The centre is available to the general public as well as Fiona Stanley Hospital employees and is open every day of the year, including weekends and public holidays.

Wanslea Early Learning and Development (WELD) won the Department of Health tender to provide up to 102 childcare places.

Wanslea chief executive Tricia Murray said the Susan Teather Centre catered for children aged up to five years and included a weekday kindergarten for three to five year olds.

The centre is in Jennalup Street, Murdoch, on the Fiona Stanley Hospital site.

�There are natural, open spaces to facilitate child-led learning and provide opportunities for children to fulfil their potential in a secure, caring and stimulating environment where they feel safe to explore and grow,� Ms Murray said.

�We offer a rich curriculum, encourage families and the community to be involved in our activities, and celebrate community and ethnic events. We demonstrate our respect for culture and commitment to excellence in care and education.�

The Centre is named after Susan Teather, a former Wanslea board member who was instrumental in the development of early childhood education in Western Australia.
