About Ray Street Children's Centre

Our care and education service is open from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm and provides quality long day care and education for children ages six weeks to six years.

Our experienced and qualified educators provide programs based on the Early Years Learning Framework including a specialised Kindergarten program taught by a qualified teacher; aimed at preparing children for school and beyond.

In addition to quality care and education the centre provides nappies and nutritious meals as part of the fees.

We believe in our children learning the importance of protecting and respecting the environment. Our outdoor areas boast vegetable patches for the children to grow and maintain a worm farm and water tank. We also try to be very conscious in regards to recycling & energy use- separating all our rubbish & food scraps, turning off lights, appliances, heaters when not required.

We are focused on using natural materials & creating a home like environment. We are very team and family focused and strive to treat each and every family member (and educator) as though they are part of our family.

We welcome you to contact the centre or drop by at any time to meet the team and learn more.

Reviews for Ray Street Children's Centre

Josie Annaalmost 2 years ago

My daughter has been going to Ray Street since she was 18 months and she loves it. She has made such sweet little friends and all the staff really seem to understand her and enjoy her company. Now at age 3 she is really into dinosaurs, space and cars - and they make awesome activities around her interests on certain days and it just melts my heart. They really encourage outdoors play, gardening, chooks and all that good stuff too.My 3 year old also probably eats better with the Ray Street cook than she does with us at home. Now starting my second child in the creche and feeling very confident and happy that I can leave her there is very capable hands. Just a note they have a low staff turn over so you really get to know the teachers and they all seem to love their job and the kids.
