Welcome to Pachamama Early Education & Childcare

Pachamama welcomes you to our two centres of early education and childcare, steeped in the nature of the beautiful Perth hills. Our fundamental aim is to be a home-away-from-home for children - a place for them to learn life skills and form trusting relationships. A place for them to experience a sense of belonging within themselves, with others and through nature.

A place for them to grow and expand their horizons and interests. 'Pachamama' is a goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. In Inca mythology, 'Pachamama' is a fertility goddess, a creative power to sustain life on this earth. 'Pachamama' is perceived as being benevolent and giving - she is also seen as being nature itself. The figure of the 'Virgin Mary' became united with that of 'Pachamama' for many of the indigenous people following the regions conquest by Spain, forcing conversion to Roman Catholicism. 'Pachamama' is usually translated as Mother Earth, but a more literal translation would be 'World Mother.' Since there is no equal diction in modern Spanish or English, it was translated by the first Spaniard Colonists as mama (mother) and pacha (world or land) and later widened in a modern meaning as the cosmos or the universe.

Pachamama' is used in a manner synonymous with the warmth and love shared between a mother and a child and it is this perspective that we aim to achieve in our daily interactions with the children of our Pachamama family. We encourage all families to visit our centre regularly – to experience our relaxing and positive atmosphere, and to meet and engage with our Educators. We aim to support you, and work together with you, in your most important challenge of raising your children.

Some kind words about us...

As someone looking to pursue a career in teaching, I'm so encouraged to find there are centres like this one. I don't have children, but I've been one, and I can say wholeheartedly that I'll be happy to pursue a career in education if there are places like this to work with. Thank you for everything you're doing.
