Who we are

Maitland Kids Preschool and Early Learning Centre is a beautiful brand new, custom fitted Early Childhood Education and Care Service catering for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years, right in the heart of Maitland.

We are proudly independently owned and family run, with a strong commitment to collaborative leadership and management. With over 40 years experience in Early Childhood Education and Care our Management Team holds a wealth of knowledge in designing the ultimate environments and leading programs for children’s learning, leisure and fun.

It is well researched that early childhood is a most significant period of life during which the greatest brain development and growth occurs. We know that the experiences and relationships your child has every day plays a key role in supporting optimal development. These early years will literally shape their brains and impact your child’s attitudes, dispositions and learning for the rest of their life.

At Maitland Preschool and Early Learning Centre we are passionate about providing excellence in early childhood care and education in a safe, nurturing and welcoming environment in which your child is fostered to become a happy individual that can positively contribute to their community and the greater society.

Collaborative partnerships with families are an essential ingredient in our ongoing program development. We acknowledge that parents are their child’s first and foremost teacher and can provide us with invaluable information relating to your child’s individual needs as well as heritage and family background. Our educators strive to build meaningful relationships with families based on mutual respect and open communication. We see value in the old proverb “it takes a village to raise a child”.

We look forward to beginning a new journey full of joyful memories with you!
