Engaged educators + first class facilities = happy little ones

A bit about us

At Young Academics, we’re dedicated to giving children aged 6 weeks to 6 years the brightest possible start. We’re committed to providing the very best in programs, teaching methods, nutrition, and above all the highest level of personal care to every child.

Because no two little learners are the same, we provide early learning and care that’s shaped around each individual child in state of the art learning environments. Our facilities and resources are second to none.

Children are encouraged to explore, learn and develop at their own pace. And while education underpins everything we do, our play-based approach means that little ones are always allowed to be little ones.

We believe that early childhood is a celebration of learning. We show this by honouring diversity and valuing our staff, children, families and the wider community every day.

We believe every child has the right to feel like a valued and respected member of the early learning community.

Why Us?

Choosing a childcare centre for your precious little person is no small decision. At Young Academics, we understand the many factors you need to consider – and we’re here to support you every step of the way. While we pride ourselves on our excellent facilities and play-based learning programs, it’s our team that sets us apart.

Great childcare comes from great educators. That’s why we go out of our way to select childcare professionals who are highly qualified, experienced, active, and truly love what they do. It may sound simple, but families and children feel the difference.

Your child – Our commitment

We know that your children mean everything to you and it’s a privilege to play a role in their education and care. It’s a role we don’t take lightly.

At Young Academics, we’re committed to giving every child the brightest possible start. It’s a commitment we make to each and every child we care for – but also one we make to families, educators and the community. Together, we strive to make Young Academics a place that’s safe, supportive and inclusive; where diversity is celebrated and children are encouraged to reach their potential.


While pursuing a successful career in law, Young Academics Founder, James Kazzi was struck by how many of his colleagues spoke to him about their struggles to find childcare that provided a nurturing, individualised educational approach for their children.

With a strong passion for education since a young age, James, along with his family, envisioned a better approach to early learning and care, where centres were integral parts of the communities they belonged to, while also providing high quality, individualised care for children from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds.

Today, Young Academics continues to grow and expand, providing communities with the very best in early learning programs, teaching methods, nutrition, and above all, the highest level of personal care for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years in purpose built, state of the art centres.

These centres are supported by a passionate team of early childhood experts at the Young Academics Central Hub who ensure that each centre is always implementing best practice in everything they do, from qualifications to processes and curriculum!

Young Academics is family owned and operated so family values sit at the heart of everything they do. We hope to welcome your family into the YA family soon.
