Over 300 people call Yarralin home, including people from the Ngarinyman, Mudbarra, Bilinara and Gurindji tribes. It is a small, vibrant and closely-knit community 730 kilometres south of Darwin.

Our service, fondly known as the crèche is a place where visitors are welcomed with a smile. The building has a large central area for mixed-age grouping, with a pitched roof that draws in light and creates an airy, natural atmosphere. The central area of the service is adjoined by a high-grade kitchen and all of the facilities needed to ensure children are safe and well cared for.

Our approach

Yarralin Children’s Service actively seeks to embed Aboriginal perspectives in programming and planning. Our approach is child-centred, while demonstrating deep respect for the culture and traditions of our local staff, families and community elders. Our practices and principles are also in-line with the Reggio Emilia philosophy, which has strong roots in nature and focuses on a learning environment enriched with creative and sensory experiences.

Our services

We are a 25-place Children’s Service catering for children from 0 to 6 years.

Our dedicated director and service staff also run the Yarralin School Nutrition Programme on behalf of the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA).

Our kitchen staff serve breakfast, morning tea and lunch as part of the school nutrition program which is delivered at the Yarralin School to around 40 school-aged children.
