About

Welcome to First Grammar Bathurst!

Thank you for considering First Grammar Bathurst for your care and education needs.

First Grammar Bathurst provides a rich, nurturing environment for children from 6 weeks to 6 years and is open from 7:00am to 6:30pm. Our qualified educators and assistants are trained in early childhood development and our centre is well-established and equipped with an abundance of resources to meet the unique needs of children in each appropriate age range.

Our centre consists of three rooms including our Nursery (0-2 yrs), Toddler (2-3 yrs) Preschool (3-5 yrs).

For your convenience, nappies are provided and nutritious meals including breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are prepared daily using fresh market ingredients.

Our experienced and qualified educators provide specialised programs based on the Early Years Learning Framework; aimed at preparing children for school and beyond. We have a smart board that children use independently and our preschool program includes regular local excursions at no cost to our families. The children travel to and from our excursions by private bus with seatbelts at no extra cost to our families.

We have indoor and outdoor free art areas where children can paint and create as they please. Our centre has one large yard for all children to play together, siblings can play together and support each other during outdoor play times and children learn to interact with other children of all ages. The children love to explore the outdoor area including our large sandpit and our new timber tree house which has it's own shop front, rock climbing wall, ramp and slide.

As a part of our centre's sustainability program, we have chickens and a worm farm that children are able to care for and interact with.

We are a 39 place centre and this allows us to have very strong relationships with families. We value the strength of our educational team and work closely with each other to provide an environment where children can develop to their full potential.

We incorporate primary caregiving into our daily routines to ensure our educators, families and children develop strong, trusting relationships. Families receive a day book each day directly to an app on their phone which allows them to review their child's daily activities and photos before they even arrive at the centre in the afternoon.

My daughter has been attending first grammar bathurst for the past 2 years starting at 1year old and now 3. She Started off in the cubs room and is now into the "bears room". The staff are fantastic at ensuring the kids are well educated and keep learning fun. They are constantly trying new things and encouraging the kids to be individual. I really enjoy sending my daughter here, she goes 3 days a week and loves it. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are included, along with nappies! They even recently introduced breakfast for the early birds. The staff are always positive and open to feedback and making sure your child's needs are their priority. Jess (centre director) makes sure open communication is key. They have an app that gives you a daily blog on your child's day, pictures and captions included. They also have an online booking app so you can pick up an extra day or notify them of an absence, the regular weekly emails are also beneficial. Parents are also given options to buy baby products direct from their suppliers at discounted rates! If your looking for a centre for your child I would recommend checking out first grammar. They have a lot to offer.

My daughter has been attending First Grammar Bathurst since she was 1year old. She didn't take well to being dropped off in the morning and would often have tears, the staff were and always have been easy to deal with since day one and extremely accommodating. My daughter is now 3, and in this time the centre has had a full yard makeover and introduced online convieience to ensure we can book extra days or notify of absence all online. We get regular emails, and the centre even has an App that gives you a daily blog of your child's day! This centre is more on the "smaller" side compared to others in Bathurst and that's why we love this centre. The staff get to know the parents and the kids on an individual level and they always have a positive attitude even when your kid is screaming upon drop off and pick up! Would highly recommend you check out First Grammar Bathurst if you're considering putting your little one into care.

First Grammar Bathurst is an excellent day care centre. The staff are professional, but understanding and compassionate to the children and parents. There are always a range of activities for children and staff always cater to individual children's needs. Staff are friendly and approachable and available to discuss my daughter's day and progress in general. The facilities are clean and staff make you feel welcome on drop offs and pickups. I would recommend First Grammar to any one considering day care options in the Bathurst region.

My son has attended First Grammar since it was established in Bathurst, and continues to attend 3 days/week. I've been very pleased with the professional and friendly manner in which staff always present themselves, and the written and verbal communication that is fed back to me as a parent about the day. The physical environment is always very clean and inviting. They have a good range of equipment/resources and participate in various well planned out activities. The inclusion of morning and afternoon tea, as well as nappies, and the long hours of opening are also positive inclusions. Overall my son and I are very happy with a First Grammar.
