About Us

The Daycare operates in partnerships with the children, parents and Garden Avenue School staff. We support early learning experiences for children. Program goals focus on fostering self-esteem, independence, individuality, creativity and pro-social behaviours.

Sunnyside Garden Daycare Centre promotes attitudes of fairness, respect and acceptance within an inclusive atmosphere of diversity.

We support every aspect of a child’s development when planning our programming, with emphasis on Early Childhood Education practices. Children are given many opportunities to participate in on-site activities, community events and trip outings.

Our Teachers are qualified, experienced and dedicated individuals who are committed to providing a fun, stimulating and nurturing environment for the children in our care.

We are governed by a volunteer parent Board of Directors, who in conjunction with the Supervisor ensure all regulations and licensing requirements, as outlined by the Child Care and Early Years Act 2014 are followed.
