The Caretaker’s Cottage Childcare Centre at the Australian Institute of Sport offers permanent care for children under school age. The service is available to parents employed by the Australian Sports Commission and National Sporting Organisation staff and athletes who reside permanently on site. Unfortunately the Cottage no longer accepts waiting list applications from the general public.

The centre is situated adjacent to the Australian Institute of Sport track and field facilities.
