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.
