Sydney Cove Children's Centre East & West

See how we’re inspiring learning for life at Sydney Cove Children’s Centres. Our long day care and early learning centres are ideally located for families who live or work in Sydney CBD, Sydney Central, Barangaroo and The Rocks.

Sydney Cove Children’s Centres (East and West) are two child care centres that operate together in one convenient location and have been independently rated ‘Exceeding’ under the National Quality Standard.

Convenient Sydney CBD Child Care & Kindergarten

Our child care centres are conveniently located a three-minute walk from Wynyard Station in the heart of Sydney CBD. Go up the ramp on the corner of Jamison and Lang Streets to enter. If you’re driving, free 30-minute parking vouchers for secure parking on Jamison Street are available. If you’re walking, we offer secure pram parking in the long day care centres.

Spacious areas designed to inspire

As soon as you open the doors to our Sydney CBD child care centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to learn and explore. Our adventure-filled playgrounds feature sandpits, pirate ship and submarine cubby houses, and play equipment to engage all the senses. Children are provided with time and space for uninterrupted play to explore the outdoors testing their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence. Being outside supports children’s overall health and wellbeing.

Our indoor spaces invite exploration with quality resources and learning experiences. Children wonder, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces. Our experienced early childhood educators plan play-based learning experiences around children’s interests and learning goals. Literacy and numeracy concepts are embedded in play-based learning, as children engage as architects, storytellers, scientists, artists, and designers.

Healthy meals freshly prepared in-house

Let us take care of the work of preparing lunch and snacks for your child. Healthy, freshly made meals and snacks are created daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.

Fun and active learning programs

At our Sydney CBD childcare centre every day is a different learning adventure. Your child will have access to engaging specialised programs, including a yoga, sport, language, and a music and movement program. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program.

Community-based learning opportunities

Our early childhood educators and children venture out on excursions to our local community near Sydney CBD, visiting the nearby local primary school, Fort Street Public School, Custom House Library, and the Museum of Contemporary Art. We welcome special guests and local community members to the child care centre based on the childrens' interests. Neighbourhood connections support a sense of community and belonging for children and provide opportunities to develop social and observational skills with different people, places, and environments.

As members of our Early Learning Services community, we look forward to partnering with you to provide information, support, and high-quality education and care in your child’s formative years.
