Welcome to the Castlemaine Childcare Co-operative

Carinya is Castlemaine’s Early Childhood hub.

We specialise in Long day care, Family day care, In Venue family day care, Before and After School care and soon Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) within the Mount Alexander region.

We are a not-for-profit community Co-operative situated in the heart of Castlemaine in Central Victoria.  We operate a 60-place long day care centre for children between the ages of six weeks and five years of age, including a full kinder and pre kinder programs.

We also manage Family Day Care, a network of educators who provide programs for under school age and school age children in their own homes.

Castlemaine Childcare Co-operative has been providing accredited, quality child care since our centre was founded by a group of parents in 1982.  The Co-operative continues to be run by a committee of management made up of parents.

We aim to give children the best possible experience of childhood in an environment where they feel safe, stimulated and encouraged to develop their individual strengths.
