Normanhurst Child Care Centre is a licensed multicultural Centre catering for up to 48 children aged 0-5 years. We provide a welcoming, safe and stimulating environment where children can become active learners, exploring and learning through a wide variety of experiences and activities each day.
We provide a varied program for all children based on the children’s interests, observations and family input. The Centre’s program incorporates the Emergent Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework. At our Centre we encourage family input into the program and believe in creating a strong link between the home and the Centre. All staff attend regular training and seminars to ensure they are up-to- date with current early childhood practices and information. The Centre has been assessed under the current National Quality Standards.
We have 3 classrooms in the Centre - Possum Room (0-2 years), Koala Room (2-3 years) and the Emu Room (3-5 years) and each class is run by experienced and qualified Early Childhood Educators.
The children are provided with a nutritionally balanced menu prepared at the Centre each day by a qualified cook.
Please call to make an appointment to come in, meet us and see our Centre.

The indoor learning environment for this age group is a stimulating environment with room for children to explore at their own pace.

Spaces within the room reflect children’s interests and are responsive to their abilities, catering for different learning capacities. Children’s developing social needs are supported through music and movement experiences. Children learn the skills needed to care, share, collaborate and use their emotions in a positive way.
FOR PRESCHOOLERS 3-5 YEARS
This classroom caters for up to 20 children aged between 3 – 5 years of age per day. There are 2 main educators in the room each day.
The learning environment is bright and welcoming, arranged to invite and encourage varied forms of play and learning throughout the day. We encourage learning through immersion with innovative and interesting forms of literacy and numeracy experiences embedded within the curriculum to develop the children’s skills at a level that is developmentally appropriate for them.
The program is designed to ensure that children are interested in learning by planning learning around children’s interests so they are engaged to explore, investigate and learn. These experiences give ownership to children and encourage their problem solving and decision-making skills.
