Welcome to Carlton Childcare & Preschool

Welcome to Carlton Childcare and Preschool - finalist of St George Business Awards 2022 and 2023!

Little in size….big in heart and soul, Carlton Childcare & Preschool is a long standing childcare and early learning centre in Carlton, where literally generations of families have been enrolled. For the past 22 years, Carlton Childcare & Preschool has been providing local families with the highest quality of childcare and early learning, and for the past decade, the centre has operated under the leadership of Award winning operators Anastasia Papadopoulos and Simon Leverton.

Our gorgeous boutique designed childcare centre in Carlton caters to 36 children and features cozy interiors with neutral colours, delicious home cooked style meals and warm, nurturing highly qualified staff -most of whom have been working at the centre since we ‘opened the doors’.

Our centre is made up of both indoor and outdoor spaces and together, provide ample opportunity for children to discover, explore, create, learn and importantly…have fun! Indoors is made up of activity filled rooms with comfortable reading nooks and well defined educational spaces, while outside you’ll find our secure yard is full of fun play equipment to foster creativity and encourage positive interaction between each child. From the cool underwater theme painted backdrop that inspires many great imaginary tales, to the large sandpit, established herb gardens, play equipment and grassed area, the playtime desires and energy levels of all our children are very well catered for. Our much loved Cook, Gogo is a huge part of our quality services preparing and cooking home grown and cooked ingredients for over 12 years to our children.

Carlton Childcare & Preschool has also has a strong networking relationship with Carlton Public School, which is located directly next door. In preparation for kindergarten, our preschoolers have numerous opportunities throughout the year to go on an excursion and visit the school. The children love these excursions as it not only assists with the transition to ‘big school’, but also allows them to garner a sense of ‘belonging to the community’. Representatives from Carlton Public School are also strong influences in the creation and implementation of our school readiness program. This ensures that the school program we deliver is as current, relevant and up to date as it can be.

Carlton Childcare & Preschool is privately owned and run by Anastasia Papadopoulos and Simon Leverton, Award winning child care centre operators and much loved members of the Southern Sydney community. Our early learning centre is open Monday – Friday from 7am to 6pm for 52 weeks of the year (closed on NSW Public Holidays) and caters for children between the ages of 18 months – 5 years.

Please contact us for any questions or to book a tour of the centre. We look forward to welcoming your family to Carlton Childcare & Preschool family

What the parents say

I’m so grateful for the fact that I have found Carlton Childcare & Preschool for my two and a half year old daughter, where she goes there 5 days a week and loves everything in there. The most important thing when finding a childcare centre, that every parent would be concerned about, is the trust you have from them. The staff in Carlton Childcare & Preschool are nice and friendly, but most importantly, they all love kids and care for them.

As a dad, I’m very impressed with Carlton Childcare & Preschool. My son loves it. The staff there have helped bring out the very best in him. They provide so many different and varied activities that ensure no two weeks are the same.

Ben - Parent 

We would like to share our love and appreciation to all the teachers and management who have made her first journey in life a fun and beautiful one. We couldn’t wish for a more caring and dedicated staff who in their busy day, find the time to learn a little about Sienna and the things she loves. Thank you for continuing to make our daughter’s journey memorable.

Tammy - Parent
