Wiggly Toes Crèche – Next to Red Dot and the medical centre at Cockburn Shopping Centre, you can find Wiggly Toes Crèche.
For $10 per hour you can drop your child off in their care for a play while you shop or meet a friend for coffee. You can leave your child for 1 or 2 hours. If you need longer, they ask that you pick up your child for a snack break before dropping them back.
A 10% discount on the entry fee is available for members of selected gyms, and with their loyalty card, your child’s 6th visit is half price.
We found the Wiggly Toes Crèche staff to be friendly and welcoming. Miss 2.5 was greeted as well as myself, with the staff member checking her in chatting to her about the things she likes. The staff we met seem gentle and caring, genuinely interested in the kids in their care. Miss 2.5 was excited to go in. She could barely wait for the Wiggly Toes staff member to open the gate!
One of the best things about this crèche, from a parent perspective, is there is no electronic games or TV. Children are encouraged to use their imagination and be active. So the crèche just has play equipment and books to choose from.
The main attraction for Miss 2.5 was the large climbing frame. She headed straight for that when she went in. It is kitted out with things like ladders, a trampoline, and a slide with a ball pit, and decorated in a bright jungle theme.
The crèche is bright and colourful, and a welcoming environment for children. I loved the back wall decorated with kids hand prints.
If you’re concerned with security and safety, I felt Wiggly Toes Crèche met both these criteria. You and your child are tagged with a matching wrist band with a number. Only you with your wrist band can come and collect your child. The staff are led by a registered nurse who is also a trained preschool teacher. As with most play centres, socks must be worn at all times to protect children’s feet.
Based on the play equipment we saw, I believe children from toddlers to about 8 years old would enjoy themselves most here. Older children may become bored after a while as it may not be challenging enough. Miss 2.5 enjoyed it so much that she didn’t want to leave when I came to collect her!
If your child enjoys their time with Wiggly Toes Crèche and has a birthday coming up, party packages are available starting at $165 for 8 children, which includes 90 minutes in the party room and an hour on the play equipment.
Wiggly Toes Crèche Cockburn is located at 816 Beeliar Drive, Success.
Opening hours are:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 9am to 5pm
Thursday 9am to 8.30pm
Saturday 9am to 4pm
Sunday 11am to 4pm.
