Environment and location

Many families choose Franklin Road for our community feel and local connections. We’re next to Woolooware Public School and close to Woolooware train station.

Families value our close connection with Woolooware Public School. Many children who attend our centre move onto the primary school with many solid friendships made at Franklin Road.

Active in our community, children here connect with charities and community groups through activities and excursions.

Spacious outdoors

First-time visitors are in awe of our playground. It's one of the largest in any childcare service. This 'outdoor classroom' promotes learning and development. There are two separate play spaces for younger and older children.

Our large climbing structure, slide and sandpit are popular. Children also enjoy our trikes and bike track. Our nature walkways promote exploration.

The children enjoy nature-based play and are avid gardeners. They love picking veggies and herbs for our cook to use in their meals and to take home.

Our team

Our Centre Director has more than 25 years' experience. Families value her outstanding early childhood experience and caring disposition. She leads a talented and nurturing team. They're passionate about sustainability, creative arts and emotional wellbeing.

Families tell us they value our warm and responsive connections with them. We form strong partnerships to support each child's learning journey.

Preschool program

Our quality preschool program includes a deliberate combination of intentional teaching and spontaneous learning. It also reflects the children’s interests and each child’s learning goals.

We foster every child's love of learning. Children who are inspired to learn will thrive in every aspect of their development.  They will ask questions, process information, try new things, be happy to share and collaborate, develop friendships, join in games, and know they belong to a community of learning.

Our creative early education programs follow the Australian Government's Early Years Learning Framework, the only government-approved learning framework for children under school age.

Our preschool program fosters:

  • Language (learning new words, following directions, sharing news and stories etc).
  • Cognitive growth (concepts such as time, advanced memory games)
  • Pre-literacy
  • Pre-numeracy
  • STEAM experiences (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths)
  • Fine motor skills (pincer grip, cutting, pasting, holding a pencil, drawing, writing name)
  • Gross motor skills (hopping, jumping, skipping)

Social and emotional skills are also important for primary school. We focus on children's development in these areas:

  • Emotional resilience (self-regulating emotions, expressing emotions in a way that others would expect)
  • Self-care skills (e.g. caring for belongings, tying shoelaces, toileting by themselves)
  • Making and maintaining friendships
  • Starting conversations with others
  • Problem solving skills
  • Developing resilience
  • Sharing and taking turns
  • Compromising, cooperating and working in a group with other children.
  • Learning to adapt to changes in routines
  • Knowing when and how to ask for help
  • Empathy and caring for others.


‘The way you nurture and teach the children is incredible. You all have amazing qualities as teachers and as people.’

‘My son would not have grown and gained his confidence if it wasn’t for your caring and beautiful natures. You have each nurtured him to develop the skills and confidence to achieve new friendships.’

‘We’re blown away by the support, developmental opportunities and fun you offer the kids. You all go above and beyond to support each individual in a special way.’
