Tuggeranong Uniting has managed two community child care centres for over the past thirty years. Our aim has been to facilitate the highest standard of care, quality programming, and a nurturing and inclusive environment. The centres strive to complement the home environment to help children grow and develop to their potential.

Child Care Management 

A recent development has been the devolution of management to Uniting Early Learning, the umbrella organisation of the Uniting Church that oversees aged care, children's services, disability services, community care, and chaplaincy. Uniting is deeply involved in social justice and advocacy of issues that impact the people we serve. The congregation's ongoing involvement will be focussed on pastoral support for the leaders, children and families of the centres.

Bunyarra and Salem

These services were developed when Tuggeranong was a "nappy valley" and demand for quality affordable care was high. While the demographics have changed, demand is still high and the centres continue to provide an exceptional level of care, with nourishing meals and a caring staff and constructive developmental programs.

Our Names

Bunyarra is an Aboriginal word meaning "sweet". Salem derives its name from Jesus' visit to a village, Salem, where the mothers of the village brought their children to him for a blessing. Jesus valued children where others wanted them "out of sight", and told the crowd not to hinder them "for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these". (Matthew 19: 13-15)

About Our Church

Our faith community began in 1975 as a small ecumenical gathering of people who settled in the new Canberra township of Tuggeranong. We have grown with the Tuggeranong Community, and our parish centre is the hub for our work, as a place of worship, of gathering and ministry.

We aim to help people have life to the full. We welcome people into a our Christian community where they can connect with God, with one another and with opportunities to make a difference in our changing world.
