A bit about
This state of the art centre has been custom designed and built specifically for the development of children aged 6 weeks to 6 years.
The early learning rooms are bright and spacious with dedicated learning spaces integrated into each room, encouraging small group learning and play. The inter-connected rooms allow children to visit siblings and friends throughout the day creating a community like feel within the centre.
The outdoor area extends from the early learning rooms and features a cubby house, sandpit and expansive green lawn backing onto a heritage protected creek, allowing children to interact with the constantly changing natural environment right in front of them.
Located just off Camden Valley Way and Narellan Road, this centre has ample off-street parking for families, making drop off and pick up easy.
If you would like to have your child’s name added to the waitlist or to book a tour of the centre, please call 1300 668 993.
The five spacious and modern early learning rooms have been designed specifically to not only facilitate our bespoke early learning curriculum Evolution, but also to create a sense of community and togetherness with their inter-connected design.
The spacious and playful outdoor provides children with ample room to run, explore, play and discover, whilst the beautiful heritage protected creek, located at the back of the centre, is an ever-changing landscape, providing children with a first-hand experience you just can’t beat!
This centre recently underwent Assessment and Rating to determine how well the service meets the National Quality Standard and National Regulations. The Smeaton Grange centre achieved an overall rating of ‘Exceeding’, indicating that the service exceeds the National Quality Standard.
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. Our centres are open Monday to Friday, 52 weeks of the year (except for gazetted public holidays).

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!
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.
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 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!
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.
