Merrylands Childcare Centre

Conveniently located in a family-friendly residential area close to local primary schools, our Merrylands Early Learning Centre offers an inspiring, well-resourced learning environment for children aged six weeks to six years old.

Our Merrylands childcare centre is one of our many childcare centres in Western Sydney including our Mays Hill childcare centre, our Guildford childcare and our Westmead childcare facility. 

The seamless indoor/outdoor learning environments have been designed to stimulate children’s cognitive development, creativity and coordination skills.

Guided by a passionate team of educators, children can choose from engaging indoor learning stations, quiet zones for rest and reflection, and a dynamic outdoor learning environment, including a designated outside area for infants (0-2 years).

Children are encouraged to explore and enjoy nature in our outdoor learning environment, which includes a wide range of equipment and resources to inspire imaginative play, teamwork and gross motor skill development. Highlights include a large sandpit, cubby house, bike track, and worm farm to build their understanding of nature and sustainability.

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

The on-site cook prepares five healthy meals and snacks every day for the children to enjoy, and all nappies and wipes are included. Cot linen provided (excludes stretcher bed linen).

A car park is conveniently located outside the entrance to the centre for safe and secure drop-off and pick-up.

WHAT OUR FAMILIES
HAVE TO SAY
I appreciate all the YA Merrylands Team for the love and care towards my toddler and with keeping us up-to-date. He attends twice a week and is usually the first kid there, so mornings are a little daunting for him but Maya is always warm and welcoming which puts him at ease quickly. My partner does the late afternoon pickup and he enjoys hearing about our kid’s day from the Team (in particular from Pascale) so it’s very re-assuring that Son is in good hands. We are grateful

My daughter and son really enjoys their time at Young Academics! they look forward to it.The educators at Young Academics Merrylands centre are truly amazing. They provide a safe and freindly environment for my children. The are patient, kind and knowledgeable, and they genuinely care about the development of our children. The centre is always kept very neat, tidy and organised. I have complete trust in the educators and feel confident that my children are in a safe and secured environment.The centre uses a phone app to keep parents informed about the safety of their chiild's and regular update on daily actitvities. For a working parent like myself this is gives me the greatest peace of mind just knowing that my children are in safe hands and I have the app to track the progress and day to day activity of my children.I highly recommend this child care Centre to any parent looking for quality care for their child.

I explored around 8 childcare centers across Merrylands and its surrounding suburbs before finalizing one for my child, and I am content with my choice of selecting Young Academics Merrylands center for him. It is a centralized facility where the relevant educators are onboard. They are well-informed about my child's needs and I don't have to repeat his needs to educators separately. I believe, this efficiency of the center would not have been possible without the presence of a mindful manager, and Miss Kalpana is doing a tremendous job in this regard. She is deeply rooted and engaged with the progress of my child and she helped in making the transition smooth for him. I am beyond impressed with Miss Sandhya, Miss Michella and Miss Maya's dedication to giving my child their utmost best and because of my interaction with them and my child's happy state of mind, I am satisfied that my child is in safe and caring hands.

My son has attended the centre for over 2 years and my daughter has recently commenced.All the room leaders and teachers are lovely and truly care about your children. They work with you as the parent to determine care needs for your children and work on any problems together. There has now been consistent staffing and the centre manager and assistant centre manager have done a great job with communication around the teachers, activities, policies and regular updates.The enrolments manager who also looks after the centre is wonderful and very supportive.Even the parents and children who attend the centre are kind and personable!Would highly recommend this centre.

My son started at YA a month ago and I’m so happy with Centre. The educators are absolutely wonderful! Maya, Pascale, Rebika and the rest of the team show so much warmth, care and dedication to the children, especially with those who are new to daycare and adjusting to the transition. My son now doesn’t want to leave at pick up time! He has so much fun and loves sitting on Miss Maya’s lap! He has shown a lot of growth and development in this short time and he just loves the educators. Big thanks to you all for being so awesome and making Eli feel so welcome and at home with the YA team. Much love!

My kids have been at the this centre for the past 18 months and they love it. Every morning my son is welcomed by Miss Maya who makes him feel like he's at home. My son has unusual food allergies which had been tough for me but Miss Maya, Miss Kellee and the other educators have made sure my son is safe and Miss Kellee has transitioned him to eating with his peers, which has been amazing for my son. Small centre with amazing educators.

I have complete peace of mind when my children are with the YA team. I know they will be active, happy, eat well, sleep well and learn a lot, every day - from numbers and colours and songs to manners and how to share and respect each other. YA regularly posts photos of the children's activities on Kinderloop so we can see what they have been doing and learning. Claudia and her team at YA Merrylands are friendly,fun and passionate about childcare. My children have thrived and are always so happy to attend daycare.
