Campus Overview

Our purpose-built Campus is intimate and homely. We are conveniently located at 90 Balmoral Street, just a short walk from Waitara Public School and Hornsby Hospital. With onsite parking available, families can enjoy a smooth drop off and pick up each time they visit. We are uniquely situated between a number of fantastic local reserves, parks and playgrounds with plenty to offer the whole family. Hornsby Station is a 16-minute walk in one direction and Waitara Station is a 14-minute walk in the other. We have bus stops nearby that connect to the wider area in both directions.  

With a naturally shaded, dedicated outdoor play area – featuring bike tracks and a slide – children enjoy the space to create, explore and lead their own play. Our two age-based indoor spaces have been designed specifically to encourage children’s learning and growth through a focus on safety and natural elements. We love to connect with our local area and community through excursions and activities that feed into children’s interests and learning. At our Hornsby childcare centre these include regular trips to local parks and our nearby Only About Children Wahroonga Campus.
