Located in Berowra, New South Wales, Waratah Preschool and Nursery is a centre-based early learning facility offering long daycare services for a maximum of 56 children. Located close to public transport, with easy access and parking in a natural, residential area, we are a preschool and long day care centre for children aged 0 to 6 years. Waratah Preschool and Nursery is a stalwart member of the local childcare community, having served families in Berowra and nearby for more than thirty years. From 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM, we also offer short daycare and flexible hours in our pre-schooler room for families in need. The centre is fully approved for the Australian government's Child Care Subsidy (CCS) and Additional Child Care Subsidy (ACCS) fee assistance. Services We offer three structured programs, divided by age group. Our blue room, designed for infants, caters to 8 children aged from zero to two years. Our green room, designed for toddlers, caters for 15 children aged from two to three years. Finally, our preschool room caters for 30 preschool children aged from three to six. At Waratah, we believe in individuality. We encourage children under our care to express their unique and special interests, guiding their own learning. We advocate for each child’s right to express their views and ideas in an open, comfortable, and considerate setting. As outlined by the Early Years Learning Framework, we emphasise values of belonging, being, and becoming. Community involvement plays a central role in our philosophy. We make regular use of community resources and work to build authentic relationships with families and local groups. Nutrition We encourage the children in our care to nourish their bodies and minds with wholesome food. Via our Kids Gourmet Food service, we provide nutritious meals for every child, every day. Grounds Our vibrant outdoor spaces feature a sandpit, garden, playground, and plenty of open space for children to express their curiosity. Communication Communication is crucial at Waratah Preschool and Nursery. We take family feedback seriously, believing that a child’s learning and development is shaped by family ideas, traditions, and cultures. We encourage parents and caregivers to contact our centre at any time with questions or suggestions about their child’s learning.
