Welcome to Camperdown Sunshine Kids

Welcome to Camperdown Sunshine Kids!

Purpose built Sunshine Kids is a locally owned and run family business that has been delivering high quality early education and care in Sydney since 2002. 

Sunshine Kids has been providing for the Camperdown community since 2007.

We are inspired by many educational philosophies and theories, including the Reggio Emilia approach and view children as strong, capable and resilient. We strive to nurture their unique perspectives and support their ability for complex thinking.

Sue and Roger Humphry understand and believe in the importance of early education and care. They are passionate about providing high quality education and care for each and every Sunshine Kid.

Bush Kinder

Bush Kinder our preschool classes enjoy spending time exploring the natural environment within our local community through weekly visits to the reserve near our centre. During these visit the children are encouraged to observe nature, enjoy being in an outdoor environment and develop a sense of belonging within their community. Bush Kinder programs have been found to increase children’s wellbeing and support their social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. We have found that our Bush Kinder program has helped our preschool children develop their respect for the environment and develop their understanding of and respect for shared spaces within their community.


Our programs include a range of incursions throughout the year. We have visitors that cover topics including; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island culture, science, sustainability, animals, child protection and safety. We also plan incursion that link with current interests and projects as these interests develop, ensuring that they are meaningful and timely.

Connecting with our Community

We believe in having reciprocal relationships with our community. We enjoy relationships with a number of local businesses, organisations and groups and these relationships are an invaluable part of our program and contribute to the learning and development opportunities we provide our children.


Our preschool children are offered the opportunity to take part in soccer coaching with Socca Joeys. Socca Joeys is a weekly program and we utilise the sporting fields across the road from the centre during this time.

For those preschool children, who are not interested in soccer also visit the sporting fields during this time each week and take part in games and activities that develop their Fundamental Movement Skills.


At Sunshine Kids, we have an atelier, this dedicated space within the centre offers children materials and experiences for expression, exploration of artistic processes and to introduce them to new aesthetic dimensions. The atelier is operated by an early childhood trained artist who offers experiences that link to children’s interests and current explorations.

Centre philosophy

At the Heart: Children and Families Sunshine Kids is a place where children and their families are the cornerstone of our community. We believe in the power of partnership between educators, children, and their families, striving to strengthen this bond continuously.

Unique Identities and ExpressionsWe recognize and celebrate the unique identity of each child, fostering their independence and self-expression. Our holistic approach to education respects and nurtures each child's learning journey, viewing ourselves as partners in discovery alongside them.

A Journey of ExplorationOur environment is designed to be a comfortable and stimulating space where children can truly be themselves. Here, they can explore, interact, and achieve to their full potential, engaging in activities that provoke thought, experimentation, and creative expression.

Acknowledging Our HeritageWe honor the original custodians of our land, the Gadigal people, and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members of our community. Sunshine Kids is nestled within a heritage building, a constant reminder of our place and responsibility within our community and the importance of sustainability in our actions.
