Outside School Hours Care

Welcome to Gowrie NSW Kinross Wolaroi

Gowrie NSW is committed to excellence and strives to make a lasting impact on children’s lives. We are proud of our long tradition of providing high quality play-based education and care for children and their families. 80 years on from the opening of one of Australia’s first early childhood centres, Gowrie NSW remains a trusted leader in early childhood education.

At Gowrie NSW your child will find an engaging, educational and developmental play-based learning experience. This will help your child to learn and grow, while having the time of their lives.

Gowrie NSW offers before and after school care as well as vacation care programs. Your child will benefit from our 80 years of experience and dedication to empower and support children and families through the guidance of our world-class educators.

Commitment to Safety

Our first priority is the health and safety of all children, staff and families. With this in mind we have a number of procedures in place at all of our programs including; head counts, walkie talkies, no show fee, mandatory training for all educators and quality care.

Engaging Program

We provide a fun and engaging program which is age appropriate and varied. Our programs use the ‘My Time, Our Place’ curriculum framework which is built around children’s social and emotional development.

This is further supported by the ‘Program Foundations’ which is a pedagogical guide for practice created by Gowrie NSW in conjunction with leading early and middle childhood professionals from the sector.

Nutritious Food

Explorers and adventurers need to keep their minds and bodies fuelled and growing. At Gowrie NSW we offer a healthy, nutritious afternoon tea to keep your child focused on discovery. We align our menu with the Australian Healthy Eating and Dietary Guidelines which are reviewed by a nutritionist.
