Smeaton Grange Preschool & Child Care
A Bit About Us
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. The inter-connected rooms allow children to visit with 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.
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 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.
