Welcome to

Balmain Care For Kids

We believe that children learn through experimenting and interacting with the environment that surrounds them.

Supporting Children and Families In The
Balmain Peninsula

It is important that educators provide a space for all children that is safe, happy and they are well cared for.
These experiences nurture each child in acquiring a love for learning. It is important to see the child as a whole and develop all aspects of the child’s physical, emotional, social, creative, cognitive and language.

The staff at Balmain Care for Kids provide a stimulating and friendly atmosphere.
Children are provided with a positive, safe and caring environment that meets their individual needs.
We believe that a balance between intentional teaching and play-based activities is essential to children’s learning and fosters every aspect of the “whole child”.

What Parents Say

National Early Learning Years Framework

Our curriculum is built around a play based program where children’s interests and strengths along with intentional teaching form the basis for learning.​


Belonging acknowledges children’s interdependence with others and the basis of relationships in defining identities


It is about the present and them knowing themselves, building and maintaining relationships with others, engaging with life’s joys and complexities, and meeting challenges in everyday life.


Children’s identities, knowledge, understandings, capacities, skills and relationships change during childhood.
