The facility was purpose built for child care, creating spacious and vibrant environments with real grass, trees, vegetable gardens and flower beds.

We offer places for children from birth to 5 years, we only serve nutritious home-style food and we pride ourselves on offering extremely affordable fees. We have a central meeting place where all children come together to share their meals – we call it our “Piazza” – meaning a place to meet.

The centre is a member of Remida; a creative reuse centre that supplies recyclable materials to services for children to be creative with and learn about sustainability.

Centre Director: Caitlin

Hi there! My name is Caitlin Rechichi and I am the Centre Director at YMCA Bunbury Early Learning Centre.

I have been involved with the childcare and early learning industry for over 9 years, accompanied by a Certificate III and Diploma in Children's Services. I have always been with YMCA Early Learning Centre's, having started at the centre in a traineeship work placement. 

In my time at YMCA Bunbury I have enjoyed the family feel the centre provides. I feel a real sense of support from the community, and the educators and I are very close and work hard to bring the best for every child at the centre. I most enjoy when our staff and children come together in the dining room for meal time and socialising, surrounded by natural light and lots of windows. It feels like home to us!

The most rewarding part of my role is the special bonds I make with the families, knowing myself and the team are here to help make a difference.

I look forward to welcoming you and your family to Bunbury Early Learning Centre.


  • I am thoroughly impressed with all aspects of child care provided at YMCA Bunbury and leave knowing the child I have placed in their care is safe, secure and most of all happy.
  • The staff at YMCA Bunbury are amazing. My son is absolutely thriving and he learns so much every day. We would highly recommend YMCA Bunbury for any parent looking for day care.
