First Grammar Baulkham Hills

About Us

First Grammar Baulkham Hills is a purpose built childcare Centre, designed to be a Centre of excellent care, education and also a warm and friendly second home for children. Highly trained experienced educators deliver a supportive and challenging learning environment that facilitates a warm relaxed atmosphere.

The Centre operates between the hours of 7:30am and 6:30pm, Monday to Friday.

The Centre caters for 39 children per day between the ages of 6 weeks and five years.

We have two learning discovery rooms (a 0 – 3 years and 3 – 5 years) and a shared adventure playground. Within each room children are divided into primary care groups.

  • 0 – 2
  • 2 – 3
  • 3 – 4
  • 4 – 5 & School Readiness

While each group has a “primary educator” assigned all our team members work closely with all children and provide the optimum learning environment.

 

Curriculum

An educational program based on children’s levels of development, needs and interests is implemented on a daily basis.

The centre runs an extensive Preschool Program (taught by a qualified University trained Early Childhood Teacher), inclusive of a school readiness program, which is incorporated into the yearly program, and focused on in the last six months of the year prior to school commencement.

Our Curriculum for all age groups facilitates a range of individual and small group experiences as well as providing children with the opportunity to  participate in indoor and outdoor activities, quiet and active activities, structured and self initiated experiences.

We welcome you to come in and have a look around at any time. This gives you the chance to meet our friendly educators and have a look at the learning centres provided.

We would love to make you a part of our family.

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centres:

“My eldest started at First Grammar over 3 years ago and we love this centre! It’s a lovely caring team and they provide lots of great activities for the kids. The Centre Manager is very helpful and hands-on and you feel like you are part of a family. My two kids currently attend and both love going to daycare each day. I couldn’t be happier with the centre and always recommend it to other families!”

– Michelle

 

“This is an amazing centre you would not regret putting your child in here; the staff are amazing and the centre is friendly warm and clean.”

– Heidi

 

“My daughter has been in the centre since 3 months old and is due to graduate this month. The centre has become like family for us and it will be such a sad time when we move on. All the staff over the 5 years have been fantastic and our daughter has grown so much in all areas thanks to the centre. The centre has been brilliant at all levels and cannot thank them enough for what they have done for our daughter. It has been a very special time for us as the parents and for our daughter and if only I could stop time now and enjoy it just a wee bit longer I would.”

– Murray

 

“We recently moved our sons to the centre and they as well as us, love it! The carers are just lovely and you can truly tell they’re all about the children. We get constant feedback about the boys’ progress and daily activities. We would definitely recommend this centre to local parents.”

– Beeta

 

We have been using this centre for the past 5 years. Both our children have attended here, our youngest still attending. It is a warm, secure centre with wonderful staff. Very caring towards the children, also supportive & communicative towards the parents. There is a core group of long term staff that maintain the high standards of the centre. My older child still loves popping in at the morning drop off for a quick chat about how school (& life) is going. Genuinely love this centre & the care they offer is second to none.

“Ian and I just wanted to say a big thank you for welcoming Aiden yesterday and settling him in. Everyone has been so helpful and flexible – and great on giving updates on how he’s going. It’s so lovely for me to be able to go back to work and feel comfortable knowing our little boy is in such good hands! So nice to see his photo in the daily report too.

Thanks again to you and your team.”

– Michelle and Ian

 

“Just a quick note to say how brilliant your daily updates from both rooms are. It’s terrific to see our boys busy learning and having fun.”
