Giraffe Early Learning Centre - Balgowlah

Catering for babies, toddlers and preschoolers our Balgowlah centre encourages a daycare environment that makes children feel safe whilst enjoying the freedom to express themselves as individuals. We provide nutritional meals, nappies and offer a strong foundation for early education.

Giraffe Early Learning Centre - Balgowlah is conveniently located across the road form Manly West State School. We are a newly opened, purpose built Centre in a beautiful State listed heritage building.

We cater for children aged 6 weeks until 5 years and Operate 7am-6pm Monday-Friday, 50 weeks per year.

Giraffe ELC has an extensive architect designed outdoor environment.  The areas provide many opportunities with a variety of materials to develop the children’s gross and fine motor skill as well as social skills.   We value uniqueness and nurture future growth by embracing the individual. We recognise areas of interest, developing respectful interactions, providing positive guidance, supporting ongoing learning, offering inclusive programs and promoting self-help skills and teamwork.

We have onsite parking to make pick ups and drop offs that little bit easier.

Contact us for more information.

Let's Play Daycare is a Steiner influenced long daycare set in a warm and nurturing home like environment specifically tailored for 2-6 years.   It is a play based curriculum full of joy and wonder that supports the child’s social and cognitive skills as well as their fine and gross motor skills by appealing to the emotions and feelings of the child and bringing it into action. 

The children in this age group learn through experiencing the world through movement, doing, and imitation and there is a beautiful balance between free play and structure that gives rhythm and routine to the day and the week. 

Children's play supports creative problem solving so the environment is filled with beautiful indoor natural hand crafted toys and open ended play materials as well as a lovely large garden area with a sandpit and chicken pen (two beautifully friendly and fluffy silky hens) to engage in rich imaginative play.    Enrol today by contacting us.

German International School Sydney 

We offer a combined curriculum of both the New South Wales and German syllabus from Preschool to Year 10. This combination provides learners with a complete education experience in a co-educational and multi-lingual environment. In Years 11 and 12 the school offers the IB Diploma programme. Students and teachers from diverse backgrounds interact in an atmosphere of a fair, caring, respectful, and inclusive community.

At the German International School Sydney (GISS) we emphasise divergent and critical thinking, we teach responsibility, independent learning, and time management.  Our aim is to strengthen our students’ self motivation, creativity and endurance, to help them fulfil and complete projects and plans with patience and pro-activity.

Above all, we feel that learning with one’s brain (thinking), heart (feeling) and hand (doing) is essential for each child’s learning experience and to support each student’s progress. At GISS individuality and socialisation skills are as important as are key academic competencies.  Contact us for more information.

Terrey Hills Community Kindergarten is a small non-for-profit, well established community based kindergarten offering an Early Years Learning Framework preschool education program within a beautiful peaceful warm and inviting bush setting for children 3-5 years from 8.00am to 4.00pm.

Each child is cared for individually by dedicated, caring and valued Educators, who’s priority is to create a warm, loving, energetic and stimulating environment for your child and family. We are fortunate to have long-term Educators, including the Director and an Educator who have been at THCK for over 20 years.  Contact us for more information.

Pine Street Kindergarten
Welcome to Pine Street Kindergarten, we are a privately owned, accredited, long day care centre licensed by The Department of Community Services to provide care for 24 children, 3-6 years.

Our centre is open Monday – Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm. We close public holidays and 2 -3 weeks over Christmas.

At times of play activities, the children are free to choose areas of interest in which they will participate throughout the day, both as individuals and as part of a group. We believe children learn self discipline by being able to choose their own play activities. Sharing and co-operating with others is encouraged by staff.

By observing and documenting the development of each child, staff carefully plan a program. This allows staff to concentrate on areas of difficulty as well as areas your child enjoys or excels at. 

Play activities each day will generally include painting, play dough, puzzles, construction, music, storytelling, sand and water play.

Other than group time, all the children play and eat together. We divide the children into two smaller groups for group time, usually 3 to 4 year olds and 4 to 5 year olds. This enables staff to concentrate on levels of development and school readiness.

Contact us for more information.

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
