WELCOME: Kids Cottage Preschool is an Early Childhood Preschool service based in Oatlands, North Parramatta NSW. We specialise in delivering bespoke preschool programs, with longer hours, in a homely environment. Our academic learning programs focus on traditional core content areas, with contemporary approaches, that understand children learn best in social settings that explore their interests and ideas.

PAY FOR USE PRESCHOOL - We believe that you should only have to pay for the services you are using. We are proudly one of the first preschools in Sydney where families can do this. Pay for what you use. Our fees options are structured for shorter day or longer day attendance. This flexibility gives families the control to decide what service provisions they will use without hidden charges.

EXCLUSIVE LEARNING SPACES FOR PRESCHOOL CHILDREN: We provide dedicated learning areas separate from the main classroom that will enable your child to participate in small group learning experiences that are of interest to them. This includes separate library, art, kitchen preparation, STEM/science room and rest areas. Small group experiences enable your child's Educator to provide tailored learning opportunities for your child to extend on their existing knowledge.

ACADEMIC LEARNING & CHILD LED LEARNING: The service acknowledges that there is a place for both traditional and contemporary learning approaches. Traditional learning includes programmed times for small groups consisting of mathematical and literacy learning. These lessons are prepared by a qualified early childhood and school teacher. Contemporary learning ensures there are child led experiences that offer children the opportunity to explore the environment and be engaged in learning opportunities with educators that use various teaching strategies to enhance children's learning.

TEAM OF EDUCATORS: We are fortunate that we have long term educators with most educators being at the service for more than 4 years. The consistency and team approach ensures that children have a strong sense of belonging. Long term educators are better able to understand each child and develop programs that support each child's holisitic development. The service employs additional educators to ensure our ratios exceed those required by legislation.

AWARD WINNING: We have been recognised for our achievements winning awards for our science programs, health and wellbeing programs and our programs that embed Aboriginal culture into the curriculum.

FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS: Kids Cottage recognises the expertise of families, where families are encouraged to share in decision making about their child's learning and wellbeing and are are actively encouraged to contribute to service decisions.

COMMUNITY LINKS: With family permission and where possible, children participate in regular excursions within the local community and wider community, for example, local schools, aged care facility, parks, zoos etc.

We look forward to meeting your family!

We have enrolled both our children for the last few years. We initially had our first child enrolled at the centre but we were very impressed with the whole service that we didn't hesitate to enrol our 9 month old in the 0-2 room. The team are very friendly and trustworthy and provide great details of our children's day. It is really obvious the staff love what they do. The outdoor area is fantastic and the indoor areas are really homely and really show that the children are kept busy during the day. Great experience all around.
My child started at the centre early 2015 and he progressed from the babies room in to the toddler room. I was a bit nervous when he moved rooms but the educators made me feel at ease with regular communication about how he was settling, how he was eating and the new friends he was making. I even received email updates about how his transition was progressing. This made me feel at ease to know that the educators were concerned about my child's wellbeing. He was very attached to the educators in the baby's room but quickly formed close bonds with the educators in the toddlers room.
