About Jacaranda Cottage

Our centre is privately owned by Cathy Creighton and Linda Ramsden. Not only are we sisters but teachers who share a genuine love and passion for the child care profession. Cathy started the kindergarten in 1984 as a small 3-5’s centre and moved to our existing premises in 1994. Linda joined her sister in 2001 and in 2004 we extended the premises to cater for the under 2’s as well.

We have a strong belief in providing children with a holistic education and are inspired by both the Reggio Emilia and Rudolf Steiner philosophies which we have implemented throughout the centre’s practices for many years.

Together with our staff our aim is to thoughtfully plan and create a harmonious and balanced day catering for each individual child’s wellbeing and inspiring them to gain a love of learning through play and imagination.

Jacaranda Cottage Reviews

  • Juan Sarmiento - 4 months ago

    Since our daughter turned two, Jacaranda Cottage has been an important part of our lives. We fell in love with the centre, since we first saw it from the outside. We remember writing to Jess, the Director that we were interested in this particular childcare for our daughter because we used to see all children and their families walk in happily in the mornings and leave in the afternoon with big smiles on their faces. Our daughter is now four and we feel that Jacaranda is part of our family. The atmosphere and the staff are welcoming and warm; we have seen a huge progression in our little girl in these last two years as she transitioned from toddler room to preschool room. Our needs have always been addressed and we find the team to be friendly and communicative, their application, Kindyhub is sent daily with lots of pictures and stories of the classroom activities. We share Jacaranda´s vision to take care of the environment and use the natural resources wisely. We feel that at Jacaranda the teachers really know who our daughter is, her interests and her needs. We also note that the staff is very happy and this is reflected in the low turn over rate they have (even their casual and support teachers are permanent), this makes us feel safe as we have built good relationships with the team. We recently moved to Lane Cove and we keep taking our daughter to North Sydney because we believe it has been an amazing foundation that has helped our daughter build her confidence. We appreciate all the guidance and love that we’ve received so far, our daughter always has a smile on her face when we pick her up.
