Cuddles Childcare Group started from a small centre with an occupancy size of 35 places in 1995 by Gerard Carver. Like many migrants, he moved his family from Mauritius to Western Australia in 1981 to offer his children opportunities they could not have at home.
His passion and dedication to the early years saw Cuddles’ humble beginnings grow into a medium sized chain of family friendly centres across the Perth metropolitan area that understands the needs of today’s growing family.
Presently, Cuddles Childcare Group is a proudly family owned and operated business that is built on family values and lead by Cliff Carver, son of Gerard Carver.
We are committed to providing a positive and supportive environment for our families, staff and the communities we are in.
We are committed to providing an accessible, inclusive and flexible play-based learning environment for children of diverse backgrounds. We pride ourselves in being responsive to the needs of children, families and the community.
Our programs are developed based on each child’s individual development as well as the current interests of the group or an individual child. As a centre with families of diverse cultural backgrounds, programs also reflect the different cultures of these families, inculcating in children an appreciation of the different cultures in Australia.
We aim to provide an environment where children, through play-based experiences can learn to:
• Treat others with respect and empathy
• Care for their environment
• Collaborate and contribute towards a common goal
• Communicate and listen effectively
• Think independently and confidently
• Be a strong community
