Only About Children Rose Bay Village is more than childcare; it’s a nurturing community where children thrive. Our campus offers a comforting environment that feels like home.  With an onsite kitchen serving nutritious meals, a library, and a Zen room hosting Spanish classes and occupational therapy sessions, every aspect supports your child’s growth.

At our Rose Bay Village childcare center, our dedicated team of educators are committed to fostering an enriching learning environment. We believe in creating a space where children feel secure, stimulated, and thrive every day.

Our Campus curated programs include local artist visits, exciting excursions, and regular outings to supermarkets and libraries. We also engage with local businesses and cultural groups, nurturing values of empathy and respect. Partnerships with schools and local community gardens enrich learning experiences.

With an innovative play-based curriculum we stand out by delivering intentional teaching in dynamic small group learning environments where children’s successes, skills and challenges are monitored on an ongoing basis.

School readiness is personalised, with educators and families working together. Through play-based exploration, we prepare children for lifelong success, covering literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional development.

At Rose Bay Village, we provide More Than Childcare; we nurture a community where every child thrives, learns, and discovers the joy of exploration and fun!

What our families are saying

Rose Bay Village is more than ‘just’ a childcare. It is my family’s home away from home, the place where my children are loved, respected and supported on their learning journey and as they grow.
