Campus overview

Our purpose-built two-level Campus is situated at 87-95 Balgowlah Road, in the heart of Fairlight, and right opposite Manly Golf Club. We have two early learning preschool centres operating out of the same building. We enjoy being within walking distance of several reserves and playgrounds with the renowned Manly Beach only a 20-minute walk or a five-seven-minute drive away. With plenty of onsite parking and street parking available, families can enjoy a smooth drop off and pick up every visit. We are located near public transport with bus stops nearby that connect to the wider area just outside our door. We are close to several local schools, including Manly West Public, Balgowlah Heights Public, Manly Village Public, St Kieran’s Catholic School and St Cecilia’s Catholic School.  

With two dedicated outdoor play areas – offering bike tracks, vegetable gardens and large sandpits – children have plenty of space to run around, lead their own play and explore their creativity. Our six age-based indoor spaces are specifically designed with natural elements in mind. They are set up to encourage children to learn and grow, safely. At our Fairlight childcare centre, we enjoy connecting with our local community through planned excursions and community activities that build on the children’s curriculum and interests. 

At our Fairlight childcare centre, our passionate educators, allied health specialists and accredited dietitians are focused on creating a learning space where families and children can learn and grow together. Each day, our in-house chefs prepare nutritionally balanced meals using fresh, locally grown ingredients. Our nourishing meals are included in enrolment, allowing your child to enjoy seasonal meals with the right nutrition for their growing bodies.
