A Strong History
Little Possums Early Years has had a strong history in the Mundaring community for more than 40 years. It was previously run under another not for profit organisation and in 2019, the parents, staff and community felt it would be best served to be run by an independent association whose sole focus was happy and supported children.
This is achieved by full reinvestment back into the centre for new education materials and programs as well as empowering staff to initiate developmental programs to make Little Possums Early Years even more highly regarded within the Perth Hills community for daycare and the 3 year old pre-kindy programme.
We welcome our members to attend our meetings to get involved and stay up to date with what is happening with our centre and your children.
- General Meetings are held on the 5th Thursday of each Term.
- Our AGM is held on the 5th Thursday of Term 3
Little Possums Daycare Inc (LPDI)
Our daycare is run by the not for profit organisation Little Possums Daycare Inc which was incorporated on 22nd November 2018.
Our volunteer committee is made up of passionate parents, members of the community and staff to ensure the success of Little Possums Early Years.
This dedicated bunch of people are committed to providing the very best environment for your children.
We welcome parents & community input via association membership and opportunities to join our committee to make a real impact.
