About this opportunity

The East Fremantle Lawn Tennis Club is a non-profit community-oriented Club with a wonderful facility, and a great sense of community amongst the members, visitors, staff and volunteers.

We operate a Crèche, in the Tennis Club clubrooms, using a paid Creche Manager to supervise children while their parents play organised social tennis. Depending on the number and age distribution of the children under our care, additional assistant supervisors are required from time-to-time to ensure appropriate ratios of carers to children is maintained.

The Mums & Bubs Crèche Monday morning project is specifically geared to new mothers (with pre-school children) providing the opportunity to participate in physical activity, break from routine and engage in social connectedness, all while the children are cared for in a safe, enjoyable and affordable environment.
