Our Leisureplex Crèches allow you to work out, play a sport, go for a swim, or visit the library while your little one is well looked after.

The crèche offers fully supervised care for children aged 12 weeks through to six years of age. Children are well-cared for by experienced staff in a fun, safe, and fully-equipped environment. Children will have plenty of activities to keep them busy during their stay.

Parents/guardians must remain on the premises while their children attend the crèche. We ask parents to complete an enrolment form (PDF 280KB) and present the child's immunisation record for the staff to sight on their child's first visit.

A bigger, better creche at Riverton Leisureplex

The Riverton Leisureplex is expanding its creche offering.

In order to keep up with the increasing demand for our creche service, the City of Canning has decided to relocate the creche facility at the Riverton Leisureplex (RLP) to a bigger, better space.

The new creche location, at the Wellness Studio at RLP, will have a capacity of almost double that of the current location, allowing us to provide this popular service to more Leisureplex guests and members.


Bookings are essential and must be made at least one day in advance. Bookings can be made up to one week in advance. Please follow the booking guide (PDF 440KB).
