First Grammar Hurstville
Spacious areas designed to inspire
From the moment you walk through the doors of our Hurstville child care centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to learn and explore. Our adventure-filled playgrounds feature sandpits, natural gardens, vegetable gardens, cubby houses, climbing forts, and play equipment to engage all the senses.
Our indoor spaces are very inviting to our little ones with our quality resources and learning experiences. Children wonder, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces. Literacy and numeracy concepts are embedded in play-based learning, as children engage as architects, storytellers, scientists, artists, and designers.
Dedicated team of educators
Our longstanding team of educators are passionate about nurturing and caring for children and supporting them on the early learning journey. Our educators bring their own personality into the rooms allowing for engaging learning environments and building strong relationships with the children. We understand that communication is critical between our staff and families and partner with our families to keep you informed every step of the way. You will also receive daily updates and photos detailing children’s learning and development on our parent App.
Healthy meals and cooking classes
We have everything covered here at our Hurstville child care centre, so you won’t need to worry about preparing lunch or snacks. Nutritious meals are made daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
We host Mother’s and Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, Christmas, Book Week, NAIDOC week, Harmony day – where we celebrate multiculturalism.
Our childcare centre proudly offers a kindergarten/preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more your child will become school ready.

“We have found them to be the best, most supportive & caring teachers for both my kids. We love the communications we receive; every update on the Xplor App; the in-house cooked menu, nappies provided etc & the laid back (not so academically focused) approach which allowed my kids to learn their social skills & just enjoy playing and interacting with others. I talk so highly about what has been included in our experience with this centre, and my conversations with other parents who have their kids in different day care centres, & they are so surprised at how it compares to theirs. I truly admire and appreciate everyone at First Grammar Hurstville. It honestly has been a life changer for both my kids and we couldn’t be any more grateful!”
"The staff ensure they know your child and always praise their every accomplishment. They take extra care and pay careful attention to their development. Everyone is always happy to see both you and your child, understanding every change in the situation. First Grammar Hurstville is very accommodating and is a brilliant daycare. I am ecstatic I made such a good choice straight up.
My children have been in daycare since they were 3 and a half months and the staff have assisted in every way possible. I feel that my children are in safe hands and amongst extended family whilst at daycare."
"Our kids have been at First Grammar Hurstville for the last 4 years, starting from 9 and 10 months old. We’re very happy with the place, Gordana the Centre Manager has really made a positive impact in the last few years and we didn’t hesitate to send our second child to the same place as well. The centre is very accommodating, with our kids starting from a young age it was important to get our kids familiar with the new environment during orientation. All the staff are very friendly and genuinely care for the children, the kids get are spoilt with a variety of activities throughout the day which you can see updates via the app. Strong communication from the centre is also a plus - with Gordana sending out regular newsletters/email and app updates, parent/teacher interviews and informal updates at drop off/pick up - the staff go out of their way to keep you informed of how your child is going. We also love how food/nappies are provided and there are no hassles when we need to add an extra day here and there"
“The centre has spacious indoor and outdoor areas with great resources for the children. When my two boys started in early 2021, they were very shy and had a lot of separation anxiety. The team at First Grammar Hurstville helped to make the transition as supportive and easy as possible for both the boys and myself and have helped to transform them into confident and social children, always excited to tell me about their day at pick up.
In particular, the centre continued to deliver excellent service during the COVID lockdowns. They made our family still feel connected and were very supportive during this period despite not attending the service.
The centre manager and all the educators are kind and caring, always making us feel welcome and part of the community. They are approachable and easy to talk to about anything and are always willing to help. Great communication in all aspects.
Thank you First Grammar Hurstville, you have made such a positive impact on our family.”
“First Grammar Hurstville was the ultimate pick out of many child care centres which we carried out research for. Seeing our two-year-old growing and developing bonds with his educators and friends has reassured that we made the correct choice. We also love the responsiveness of the centre as we receive all feedback needed to keep track on child progress and areas for improvement. All staff are friendly and responsible, and best of all hearing what parents have to say to facilitate cooperation between home and school. We are very happy with the child care so far, and would recommend to any new parents for their kids' very first adventure!”
