We're an approved high-quality education and care service, provided by Lake Macquarie City Council on a not-for-profit basis since 1979.

We register a network of qualified Educators who provide small group education and care in their home environments for children aged birth to 13 years.

We have Educators registered across the Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and surrounding areas. Our education and care services are available to families living in and out of Lake Macquarie City.

Government assistance with the cost of care is available to eligible families (see enrol my child for more information).
