If there’s one thing every working mum knows, there is never enough time in the day. When you’re juggling roles as a chief carer, cook, taxi driver, cleaner and holding down a job, “me time” goes flying out the door.
That’s something we thought long and hard about when we were setting up our Greenwood Mulgrave centre. How can we make life easier for our families?
And the solution was right under our own roof. By happy coincidence, the community of businesses at our 9 Miles Street premises includes a gym, a café and a hairdresser – all of life’s essentials for mums and dads who realise that even with children you still need to look after yourself.
With that kind of convenience, and our early 6.30am opening time, it’s easy to fit in a power workout at the ground floor gym, enjoy a relaxed and healthy breakfast at Kitchen Bar Café, or grab one of their famous mixed berry and coconut muffins to munch on the run. And if you’re needing to smarten up for a business meet or the special other in your life, White Ivy Hair Studios has blow driers at the ready.
Even with Melbourne’s horror commuting times you can be in the office on time, looking and feeling fabulous. And if you work in the Mulgrave Business Centre, as many of our mums and dads do, you’re already one step ahead. In fact, Kitchen Bar is a great place to schedule your first meeting of the day, with an all-day breakfast menu and opening hours from 7 till 3.
Our flexible fee structure and operating hours from 6.30am to 6.30pm, mean that you don’t have to be an early bird to make the most of our one-stop convenience. It’s up to you and what works best for your job and family.
You can take heart that while you are taking some well-deserved time to maintain your health and wellbeing, your most precious possession is receiving the best care possible.
Our Greenwood Mulgrave educators and early childhood teachers are highly qualified and have many years of experience. In fact, amongst our team we have four masters degrees and two bachelor degrees. Even our chef holds a degree in hospitality.
Another thing you’ll love about our centre is the huge 1000-sqm outdoor play area which includes a cubby house, slide, sandpit, waterplay area and a vegetable and herb garden. That’s equivalent to two and a half times the size of the average Melbourne block.
There’s also a technology and sensory processing room with interactive whiteboards, touch tables, and Beebots, a fun device that provides age appropriate introduction to coding. But it’s not all high tech – children are also encouraged to learn the fundamentals of numeracy, adding and subtracting, on an abacus.
Nappies, wipes and bedding are all included and there’s nothing you need to bring except your child and your best self.
