About Macquarie Child Care Centre

Macquarie Childcare Centre is a family owned centre. It was established in 1994 and is situated in a well-established leafy suburb behind the Macquarie shops in the ACT. Our centre boasts two beautiful backyards for our senior and junior children to play in. The natural backyard for our pre-schoolers consists of a large sandpit surrounded by big boulders; a dry creek; a foot bridge; a chicken coop; children’s vegetable and sensory garden beds; a digging patch; a self-serving water tank for water play and watering plants; a "gunyah" cubby house built with branches; swings; hot scotch; sensory path and a mound slide surrounded by native grasses and large boulders for the children to sit on and dream. The toddler backyard features large sandpit; fixed climbing equipment and slide; swings; digging patch and a vegetable patch. We are located next to the Macquarie Primary School oval.

In 2010, the centre had a complete makeover from 62 places with three (3) rooms to a 92 place centre with six (6) rooms.

Macquarie Childcare Centre has two (2) nursery rooms with a capacity of eight (8) children in each. The ages vary from 6 weeks to 12 months. The third nursery room (N3) has a capacity of twelve (12) children from the ages of 12 months to 2 years of age.

    I can highly recommend the centre and the team. The management has been wonderful to deal with, they have been flexible, kind and remember me by name. Below is an extract from an email I sent to the team recently to say thank you 'I just wanted to let you know and say thank you to the team for the true care they show. I know there are lots of kids and families but you are all an important part of the workings of our family, thank you we appreciate all you do.'.

    Macquarie child care centre is a really special place. My son has been going there for a while and is always happy to go in the mornings. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and are great with the kids. I love the fact that the centre is always thinking of ways to be environmentally friendly and sustainable and importantly, teaching the kids about what that means. The facilities are lovely and whenever I visit, the kids look happy and engaged. Couldn't recommend higher.
