Welcome to PLAYBASE!
Playbase was formed in 2010 with the aim of providing both a quality and rewarding childcare experience for the local community. Drawing on valuable experience and knowledge of the school aged care field, Playbase will continue to endeavour, grow and develop into one of the region’s most valued and respected services.
Playbase is owned and operated by Adam Spaleta, who has over 10 years experience in organising holiday and sports programs. We believe our service is both unique and high quality, having catered for thousands of children in the Canberra/Queanbeyan district over many years. Promoting aspects of respect, tolerance, good sportsmanship, getting fit, skill development, building friendships and having fun are integral of the Playbase Philosophy.
