About Gumnut Gardens

Gumnut Gardens is an independent Children’s Service (Early Learning and Long Day Care) housed in a beautiful federation house with a large garden and shade trees located on the border of Paddington and Centennial Park. We make the most of our location; we conduct bush kindy in Centennial Park. As a small Centre, we encourage children to just “be”. We encourage them to explore our garden and our indoor environment, develop their own interests and interact with each other and staff.

There is a strong sense of belonging to a community at Gumnut Gardens: a community that promotes social justice, education and environmental sustainability – we pride ourselves on our eco-friendly practices. We are part of the wider community of Paddington, Woollahra and Centennial Park and we actively engage with local libraries, local galleries, essential services (such as the police and fire brigade) and Centennial Parklands

Our teaching staff use the interests of children and their families as the cornerstone of our curriculum. Educational philosophies combine with the individual interests and abilities of the children to allow each one to become the unique individual they are entitled to become.

Gumnut Gardens Reviews

    A home away from home. 😊

    Gumnut Gardens is so wonderful. The teachers (which always make these places) are truly exceptional. Our little boy has such a good time in the treehouse out the back, exploring centennial park every week, learning about nature, eating great food, but most of all playing in a million different ways. I really couldn't recommend it more. And don't let the busy road fool you - it's quite the oasis out the back!
