Welcome to Precious Cargo Collinswood

Utilising the Montessori philosophy, Precious Cargo  Collinswood offers holistic learning and enriching care for children from 6 weeks to school age. The centre is proud to have a multicultural team of skilled educators who create an inclusive, safe and welcoming environment, where children can learn, develop and thrive.

The two-storey centre has been purpose designed with calm and inviting spaces. Children play and learn in light-filled rooms with carpets and soft colours, while a dining room, music room and kitchen cooking platform add to the homely atmosphere. Educators present stimulating activities such as art, yoga, cooking and music that help build cognitive skills, emotional development and wellbeing.
In the two spacious outside play areas, children can create magical moments with the fun play equipment. This includes a spider web climbing frame, a rock mound with a slide and tunnel, and bike paths. In line with the Montessori focus on sustainability and sensory education, the centre has pet frogs, vegetable and herb gardens, compost bins, and a Grow Free cart. Children also build physical and motor skills with the Via Dance, Little Tennis Stars and Happy Feet Dance programs.

The centre is centrally located with parking at hand. Why not book a tour of this inclusive and inviting centre today?

The centre ignites children’s curiosity with regular incursions and excursions.


The Nursery routine offers consistency, freedom of movement, and a variety of experiences such as art & craft, outside play, music and movement.

Educators create a safe, fun and educational environment, regularly offering new challenges that will stimulate the children’s growth and development.
