The Morley Recreation Centre
The Morley Recreation Centre is the local YMCA location. They offer a range of family-friendly activities and services. We like their child care programs that help provide working mums with an affordable solution to child care, offering what they call a “safe, affordable age appropriate environment” for both children and their parents. They pride themselves on their professional and motivated staff and the environment they provide.
They offer Out of School Hours care from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Children are provided with enjoyable activities and an afternoon tea. Morley Recreation Centre currently picks up children from four schools: West Morley Primary, Morley Primary, Hill Crest Primary and Infant Jesus Primary. They also allow for the dropping off of children who don’t attend any of those four schools and they accept children with disabilities.
For parents who need some place for their children to go during school vacations, Morley Recreation Centre offers Vacation Care from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm on vacation days.
For health club members, they offer free creche service. Visitors to the health club can drop their children off at the creche for $3.50 per child.
Why We Like Morley
We like Morley because it is family-friendly. We like the fact that working mums have an affordable option for child care while they work. This helps ensure timely rent payments.
