Harris Park (Opening 2019)
Harris Park Child Care Centre
Due to open in 2019, this exceptional childcare centre is situated on the grounds of Our Lady of Lebanon Co-Cathedral and will feature excellent indoor and outdoor learning environments to create a start of the art early learning centre, built specifically to inspire a love of learning in children aged 6 weeks to 6 years.
The early learning rooms are bright and airy and will feature an abundance of innovative, age appropriate and modern resources handpicked specifically to complement our early learning program – Evolution. The outdoor area will flow directly from the early learning rooms and have been designed specifically for nursery/toddler and preschool children and feature a bike track, water play area, sandpit and natural play areas. This enables an extended early learning space and allows a seamless transition between inside and outside play.
Conveniently located on the grounds of Our Lady of Lebanon Co-Cathedral with ample parking available on site, making drop off and pick up easy. The centre is also located close to Parramatta and CBD transit links. Family owned and operated with community and family at the heart of what we do. Optional Religious Education Program will be offered at this location.
If you wish to have your child’s name added to the waitlist, please call 1300 668 993.
To make sure you don’t miss out, add your family to our free waitlist or jump onto our Facebook and Instagram pages, that way you’ll never miss an update from us and you’ll be first in line to tour the centre when we open it to families!
We know that each child is a unique individual and we tailor our Evolution program to ensure they receive a holistic approach to early learning focused on providing developmental, emotional and social support.
Our fundamental philosophy is built on the learning outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and our daily program is divided into 7 key guaranteeing children or all ages receive a well-rounded education.
Our Young Academics centres each have a unique learning environment, built to reflect the locality and the community around them. Each centre is architecturally designed with state of the art facilities and landscapes with a focus on bringing the natural environment in.

WHY YOUNG ACADEMICS?
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.
As a family, everything is taken care of as soon as you walk through the centre doors. We provide each child with nappies, wipes, linen, sunscreen, 5 delicious meals, superior facilities and resources, dedicated and engaged educators and a world class daily program focusing on overall wellness, filled with lots of time for fun and exploration.
Our comprehensive offering provides families with peace of mind knowing that their child will be wonderfully taken care of and immersed in educational experiences from the moment they arrive, to the moment they leave the centre.
And while we pride ourselves on our excellent facilities and learning programs, it’s our team that really sets us apart. We strongly believe that great childcare comes from great educators. That is 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 we know that families and the children in our care feel the difference.
We look forward to welcoming your family into our family!
Trust is everything in childcare, and we work hard to earn it. Whether we’re communicating with families or with each other, we’re truthful, respectful and responsive.
We love looking after children – it’s that simple. It’s what drives us to ensure we’re always implementing best practice in everything we do, from qualifications to processes and curriculum. There’s no place for cutting corners!
Always on the front foot, we’re constantly seeking ways to improve what we do. Just like your children, we’re always learning, growing, adapting and evolving.
We want Young Academics to feel like a home away from home, so we keep family values at the heart of everything we do. It’s about closeness, trust, unity and teamwork.
