Welcome to Pachamama
Pachamama welcomes you and your family to our two early education and childcare services. Located in the beautiful Perth Hills, our unique learning environments focus on nature, creativity and sustainability. At Pachamama, diversity is more than a matter of compliance – it is a way of life. Our team of highly experienced Educators are almost as diverse as the United Nations! We incorporate cross-cultural learning experiences into our learning experiences every day.
Our fundamental aim is to be a home-away-from-home – a place for children to learn life skills and form trusting relationships. A place for them to connect with nature, each other and themselves. 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 – of being nature herself. The figure of the ‘Virgin Mary’ became united with that of ‘Pachamama’ for many of the indigenous people following the regions conquest by Spain which forced conversion to Roman Catholicism.
‘Pachamama’ is usually translated as Mother Earth, although a more literal translation is ‘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. It is this viewpoint for which aim to achieve in our daily interactions with our Pachamama children. We encourage all families to visit our centre regularly – to experience our relaxing atmosphere, and to meet and engage with our Educators. We aim to support you, and work with you, in your most important challenge of raising your children.
