Macquarie Childcare Centre is a family owned 92 place centre, established in 1994 and located in the leafy suburb of Macquarie ACT. We are situated behind the Macquarie shops and across the road from the Macquarie Primary School oval.


Our centre boasts two beautiful backyards for our senior and junior children to play in. The natural backyard for our preschoolers consists of a variety of sensory and play spaces to encourage the children to explore and play with imagination. The junior backyard boasts wide and expansive spaces to accomodate our little ones bursting with energy and creativity. 

    Nursery and toddler rooms
    Macquarie Childcare Centre has two nursery rooms with a capacity of eight children in each. The ages vary from 6 weeks to 18 months. The third nursery room has a capacity for twelve children from the ages of 18 months to 2 years.  The toddler room has capacity for twenty children aged between 2 and 3 years.


    Pre-school rooms

    We  have two pre-school rooms at Macquarie Childcare Centre. A junior pre-school room for 3 to 4 year olds with capacity for 22 children. The senior pre-school room is for 4 to 6 year olds and has capacity for 22 children.


    The senior room operates a daily pre-school program with a qualified Early Childhood Teacher. The centre provides the children in the senior pre-school room with the ELLA language program. This is subsidised by the Federal Government to private pre-schools who employ an early childhood teacher. 


    Centre facilities

    In 2020, we made substantial upgrades to the centre to ensure our children have access to the best play space and equipment available.


    We provide nappies and sunscreen at no extra charge.


    Best of all, you can leave the cooking and food preparation to our onsite chef who makes delicious and nutritional meals at morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. This service is inclusive in the daily fee.
