First day at child care centre

We have expanded beyond the greater Sydney

Having expanded beyond the greater Sydney area, we are delighted to now offer early childhood learning on the Central Coast. Our environments support vibrant and flexible learning, ensuring that your little one can respond to their interests and needs in a place that is safe and nurturing.

As with all Young Academics facilities, our Central Coast daycare centre supports all aspects of a child’s learning. A variety of age-specific resources caters to different learning capacities and styles, and invites interaction between children and their environment. Our indoor activities offer a vast array of possibilities for shared thinking and collaborative learning. Meanwhile, our outdoor areas consist of play spaces and natural environments, inviting your little one to understand nature through open-ended interactions, spontaneity, risk-taking, exploration, discovery and connection.

The team

Our team respects the diversity of the Central Coast community and regularly reflects on and celebrates the local culture. Our curriculum and programs support this by observing various holidays throughout the year, honouring histories, promoting languages and more. In addition to this, our educators come from a variety of backgrounds and some are bilingual.

We aim to provide enriched learning experiences that make a difference. Children at our centres learn through our Evolution (0–2 years) and Transition to School (3–5 years) programs, which are exclusive to Young Academics. Underpinning these programs is the idea that childcare is more than a series of fun activities, but is also an opportunity to develop problem-solving and critical thinking from an early age. Our programs take a holistic approach to learning that brings together the best childhood education theories based on current research, collaboration with families and our professional expertise.

The Nutrition program at Young Academics is led by an on-site chef who specialises in child nutrition and health. This means every meal consists of essential ingredients, nutrients and nourishment, keeping your child’s mind and body healthy. To further promote healthy living, our programs also include activities such as kitchen garden programs and cooking classes, to provide insight into food preparation and mindfulness.
