Disposable nappies take 300-500 years to decompose in landfill. Cloth nappies reduce your service’s environmental footprint and your waste disposal costs.
Early Years Learning Framework for Australia
Meet Learning Outcome 2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world. We will provide you with doll nappies so you can incorporate cloth nappies into your curriculum, providing the children with access to natural materials rather than single use plastics. This will develop their awareness of the impact of human activity on the environment.

Frequently Asked Questions
What training and support is provided to Childcare Centres?
Prior to commencing use of your MCNs, your Nappy Service Relationship Manager will work with you to set up your business processes to enable success. On-site training will be provided on a weekly basis for up to four weeks from commencement of your service. If you have any issues after this time, just give us a call or email. We can also conduct additional site visits upon request.
Is Conder House enviromentally friendly?
Every business has an environmental footprint. We have processes in place that reduce it as much as possible. We only use bio-degradable chemicals and we have a solar system that is large enough to provide all of our daytime electricity usage. We also provide linen bags and nappy pail liners to clients to reduce the use of plastic bags.
What standard do you wash to?
Our operations are in accordance with Australian and New Zealand standards for Laundry Practice (AS/NZS 4146:2000).
Do MCNs fit in with nappy changing policy?
Fortunately MCN use in childcare centres aligns perfectly! MCNs need to be changed every two hours, which is consistent with childcare centre policies. In fact, you’ll find that the MCN processes put in place helps to reinforce adherence to your policy as it’s very obvious when a MCN has been left on too long! Your Nappy Service Relationship Manager will work with you to adjust your routine to meet your policies.
How do you change the opinion of parents that think cloth nappies are unhygienic?
We find that in most cases education is the key. Once families understand that the nappies are being provided by a company that washes to hospital grade standards, they usually come on board. We will work with your centre to educate families on the process. Unfortunately though, there are some families that you just can’t convince.
Our Laundry Service caters to clients who want to use their own linen or simply need their clothes washed.
Our Linen Service offers a range of quality bedroom and bathroom linen.
Let our staff iron your garments to give it that freshly ironed, perfect finish with our Ironing Services.
Couldn’t recommend more highly! Wonderful service, have managed everything my household of 7 has thrown at them, and with a smile too. If you are thinking about using Conder House, don’t hesitate!
Started using Conder laundry & linen service a few weeks ago. I use the cloth nappies and couldn’t be more pleased! The nappies are easy to use soft around my 3 month olds legs and tummy. Keeps him almost 100% dry as the material keeps the liquid away from his skin. Never had any leaks and can’t believe how easy it is, I don’t need to do anything nappies are dropped off and used ones are picked up. Would definitely recommend!
I found the cleaned nappies really clean. I couldn’t have done it to that level myself and honestly trying to even wash nappies along with everything else i tried to keep running in first 6 weeks would have driven me mad… the cleaning service is the god send of this product offer.
