Who We Are

We are a small not-for-profit Long Day Care and Preschool that has been operating in Surry Hills for many years. Just one of the children’s services that is provided by Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre to the local community, we are proud to be a part of the organisation that has been operating in Surry Hills for over 40 years promoting social justice.

We aim to provide high quality child care services to all families and children in the area, inclusive of all cultural backgrounds, religions, family income or ability.

With newly built premises we are able to boast Sydney’s most environmentally friendly child care facility equipped with shaded play space open to the sky and an outstanding security system.

Operating 50 weeks of the year, closing for two weeks in December/January and on public holidays, we are licensed for 26 children per session (usually up to 10 babies – 6 months to 2 years and 16 toddlers/pre-schoolers – 2 to 5 years).

Our Centre is governed by a volunteer governance board who are committed to ensuring that the service adheres to the highest standards of children’s services provision and operates in a just and ethical manner. Being a not-for-profit organisation means that all proceeds go back into the Centre to improve our facilities and provide additional, ongoing training for our professional child educators.

Should you require any information regarding other services undertaken by the Centre or issues of concern to families in the area, please contact the Centre Manager Gillian Elliott on 9356 4977.
