About us

Waratah Preschool and Nursery has a rich history, having provided quality early childhood education and care to Berowra families for over 30 years.

We are a preschool and long day care centre for children aged 0 to 6 years.

Open from 7.30am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday, the centre is  fully approved for the Australian government's Child Care Subsidy (CCS) and Additional Child Care Subsidy (ACCS) fee assistance.

Nutritious meals are provided for all children throughout the day by Kids Gourmet Food.

We are located close to public transport, with easy access and parking in a natural, residential area.


We follow the Early Years Learning Framework, Australia's national quality framework for early childhood education and care.


We also provide extra programs including:

  • music

  • cooking

  • creative dance

  • science experiments

  • physical movement

  •  school readiness

  • Chinese language (Mandarin)

Our centre provides daily updates about children's activities through the ChildCarer's app.  It's the best way to keep our parents and carers informed about what's happening during the day.

We also create Development Reports for each child and work towards unique goals based on their current interests and strengths.

Meet our educators

Our educators are highly qualified and experienced professionals who are passionate about early childhood development.

At our centre we have tertiary qualified early childhood teachers who also hold current NESA teacher accreditation.
