West Pennant Hills Childcare Centre

Conveniently situated close to community shopping and local schools, our purpose-built West Pennant Hills Early Learning Centre features state-of-the-art facilities designed to encourage a lifelong love of learning.

Featuring a split-level design which accommodates separate spaces for a range of different learning experiences in small groups, we use customised learning areas which invite children to explore and develop their cognitive and social skills.

Our professional educators guide children through planned learning experiences such as the Smiling Minds yoga program. As well as fortnightly excursions as part of our ‘Out and About’ initiative, while still allowing plenty of time for imaginative play.

The expert in-house cook provides five healthy meals each day, as well as coordinating regular interactive cooking classes with the children teaching them the foundations of nutrition.

Children up to age three participate are taught through our signature Evolution Program, while those between three and five are prepared for kindergarten via our Transition to School Program.

All bed linen, nappies and wipes are included, and safe and secure drop-off and pick-up points are available in the underground carpark.

CENTRE MANAGER
Vika Latu

Vika has been working in early childhood for just over 3 years and has learnt and progressed quickly in her career. She has always had a passion for caring for children that was first developed at home with her family. 

“My passion for children, and helping children learn and grow first came from home and helping raise my younger siblings. Helping raise my siblings has allowed me to bring that family feel into the centre, providing stability and calm for the children and families that join the centre.

Our centre is in an ideal spot for local families, not only close to home but surrounded by the community and local schools, assisting children that are transitioning to school as we collaborate with school visits. Having passionate educators who show genuine care and excitement for the children is something that shines through in our service and is also recognised by their families. Being able to assist our children to reach their milestones is the greatest reward for my team.”

WHAT OUR FAMILIES
HAVE TO SAY
I have only the highest praises for Young Academics West Pennant Hills. My children absolutely love it there. The staff are exceptional and really care about the children they are entrusted with. Their communication with parents is great!The seasonal menu they provide is lovely and it has helped my children learn to love new foods. The facilities are fantastic, well maintained and in good working order.When my children first started I did have concerns about the 'indoor/outdoor' garden play space, but my concerns quickly vanished when I saw the wonderfully large open skylights that allow the sunshine and fresh air to come into the space. The 'indoor/outdoor' garden has been especially useful during the last few months of incessant rain. The children at YA have been able to go and play in the garden area even on the rainy days, where children at other centers have not been able to use their 'garden space'.I highly recommend Young Academics West Pennant Hills to any parent looking for childcare for their child/children!

We are so happy with this facility. They are like a family to us and create so many special memories for my little boy (2.5).And when I mentioned are they doing painting today, as it was my husbands birthday and I had not organised a present, they changed the plans for the day so our son could do a beautiful painting for his Dad, and included a A4 size photo of father and son together.They notice the boy’s obsession with Spider-Man and create activities around this obsession.We love the outstanding educators and centre manager, Bree, for all the special touches they do for our little boy.

We have been with the centre for a year now and love it. The staff are warm, loving and attentive towards my son. He is engaged, never bored due to their rotating schedule of activities and special themes, and the staff honestly put in a lot of time and effort to make the kids happy.The centre is clean, well maintained and colourful. You always hear happy kid sounds when you pick up or drop off your child. There is an onsite chef and my son has enjoyed her nutritious meals.I'd strongly recommend it - plus an added bonus for pp with active kids like mine, an indoor playground means they can play no matter the weather and have protection from the sun.

I cannot praise the team at YA enough. They are simply incredible! They go above and beyond to create fun,interactive and creative ways for the kids to play. Every day is something totally different or a different theme. They are caring, nurturing, patient and kind and we would never dream of sending our son anywhere else. They restored our hope in daycare after a terrible experience elsewhere. The entire team are full of energy and enthusiasm and can match the energy of our active 2.5 year old. The facilities are brilliant and we couldn't be happier. Our little boy is obbsessed with daycare and already has so many new friends and comes home telling us about all the fabulous things he's done. The centre communication is brilliant and the centre manager Bree is one of the nicest,most accommodating and genuinely lovely people ever. I could go on for days but i won't, if you're considering YA for your little ones, don't... get them in now it's brilliant!

Young Academics West Pennant Hills is an amazing centre. All the educators truly care about the children with safety and well-being a top priority. They take education seriously and I'm confident my 2 year old's language skills is a direct result of their program. I highly recommend this centre!

We have been sending our daughter here since she was 7 months old (now 16 months).She has had great experiences and very caring educators.YA plan activities daily that have supported our child’s development both mentally and socially. We have seen her curious nature nurtured and encouraged.She is fed incredibly well each day and you can see the menu each week is well thought out and intended to nourish.Excellent care, beautiful facilities and wonderfully managed

My daughter enrolled in this childcare since it’s opened last July. This is her 2nd childcare. She wasn’t happy with her previous one, so I was really concerned about educators. Luckily, we found this one! My daughter is really happy every time she attended the childcare and love her friends there! She talks a lot about her educators, how funny they were, what did she do etc. All the educators who works there are very professional, friendly, knowledgeable and reliable!Thank you girls!
