Child care centre at end
FUNDING deficits will see the
Roseworthy Campus Child Care
Centre forced to close its doors for
good in December.
The centre's management committee
made the decision last week after a long
process of discussions, budget projec-
tions and consultations following the
University of Adelaide's announcement
it would cease subsidy of the centre by
Centre management committee
chair Edith Zeller said without the
university's financial support the centre
could no longer operate.
"Sadly, the very points that made
this centre so exceptional -- its limited
numbers, its secluded natural setting
and its high standard in staffing -- have
proved to be its final breaking points,"
"One can only hope that this is not
an indication of where the future of our
child care systems lies in general."
The centre has a capacity of 30 chil-
dren and is situated on University of
Adelaide grounds in Roseworthy.
It has been subsidised by the univer-
sity for more than 20 years but is run
and governed as an independent not-
for-profit organisation and open to the
Centre director Rose Muirhead said
the management committee was grate-
ful for the many years of financial sup-
port for the centre from the university
and also appreciated its support relat-
ing to the prospective closure.
"We have always prided ourselves
with high-quality care, and our staff
has been a part of many young lives
and has enjoyed the connection with
their families," she said.
"It is with great sadness we say good-
bye and wish everyone a smooth transi-
tion into their new care environment."
A University of Adelaide spokes-
person said there were currently less
than 20 full-time equivalent children
enrolled at the centre and only half of
those were children of university staff
"The University of Adelaide ac-
knowledges the decision of the Rose-
worthy Campus Child Care Centre to
close the centre at the end of the year
after much deliberation and consulta-
tion," she said.
"We are working with the centre and
our staff with young children currently
enrolled to support them as they tran-
sition to alternative care arrangements
in the new year."
The spokesperson said the univer-
sity offered a range of initiatives for
staff with young families, including
generous paid parental leave, flex-
ible work arrangements, compressed
weeks and purchased and special paid
