Clublinks is excited to announce a partnership with local community organisation Bridge Darebin to deliver the childcare services at the venue. Bridge Darebin have been a local licensed childcare provider for over 23 years.

There will be a delay in commencing our childcare services at NARC due to securing the necessary licensing approvals.

In working with Bridge Darebin, the safety and well-being of children are our top priorities, and we want to ensure that our facility complies with all regulatory requirements before we open the service doors.

We will update members soon on the opening date of the service. However once approved, Childcare will operate at NARC on Tuesdays and Thursdays initially with four sessions each day, commencing from 9:05 am and aligned to group fitness classes throughout the mornings.

Yes, the Clublinks ‘Swim Bright” program operates from NARC. The program is available for members of the community of all ages and abilities from opening.

Swim Bright will also include non-competitive squad programs for teens and adults.
