Our History - Young Academics
five new locations coming soon



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. Young Academics was founded in 2009

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.
