Macquarie Childcare Centre is a family owned centre. It was established in 1994 and is situated in a well-established leafy suburb behind the Macquarie shops in the ACT. Our centre boasts two beautiful backyards for our senior and junior children to play in. The natural backyard for our pre-schoolers consists of a large sandpit surrounded by big boulders; a dry creek; a foot bridge; a chicken coop; children’s vegetable and sensory garden beds; a digging patch; a self-serving water tank for water play and watering plants; a "gunyah" cubby house built with branches; swings; hot scotch; sensory path and a mound slide surrounded by native grasses and large boulders for the children to sit on and dream. The toddler backyard features large sandpit; fixed climbing equipment and slide; swings; digging patch and a vegetable patch. We are located next to the Macquarie Primary School oval.
In 2010, the centre had a complete makeover from 62 places with three (3) rooms to a 92 place centre with six (6) rooms.
Macquarie Childcare Centre has two (2) nursery rooms with a capacity of eight (8) children in each. The ages vary from 6 weeks to 12 months. The third nursery room (N3) has a capacity of twelve (12) children from the ages of 12 months to 2 years of age.
The centre has a toddler room with a capacity of twenty (20) children aged between 2 and 3 years. We also have two (2) pre-school rooms. A junior preschool room for 3 to 4 year olds, with a capacity for 22 children and a senior pre-school room for 4 to 6 year olds. It also has a capacity for 22 children. This senior room operates a daily preschool program with a qualified Early Childhood Teacher. The centre provides the children in the senior preschool room with a language program called ELLA. This is subsidised by the Government to private preschools who employ an early childhood teacher.
Macquarie Childcare Centre’s educators come from wide and varied cultures and believe in building respectful, genuine and inclusive partnerships with our children, families and the wider community.
