We are very lucky with our location. We have a large outdoor area, the largest I have worked at in my 12 years.

We’re also walking distance to Ruddock Park and Thornleigh West Public School.

Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centre:
“My 2 girls both not only hit all their milestones, but in many cases exceed my expectations, and I know that it is due to the work that is done with them at First Grammar in conjunction with my own efforts. The Carers are always willing to work with me on any issues that come up for my girls and together we have overcome many of my worries. Whether in person or on the phone, all the carers at the centre always have time to discuss my kids with me and I never feel cut off… I shall be sad to say goodbye when my younger daughter finally goes off to big school.”
“My daughter has been attending First Grammar Westleigh for approximately 10 months. We love this centre for the amazing outdoor area, where most of our daughters time is spent (weather permitting) and the staff, who are incredibly engaging and fun. From a centre management and parent engagement perspective, Miss Ally has made significant improvements since taking over the centre. I couldn’t be happier.”
“First Grammar have incredible space and facilities that my son loves and enjoys. Since enroling him about 7 months ago I’ve watched him grow and learn in a happy and accepting learning environment. When ever I have raised an issue with the centre it has been dealt with immediately and with discretion. Miss Amy (2IC) has been a shinning light for my son, she is loving, caring & firm but fair. This approach has allowed him to grow up into a confident and happy little boy. Thank you!”
