Welcome to Pachamama
Pachamama welcomes you to our two early education and childcare services in Western Australia. Located in the beautiful Perth Hills, our unique learning environments focus on nature, creativity and sustainability.
And, 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 every day activities.
Our fundamental aim is to be a home-away-from-home. A place for children to learn life skills and form trusting relationships with both their friends and our 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.
‘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 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 in the 16th century forcing conversion to Roman Catholicism.
Pachamama is synonymous with Mother Earth, although a more literal translation is ‘World Mother.’ Although 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.
The concept of Pachamama is often used to represent the warmth and love shared between a mother and a child. It is this concept we aim to achieve in our daily interactions with our Pachamama children. We encourage all families to visit and experience our relaxing atmosphere and engage with our Educators.
We aim to support you and work with you in your most important challenge of raising your children.

Head Teacher Joseph,
My granddaughter has to be teased away from after school care because she loves it so much..the staff are awesome, they are totally dedicated to the happiness and safety of the children, every parents dream.
Lesmurdie and surrounding areas are so lucky to have Pachamama, I know our family feel blessed.!
This place is so amazing and is above and beyond any other Childcare I have ever seen. ( and I have been in childcare for over 20 years)
I was absolutely astounded by the exceptional facilities.
This centre is really something special.
It's so obvious that the staff and the owners go above and beyond to provide there families with the very best of educational experiences.
As I walked around I chatted with a lot of the staff and they were so approachable and so nice, and I felt like they really are so proud of there centre And that they really love what they do. I also spoke to the owner of the centre, she was also so lovely and so knowledgable and I really felt she was so passionate about the centre and I could see she goes above and beyond the provide the families with an phenomenal service.
If you are looking for childcare in the Lesmurdie area I would definitely consider Pachamumma. There isn't any other daycare in Perth that has what these guys offer. This would be by far the most exceptional daycare in Perth. �
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. �
"Every child needs to be loved and cared for every day".
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 would also like to commend the work Lindi does, she goes above and beyond to assist the children. Their special Lego models are saved or photographed and she understands, listens to and appreciates every child that attends the centre. Lindi also has a wonderful way with the parents, she knows our names and has individual chats with us all. She has delivered my son’s water bottle to his classroom the next morning, after he has left it at Pachamama, washed and with fresh water (on several occasions). He once lost a precious picture at your centre and Lindi went back and found it and this was also delivered to his classroom the next morning. She delivers the children in the mornings and carries out all the roles their parents would do if they were there. She does their banking, changes their reading books and sits and waits and ensures they are happy in their classrooms before leaving. The most important thing my son really appreciates is that Lindi is always there!
Thanks for all you do, our family really appreciates it.
This School in Western Australia has touched many people hearts here in Kenya and the Lord will bless you for your generosity.
