About Grey Ward Children's Centre

Grey Ward Children's Centre is an Integrated Service, which caters for families with children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age. The Grey Ward Children's Centre was the second Kindergarten to be established in Adelaide. It began in 1908 and was developed in the image of Lillian de Lissa who began training teachers in 1907 in a cottage at Franklin Street.

Grey Ward Children's Centre retains its reputation for quality learning programmes, environment and philosophy. It prides itself as an inner city centre with a very large natural outdoor play space. The Management Committee, made up of parents and staff, currently has 18 employees and prides itself on its dedication to early childhood. The Management Committee actively works towards employing highly qualified staff and maintaining small group sizes, to enhance children's well-being and ability to form successful relationships. The Centre's curriculum is made up of the principles of inquiry based play, which is guided by The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia, Belonging, Being and Becoming as well as the philosophy of Professor Ferre Laevers and Dr Louise Porter. Today's Grey Ward community is made up of families working in the Adelaide CBD who are professional/semi professionals and the children of the Grey Ward community go to schools all over Adelaide. Some past students of Grey Ward have come back to the Centre and enrolled their own children. The staff and Management Committee are proud to be a part of the Centre and will continue to actively contribute to Early Childhood Education in South Australia for years to come.

Grey Ward Children's Centre Reviews

  • Peta Seaman - over 1 year ago

    Our two boys have been going to Greyward since the middle of this year. Our oldest in the kindy room. The Kindy teachers are excellent, they run a full kindy program and go above and beyond to ensure the children are engaged. Our younger son is in the Junior Kindy room, we have seen a real change is his behaviour and he comes home everyday so happy. We can't recommend this centre highly enough.

    Our son Nathanael came from France to Adelaide for a little more than 3 months and was enrolled at Barker Kindergarten. We chose this one school for our kid and we couldn't have made a better decision. The staff has been awesome with our kid (special thanks to Susie and Andrea) who was not knowledgeable of english language, and made him feel comfortable and self-confident all the time he was there. I cannot think of someone at Grey Ward who has not been kind and helpful, and our kid has ended up speaking a bit of english while he was not even 3 years old. We are really grateful to Grey Ward for all that they did for our kid. We will never forget!
