Early Childhood Education in NSW For Young Learners

Active children are healthy children. Our outdoor playground has numerous learning spaces and natural elements that facilitate imagination and explorative learning. Children have the opportunity to engage in a variety of gross motor activities, stimulating their love for physical activity. Developed by our qualified early childhood educators, Academy for Early Learners Children improve their fitness, motor planning, balance, coordination and body awareness. We provide yoga classes, soccer lessons and obstacle courses.

Our Learning Spaces


To ensure you do all possible work towards providing for your infant student, our early childhood education in NSW caters to all the areas to encourage learning and development.

The children are taught the importance of sustainability and organically sourced foods by learning about our extensive vegetable gardens. They love eating the fresh produce, which they get to take home at any time during the year and added as ingredients in our nutritious menu. 

We know that each child is unique and have their own set of needs. That is why we have adapted the way in which we teach young ones at our school based on world-leading research and responding to what they need personally. Sometimes kids can be shy or quiet when it comes down to how confidently they interact socially rather than speaking up first – though this isn’t always true!

Academy for early learners’ preschoolers are confident and aspiring learners. We encourage them to use their stimulating learning environment as a medium to grasp and mould the world around them. Our university qualified educational leaders take a play-based approach to a child’s learning through specifically focusing on each child’s needs, interests and knowledge. Our Educators continually adapt and change their ways of thinking to support the children who will require the following skills:

  • Innovative and adaptable
  • Creative, critical thinking problem-solvers and decision-makers
  • Lifelong learners
  • Able to work in partnership and collaboration with others.

Before our 3.5-year-old daughter joined Academy just four weeks ago, we were already flooded with glowing recommendations from our family friends. Putting our trust in word of mouth, we decided to give it a shot. Our previous childcare experience at MQ University was of top-notch quality, consistently exceeding national standards on ACEQR for many years. The transition to Academy was unbelievably smooth, and our daughter has fallen love for the place straight away. Christina, the Director, and her team are not just enthusiastic; they are a powerhouse of experience and warmth. Their programs, especially in the preschool room that we're a part of, are incredibly rich. What sets them apart is their unwavering commitment to going above and beyond for the kids and their families. This year's Christmas Party was nothing short of magical - Academy orchestrated everything, from thoughtful gifts for the kids to Santa's special visit. We are absolutely thrilled with the service so far and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone with a preschool child seeking a service that seamlessly combines high quality with affordability!

Kristina is a very nice and caring director. So are all the educators. My little one could not speak English when he started, and cried a lot for the first week. But with the warm help from them, he is now happy and learns a lot from the colorful activities in the centre! Well done!

We have recently moved to the Academy from another daycare. The staff are so lovely and welcoming and the manager takes such good care of the facility. Everyday the kids experience a new sets of activities, the days are planned with many group and free plays allowing the children to be engaged and entertained. I can honestly say my son looks forward to his days at the academy!

Academy of Early Learners has been amazing for my daughter. She started when she was 7 months and they have taken the best care, gone above and beyond with every ask and accommodated her allergy/needs as well. Kristina and her team genuinely care for the kids and makes sure they have so many opportunities to learn. Kristina has a wealth of experience and always strives to do the best for the child. I have never seen a childcare organise so many events including Sushi day (with sushi chefs onsite) , farms, reptile farm, space, dance, fire brigade and so many more, the kids are so excited. My daughter has grown so fond of them very quickly and loves spending time there. They are flexible to support us parents with our schedules and truly help the family as a whole. Definitely recommend this childcare to anyone.

I have only good things to say about this childcare centre. They have the children's best interest at heart and always go above and beyond. My daughter has been through 3 childcare centres and I'm confident to say that no other childcare centre will beat this one. Also, the reviews more than 6 months ago were reflecting on previous management. Currently, Kristina is the director. She and the educators are amazing.
