Childcare Placement

In partnership with Adult Migrant Education Services (AMES), YWCA Victoria assists eligible newly arrived immigrant and refugee families find suitable childcare while they attend AMEP English language classes.

Every term, YWCA Victoria receives approximately 500 requests for childcare from 25 AMES language centres. YWCA Victoria contacts the newly arrived migrant family and arranges a childcare place in the most appropriate childcare service, either close to home or close to the AMES language centre.  

A range of different childcare services are provided, depending on availability. These include family day care, long day care, half day care, occasional care and kindergarten. This childcare is provided at no cost to eligible families.

New clients should contact AMES Australia on 132637 to discuss eligibility for the program.
