About Us

Sutherland Child Care Centre is open 5 days per week from 7:00am to 6:00pm (excluding public holidays). The Centre was established in November 2015 to meet the child care needs of the families in the Sutherland Shire. Our Centre consists of 2 rooms, 2-3 year olds and 3-6 year olds. Children are encouraged to experiment and learn through play based activities in a home like environment. All the rooms open out to an outdoor area with a garden, sandpit, soft fall area for climbing equipment, quiet areas and a garden area for the children to grow their choice of vegies, fruit, herbs and various plants. We believe in providing a healthy and nutritious meal for every child and our chef cooks all meals from scratch in the Centre kitchen with fresh ingredients bought from local quality grocers. The Centre is fully air conditioned and sustainability is also embedded into Centre’s culture. We use solar energy and children are encouraged to assist with turning lights off when not in the room. Daily diaries are emailed to families daily outlining children’s learning experiences.
