About Explore & Develop Macquarie Park

Explore & Develop Macquarie Park is a child care centre in Sydney where children are cared for in a home-like environment from 7.30 am to 6.00 pm. This centre is proud to be rated ‘exceeding’ across all seven areas of the National Quality Framework.

The natural outdoor space is designed to captivate the children and nurture their sense of curiosity. With a mud kitchen, sandpit, tree stump obstacle course, fort, slide, teepee and even a campfire space. Sustainability is a big part of the centre’s ethos, and there is a veggie garden, succulent garden, bird feeders and worm farm that the children help to manage. The children also enjoy out of the gate excursions on the centre’s own minibus.

Close to Macquarie University, Epping Road and Lane Cove Road, the centre offers care for children from 6 weeks to school age. Why not use the Toddle website to book a tour with Explore & Develop, ‘where curiosity leads to learning.’

Reviews for Explore & Develop Macquarie Park

Xiaodi Huang14 days ago

I am writing this review as a Master of Teaching student who has undertaken a placement at this centre. Trust me when I say this is one of the best centres in Sydney. I do not work here. There are not many daycares/early learning centres/preschools in Sydney that is of this standard. The relationships between the educators/teachers are amazing, the management displays a real sense of care, quality and equality (and yes these are all elements that will impact on child development-the environment they grow up in and people that are around them). There are highly qualified teachers here with Master's and PhD degrees. Most importantly, they are truly passionate about Early Childhood Education and caring towards children. Stemming from their own academic background and research experience. I will feel very fortunate and secure if my children spend their first few years on earth at this centre.
