Canterbury Childcare Centre

Located in the heart of Sydney’s Inner West, a short walk from the local train station and primary school, our Canterbury Early Learning Centre delivers an engaging, educational experience in a stimulating environment designed to enrich the development of children from six weeks to six years old.

Each spacious room features carefully selected resources and learning spaces to encourage play, social interaction, and physical and cognitive development – all while having fun.

The generous outdoor zones invite children to explore the outdoor learning environment, as well as providing plenty of space to play sports and games and take part in learning experiences inspired by nature.

Children benefit from a combination of planned learning experiences, time to use their imagination, and build upon their individual interests. Popular features in the outdoor learning environment include a rock-climbing wall to help develop coordination, three large sandpits for sensory play, and a bike track allowing children to build their gross motor skills.

Children up to age three participate in the tailored Evolution Program, while those between three and five join the Transition to School Program.

A menu of five tasty, nutritious meals and snacks prepared by our in-house cook is included daily, and children look forward to enjoying mealtimes with their friends and educators.

All bed linen, nappies and wipes are provided.

The educators at Young Academics are the most caring, kind and intuitive people that you could ever hope to take care of your child. My daughter started daycare when she was 10 months old, and over the last almost two years has grown into the confident, chatty little girl that she is now with the help of the staff. They really took the time to get to know her and provide her with the tools she needed to come out of her shell.The staff know all the children by name even if they aren't in that educator's room, and go above and beyond to make sure that each child feels valued.With all the daycare horror stories out there, I feel so lucky that we found Young Academics Canterbury - a place where I truly trust that the educators put the children and their wellbeing first.

If I could give this childcare 10 stars I would! It is an amazing place when my children don’t ever want to leave at pick up. I love that they feel as though it is their home away from home.

We are really satisfied with our child's overall growth here. We have seen immense improvement in her as we had really bad experience from another child care. And it was very tough for us to trust a new 1. But we are so happy that putting our child in Young Academics was our best decision..I must say all the educators of young academics are so nice ,humble and professional, especially Ms Louisa and Ms Vanita they both really helped our child to settle in the centre in every way. A big shout out to the whole staff of Young Academics.. 👍

This childcare is very loud, I don't recommend living in this building at all. Be aware. Neighbours slam their doors at 6am, there's domestic violence just beside my apartment.

Young Academics Canterbury has really helped in supporting my twin children’s growth and development in the nursery. Staff have been so comforting in keeping me posted with updates and how their day is going in regards to sleep time, feeding and activities they participate in. The centre manager is very approachable and professional in her position. Would definitely recommend to any mother who’s going back to work and needs a refreshing and educational place to keep their child!

Over the past few years, I have attempted to get my child into a centre that could benefit his growth and development. My experiences haven’t been the greatest, but just a few months ago, I stumbled across young academics Canterbury and I must say, it was the greatest decision I could make for my child’s future. The environment in the centre is very warm, approachable and friendly. The centre manager took me and my family on an explicit tour around the centre, ensuring I understood every aspect that my son will experience during his stay here. The education program was easy to understand and showed a lot of consistency. The educators are very welcoming every morning and have made my son so excited and eager to get to class everyday! During dinner time, my son is so happy to share his learning experiences, arts and crafts and the new letters/Numbers he’s learnt for the week. He also loves to share with me the yummy and nutritious food he’s had that day. Communication is key for me, as I struggled to accept going back to work and leaving my child in the care of others, however the constant updates during the day and the ability to call whenever I feel the need to has been a reassuring and calming experience for me and my family. This centre is definitely a hit for my family and I and I would no doubt, recommend it to my friends and family.

Sending your first born child to childcare can be really difficult but all the girls at Young Academics in Canterbury have made it so easy for me! I know that when I drop my daughter off she is in very good hands. They genuinely care for the children and take the time to really get to know them. Apart from providing a safe and happy place for all children, they also provide a diverse learning curriculum that caters to all young individuals! Young Academics Canterbury is a fantastic centre that really does provide a ‘home away from home’!! Girls, I can’t thank you enough for helping my little girl come out of her shell!Despina

YA Canterbury is an amazing centre. The children get to experience different things, from arts and crafts to simple exercises to preparing and making pancakes. The colourful outdoor play area with the sandpit and cubby house is a big plus. And the staff are wonderful to the kids. This centre is highly recommended

Our daughter absolutely loves her daycare day's. She gets so excited and is upset if I'm running late. They have a great app called KinderloopPlus which allows them to send photo's and little stories of what our daughter is up to throughout the day. We are so glad we chose this Centre and I bet you will love it too!

The Canterbury centre is fantastic! The set up and design of the facility is excellent and the outside play area is kid heaven! The staff led by Ivana are amazing - friendly, helpful and super engaged. They take the time to get to know you, your child and your normal routine and try follow it as much as possible. They really go the extra mile to help your child settle in and it's awesome when you can leave knowing your child is in excellent hands and is going to have a great day! Also Sarah in enrollments is an absolute legend she makes the whole process a breeze!!
