The Hobart Aquatic Centre offers occasional child minding for parents with children up to 10 years of age.

Our Child Minding service is designed for you and your child. We aim to provide a safe, happy and rewarding environment for your child whilst you enjoy the Aquatic Centre's facilities, secure in the knowledge that your child is being looked after by our friendly, professional staff. Our diverse activities and programs help promote intellectual, social and creative learning. Child Minding activities include drawing, story reading, music, songs, and toys.
