through provision and maintenance of the buildings.

These Childcare Centres provide care and education for children from babies to five years and vary in service provision, operating hours, fees and placements on offer.
