Established in 1940, The Gowrie has a long and proud history in the provision of quality early childhood education and care, and the facilitation of community services and programs that meet the needs of children, families and the community.

Originally set up as a demonstration model for excellence in childcare, Gowrie WA operates two early childhood education and care centres, employing educators that are passionately committed to building secure, trusting and strong relationships with children and families.

Gowrie WA boasts strong relationships with Lotterywest and the Department for Communities. Through the generosity of Lotterywest, Gowrie WA has recently redeveloped the Karawara Early Years Centre and in late 2013, officically opened The Gowrie WA Family and Community Centre. The Gowrie WA Family and Community Centre compliments the Gowrie WA Leeming Family and Community Centre that is operated under a funding agreement with the Department for Communities.

Implemented at the Leeming Family and Community Centre, and also behind the redevelopment of the Karawara Family and Community Centre, is a multi-faceted service model incorporating the community hub concept, providing a range of integrated services and programs for children, families and the community.

With our early childhood education and care centres, and dedicated family and community centres, Gowrie WA provides healthy and nurturing learning environments for our children, families and community.

The educators in Gowrie WAâ€TMs early childhood education and care centres are passionate about children and families. Our educators embrace the work they do each day to provide quality care and learning experiences, both of which assist in positive early brain development. Gowrie WA educators are keen learners, always striving to provide nurturing and healthy learning environments and experiences, based on their knowledge of each childâ€TMs needs and incorporating the philosophies and learning of early childhood theorists.

Gowrie WA has a reputation for quality support to children and families in the community, as well as providing stimulating and inclusive environments built on secure, trusting and strong relationships with all children and families. We strive to ensure our environments are welcoming and that the experiences children have each day at Gowrie WA, inspire them to investigate, discover, imagine and create. Our educators support and scaffold children's learning in partnership with families, reflecting centre philosophies and encompassing the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards.

Our two early childhood education and care centres are located in Lowan Loop Karawara and Paterson Road Kewdale. Please follow the links for information specific to each centre. You may wish to like us on Facebook for up to date activities at all our centres, including the Leeming and Karawara Family and Community Centres.
