The Centre Owner and staff are committed to providing children and families with a co-ordinated approach to a warm, nurturing and engaging environment that celebrates diversity and the right of every child to have access to high quality care regardless of their individual needs.

We understand the important role the Centre plays in nurturing and educating the children in our care and through our staff development, loving relationships based on trust and security is formed. Your children come first and meeting their needs is our priority. Our aim is to provide an environment where your children can grow and develop to their full potential.

For you as parents, we endeavour to provide a flexible environment which best suits your needs. Our hours of opening are designed to ensure that you can meet your work commitments, knowing that your children are safe and secure at child care with us. Each of our team members will discuss with you how best to work with your child- their likes, dislikes and particular interests and needs

Our open door policy invites you to call in whenever you wish to spend time with your child. We also seek your feedback on our centre operations to ensure that we are meeting both yours and your child’s needs.

One of our parents commented, “We currently have two boys at Giraffe. One is in the preschool room while the youngest is in the nursery. The staff are so welcoming, friendly and supportive of us as a family and both boys individually. Both boys love going each day and are stimulated and challenged with the various programs. While I can’t be at home with the boys full time, it is reassuring to know that they are somestwhere where they are cared for, loved and supported”.

Giraffe Early Learning Centre Balgowlah offers quality childcare in the Balgowlah and surrounding areas. Catering for babies, toddlers and preschoolers our Balgowlah childcare centre encourages a day care environment that makes the children feel safe whilst enjoying the freedom to express themselves as individuals. Our Childcare Centre provides nutritional meals and provide a strong foundation for early education.

The critical importance we place on children feeling safe and happy in our environment is evident in our generous transition period. We offer to our families a period up to 3 weeks, where they can bring their child in for a 3 hour play during the day at an agreed time, every day of the week, free of charge. This is to show our commitment to not only your child feeling content but also to parents. We understand this can be a very stressful time for parents, and we recognise that this time gives you the opportunity to discuss any concerns and to support your child through their settling in process.
