SDN Surry Hills Long Day Care and Preschool Centre overview

Welcome to SDN Surry Hills Long Day Care and Preschool

SDN Surry Hills provides quality early childhood education and child care for 60 children per day in Sydney’s vibrant inner east community.

The centre first opened its doors in 1918, and has been a place of warmth and welcome ever since. Knowing and being active in the local community is important to our team and we pride ourselves on the connections we have made and maintained over the years, all the while watching the local area transform into the vibrant, creative and colourful place it is today.

Relationships with children, families and one another are the basis of our educational program and we know children need to feel safe and welcomed to reach their full potential. When your child begins at SDN Surry Hills our dedicated team of professionals will asking many questions to help them to get to know their unique needs, as well as the needs of your family.

Our learning environments are developed over days, weeks, months and years, with problem-solving, creativity and collaboration among our most valued teaching and learning tools. Our playground is a place of natural wonder and a rare gem in this inner city suburb - brimming with mature gum trees, open space, lush gardens and home to our resident guinea pigs. You can learn more about our educational program here.

Our families say…
"I feel very grateful to have qualified and caring professionals educating my son. It’s wonderful to feel at ease when I leave him for the day.”

“I feel confident that my son is happy, safe and engaged when he is in care.”
