About Peek-A-Boo Cottage

Located in the leafy suburb of Seaforth in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Peek-A-Boo Cottage has been established since 2008. The centre has been family owned and operated since its inception and has been designed to cater for the 0 to 2-year age group in a boutique home away from home environment. The emphasis has always been to provide a higher quality of nurturing childcare that caters to the individual’s early education requirements.

Each child is as unique as their families are in our community and choosing the best opportunities for your child’s care can seem shrouded in fog; at Peek-A-Boo Cottage we want to roll back the mist and let the sunshine into this process. We believe the best way to decide if Peek-A-Boo Cottage is the right place for your child, is to come and spend some time with us on a one to one basis and experience the benefits personally.

To arrange your special time, please feel free to call us on 02 8084 4745 or email; we’re looking forward to meeting all of you.

Peek-A-Boo Cottage is open Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm with the exception of public holidays and 2weeks over the Christmas/New Year period.

There is an off-street parking bay providing a safe drop-off and pick-up area for families; should you wish to spend longer there is plenty of more permanent parking in Magarra Place.

We have a dedicated disabled, wheelchair and pram access.
