Welcome to Pachamama

Pachamama offers unique early education and childcare.  Located in the beautiful Perth Hills of Western Australia, Pachamama is a home-away-from-home focused on nature, creativity and diversity.   

And, at Pachamama, diversity is more than just compliance – it’s a way of life.  Our team of highly experienced Educators are almost as diverse as the United Nations.  Our cross-cultural environments, teams, and learning experiences are part of our everyday life at Pachamama.  We are a home-away-from-home; a place for children to learn life skills and form trusting relationships with their friends and Educators.  A place for them to connect with nature, each other and themselves.  A place for all children to grow and expand their horizons and interests.

What does Pachamama mean?  ‘Pachamama’ is a ancient Incan goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes.  In Incan mythology, she signifies fertility and abundance – a creative power to sustain life on this earth.

Pachamama is synonymous with Mother Earth, although a more literal translation is ‘World Mother.’   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 perceived as being benevolent and giving – of being nature herself.   For many indigenous people of the region, the Virgin Mary became united with Pachamama for many indigenous people following the region’s conquest by Spain in the 16th century resulting in forced conversion to Roman Catholicism.

The concept of Pachamama is often used to represent the warmth and love shared between a mother and a child.  We aim to achieve this in our daily interactions with our Pachamama children.

We aim to support and work with families in the most important challenge of raising children. All families are encouraged to get to know our amazing Educators and experience our beautiful environment.

Pachamama is very unique and they have a wonderful philosophy. The whole layout is set up with natural elements which makes this centre so homely. All staff (admins, kitchen staff, educators) are very friendly, and helpful. Especially the Junior Kindy educators as well as the Toddler educators are doing an awesome job. From day one we felt very welcomed and the educators are doing an exceptional job! Our son loves being there and never wants to leave when we pick him up. We have been lucky to find such a beautiful centre and won’t go anywhere else.

I love my job! I absolutely love being with the kids - sitting with them, listening to them, watching them do the cutest things and most of all showing them love and letting them know how precious they are, and helping them learn and develop in every way. I love working with warm, collaborative, friendly and helpful staff which make you feel like a part of a family. I also love being among nature and playing with the kids outdoors. I love just about every part of my job, even the challenging times because they teach you more patience, understanding, strategies and experiences. The children are an absolute delight to be with, and I really enjoy nurturing them. It gives my life great purpose and happiness. I have worked at Pachamama consistently for nearly 6 years now and worked in every room and have seen so many of the children grow up through to kindy age, and it's so good to be a part of that and seeing them develop. I can't imagine working at any better place. I really feel so blessed and happy to be taking care of the children at Pachamama. Living in the local area, I see some of the children and their families while I'm out and about, and it's such a thrill when they wave to you so happily. I look forward to working with the children and their families, and my co-workers everyday at Pachamama. �����

I did a 3 hour round trip just to have the opportunity to visit this centre that I've heard so much about and it did not disappoint one bit. What an absolutely amazing place for young ones to explore. The possibilities are endless and the vision they have for the new extension is simply astonishing. The staff were all so friendly, I just wish I was young again and could attend there. Simply amazing!

We all know how important it is for children (and staff, too !) to be stimulated and challenged in a positive way in a loving environment... The management of Pachamama is truly committed to this mantra. I highly recommend you all to visit this community and see for yourselves - and feel the heart warming atmosphere of this amazing place.

I’ve been working at Pachamama for over a year now and I love it! The educators are so friendly and are amazing at their jobs. The natural play spaces are so exciting and the children are just wonderful. I’m so privileged to be a part of the Pachamama team. I highly recommend Pachamama to any educators looking for employment and to any families looking for quality childcare. �

Pachamama is a gorgeous environment that's perfect for young children to learn and enjoy a natural setting. The facilities look great from the road and even better up close. You can tell a lot of good thought and hard work has gone into developing this place. I don't have little ones myself, but if I did there is no doubt I would be sending them to Pachamama!

I went to the Educator Open House on April 1st and it was phenomenal. All the Pachamama staff were so welcoming and answered any and all questions we had openly. I left feeling truly inspired and excited to be able to work in this industry!

Very sad to see Rika leaving, she has been such a fantastic educator! My boys have been going to Pachamamas since 2014 and I must say she's been the most personal, caring, lively, passionate character I've come across. Reeve & I will miss you dearly �

Pachamama is such a wonderful place, all of the staff who have looked after my little boys have been so warm and caring, Harry has loved the activities Rika and the team have done with him and always talks about "school" it's truly like a home away from home � Thank you so much for all your hard work and effort you put in to making the kids settle in and enjoy their time there

There isn't any morning that I wake up and don't want to go into work. I absolutely love my new job in Pachamama. The staff are so friendly and it's simply a great place to work. As a high school teacher it's a little bit of a different environment for me but I was a nanny for 8 years and dearly just love working with children no matter what age they are. Thanks Pachamama xx
