The Ponds Childcare Centre

At our The Ponds Early Learning Centre in Rouse Hill, North-West Sydney, we are committed to providing a nurturing and enriching environment for your child’s early development. Our centre offers top-quality childcare services, ensuring a strong foundation for your child’s growth and education.

Located in a lovely residential area close to local schools and Rouse Hill Shopping Centre, The Ponds Early Learning Centre offers diverse learning experiences and nurturing care for children from six weeks to six years old.

Our childcare centre in The Ponds joins our other centres like our Rouse Hill childcare, our Kellyville Redden Drive daycare and our Adelphi Street daycare service in North Rouse Hill. 

Designed to cater for the unique needs, interests and abilities of every individual child, the centre’s passionate educators balance planned learning experiences with time for unhurried, uninterrupted play and learning.

In the light-filled indoor learning environment, a wide range of resources and equipment provides a safe, stimulating space for learning across a range of learning areas dedicated to experiences including art, music, dramatic play, science, numeracy and literacy.

Boasting plenty of space to stretch their wings and engage in imaginative play, exploration and problem-solving, the outdoor learning environment includes a sandpit, bike track and garden area where children can interact with their peers, enhance their gross motor skills and coordination, and discover nature.

On Fridays, children take part in MasterChef cooking experiences, which teaches them about healthy eating, while our in-house cook prepares five nutritious meals for them to enjoy with their peers and educators daily.

Children up to age three take part in our signature Evolution Program, while those between three and five progress to our Transition to School Program.

All nappies and wipes are included. Cot linen provided (excludes stretcher bed linen).
