Book a Preschool Tour

We encourage families who need care to tour our centre either in-person or via video call.

Following advice from NSW Health, all families across all of NSW are “strongly encouraged to keep their children at home, unless they need to be at those services“.

We continue to provide care and offer tours for families that need care under the guidelines of NSW Health, NSW Government, NSW Department of Education, and the NSW Early Childhood and Care Directorate. We will update our procedures to reflect any new COVID-19 advice from the above authorities.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we ask that only one adult attends the preschool with children for tours at this time, please make additional bookings if you have a partner or friend who would also like to view the preschool. Thank you for understanding.

Tours will be with our Preschool Director, Kirsty Parker who will answer any questions about our philosophy, food and curriculum.

Our address is: 40 Nelson Street, Barnsley NSW 2278

“I loved that there were so many gorgeous and inviting play spaces for kids to play in throughout the entire preschool”

“Your centre is really beautiful and all your staff made us feel so welcomed. We all had a ball, including our young one which was so nice to see.”

We are a small day care centre with sustainability at the heart of our mission, teaching children environmentally friendly and regenerative routines as they engage in our play-based, child-directed curriculum. We encourage nature play and connection with gardening and cooking classes (with garden produce) as well as invite them to spend time outdoors in our bush kindy program and large outdoor nature areas at the centre. Meals and snacks are included in our daily fees and follow a nutritious, colorful, dietitian approved plant-based menu.
