Punchinello Kindergarten is a 33 place Long Day Care Centre for children aged 18 months -6 years.

The centre has been providing services to families in the Balgowlah and Manly area for 40 years.

We are open from 8am-6pm Monday to Friday and are closed for public holidays and 2 weeks over Christmas.

We provide an educational program based on the Early Years Learning Framework and parents can view the activities which their child has been doing on a daily basis. The centre is very family orientated.

Groups: Tadpoles are 18 months -3 years and Frogs are 3-6 years

Educators: we have an Early Childhood Teacher, Diploma of Children’s Services and Certificate III educators. The staff have been working at the centre for 2-20 years.

We provide nutritional meals for the children and a shady back yard for outdoor play. There were renovations 4 years ago to the indoor rooms which has made it open and airy.
