Our purposely built centre has been designed to engage young children, with indoor learning spaces and outdoor nature areas that will captivate your child’s imagination and support their growth and development.

With each element tailored to each child’s individual needs and interests, we are sure to be placing your children on the correct path for a brighter, more inspiring future.  Contact us for more information.

At Leylands Learning Centre we believe the early childhood years to be the most significant years in a child’s life. These are the years where the experiences that children are exposed to will help define who they will become. During these most important years the children’s brain develops the most and fastest than at any other stage of a person’s life. By the age of 2 years old, the brain is about 80% of the adult size! This is where the foundations for their learning, health and behaviour are shaped. With this belief as our foundation, we base children’s learning on their interests and life experiences which forms the basis of our curriculum, while incorporating The Early Years Learning Framework.

Another belief we hold strongly, is that parents are a child’s first and best teachers. We aim to work together with families in developing our curriculum, to ensure that we are accommodating children and their family’s needs and interests. Leylands Learning Centre operates 52 weeks per year, and we accomodate for children aged 6 weeks, until 6 years of age. Our hot nutritious meals meet the daily dietary requirements and we are able to accomodate for any individual dietary requirements. 

We are in the process of training for a new school readiness program that will be commencing soon - Pre Lit.  Each Wednesday we also have Happy Feet that attends, so contact us to discuss your child care needs today.

Dulwich Hill Childcare Centre has been offering a long day care service to the Inner West, Canterbury community since 2009.

We are open from 7.30am - 6.00pm, Monday to Friday and provide care and education for children aged 3 months - 6 years old.  

Our service provides delicious nutritionally well balanced meals cooked by our wonderful chef.

Dulwich Hill Childcare Centre has a team of 12 educators who are very dedicated and continue to enhance their professional development to ensure they are providing our children with a wide variety of experiences to extend their learning in line with the Early Years Learning Framework.

We also provide a comprehensive preschool and school readiness program which is delivered by qualified, experienced and caring educators. Our program has been developed to improve language, fine motor skills and gross motor skills and ensures children are ready cognitively and socially before they start school. We tailor our program to cater for each child's individual interests whilst learning through play.
We welcome all enquiries and look forward to taking you on a tour of our centre.   For more information please call 9558 8520.

Toilet Training
Just as your baby starts to get older, and you fall into a comfortable routine, it comes time to toilet train. And all of a sudden you find yourself in a spot where you just don't know what to do! Here are some helpful hints to get your prince or princess on the throne.

Pick the right time
Most children aren't ready to use the toilet until they are two or three years' old.

Start preparing your child
It's a good idea to prepare at least a week
Give it a go

It's a good idea to wait until you've got a quiet week at home before starting. Begin first thing in the morning by putting your child in their special underpants, and some old, loose-fitting clothes.

The first few weeks
Toilet training doesn't happen overnight; it might take your child just a few days to get the hang of it, or possibly a few weeks.

Sometimes children need a little extra help.

If you find yourself getting angry, or you feel as though your child is not responding, simply stop. Have a break and try again in a few weeks
