About Macquarie Child Care Centre


About Macquarie Childcare Centre

Macquarie Childcare is situated behind the Macquarie shops, near the Macquarie Primary
School oval. We are a 92 place center, with a nature backyard consisting of a large sandpit
surrounded by big boulders; a dry creek; a foot bridge; a chicken coop; children’s vegetable
and sensory garden beds; a digging patch; a self-serving water tank for water play and
watering plants; a "gunyah" cubby built with branches and a mound slide surrounded by
native grasses and large boulders for the children to sit on.

The center offers play-based learning experiences and investigations that build on each
child’s individual and shared interests. We also offer a pre-school program for 3 to 5 year
olds, in consultation with an early childhood teacher. The pre-school program uses a
transition plan for both children transitioning to pre-school and to kindergarten (primary
school). We use this plan in conjunction with the teachers and children of Macquarie
pre-school and primary school. During the year, the children will be taken on visits to the
pre-school and primary school to familiarise themselves with both settings. The children
will have the opportunity to sit and listen to a story with the school librarian; meet the
children of the pre-school and school; and visit the toilets, canteen and playground.
Morning tea will be organised with the kindergarten children with our senior pre-schoolers
(4-5 years). Also regular ball games on the Macquarie oval will be organised with the year six children for both pre-school classes (3 to 5 years). Our first visit to the Macquarie pre-school and school will be in July. This will be followed with many visits for the children during the months of September, October and November.

Our educators come from wide and varied cultures and believe in building respectful and genuine partnerships and open communication with our families and the wider community.
