Family Time

Parents' Corner

The role of the family is very important to the development of the child and their experiences in the classroom. Parents are welcome and are encouraged to undertake observation time in the classroom. Parent involvement is an important part of the culture at all of our Sydney Early Learning Centres. Such involvement helps provide important opportunities for parents to experience the centres’ environment, to share the joy of learning with their child, and to develop a dialogue with their child’s teacher, the rest of the staff, and with other families in the Sydney Early Learning Centre community.

We provide a high quality service with state of the art equipment. We strive to provide your child with the best childcare experience he or she can possibly receive through experienced and qualified staff, a safe, hygienic environment and natural indoor and outdoor programs. We envision that our centre will become an extension of many families within the Toongabbie, Westmead & Pendle Hill Community and we look forward to being a part of yours too. Please feel free to contact us, we would be more than happy to discuss your childcare needs further and answer any queries you may have.

Parent Participation

Parents are our biggest support. Their encouragement and aid, in whatever way, such as coming to a parent night, collecting bits and pieces for collage and art activities, help with fund raising and at busy bees, is of invaluable assistance. Being a Parent Committee Member to help us with our valuable Policy updates and feeding all the parent concerns or queries back to us.


You are encouraged to become involved with the program of the centre and your ideas and suggestions will be greatly appreciated. We are always happy to have people come into the centre with interesting things to show, sing, teach and make with the children, especially activities of a multicultural nature.


You can be involved by explaining your child’s temperament, stages of development and likes and dislikes to the caregivers. Even though a parent’s life is very busy, we would appreciate a few minutes every morning and evening as you bring and collect your child to talk about how he/she is progressing. Tell the caregivers the little things they need to
know e.g. changes in sleeping patterns, any development you observe, the cold your child appears to be contracting or how an activity was enjoyed.


To give the children the best opportunity for development, child care staff and parents work hand-in-hand. We want children to gain the best that is possible from our centre, so please do keep in touch and discuss your joy, problems, concerns and feelings with the staff. A suggestion box is also located in the foyer.
