About Us

Forrest Early Childhood Centre is a 46 place centre, situated in the parliamentary triangle, with a lovely outlook to parliament house and surrounded by a natural leafy setting. Our team prides itself on creating a happy, friendly environment, providing excellent care and education, with an inclusive play based curriculum. The centre operates 50 weeks a year.

We cater for children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age and the centre is open from 7.45am to 6.00pm. 

The centre has an open door policy, inviting parents and educators to be a part of the daily program as much as is possible. We invite families to visit at any time and become involved in the centre as much as they desire. We hold family information sessions throughout the year so families can contribute to the Centre Community.

We have additional programs within the centre including an integrated Preschool program, a yoga program provided by “Yoga Garden”, Grow Together (encourages the whole centre community to be involved in a gardening project).

Fees: Fees apply; Childcare Benefit available
