Early Education & Care

Early Childhood Education & Care

Delivering Quality Education and Care.

As a non-profit organisation we’re able to focus on children and families – not the bottom line.

The important decision of choosing high quality early education and care is the first big decision you will most likely make about your child’s education and establishes the foundation for a future of engaged learning.

Our 4 Early Education and Care centres are non-profit and were created solely with the intention of creating places of education and care for children 0-6 years of age.

This gives us the distinct advantage of being able to focus directly on the task of educating and caring for your child.

Contact us to discuss you and your child’s needs and to take a tour of our centres. Call 02 6126 4728 or email: enrolments@communityservices1.org.
