About our centre
Wonderschool Chifley is a 35-place centre located in the Sydney suburb of Chifley. Wonderschool Chifley provides children with a home-like environment rich in learning and growth opportunities.
Wonderschool Chifley offer care and education for children aged 6 weeks to school age and have developed some strong connections with the local community and school nearby. The team at Wonderschool Chifley have all been working together for a very long time and therefore have built strong relationships with each other, the children and their families.
The rooms at Wonderschool Chifley are intimate, warm and inviting. We offer a small meals area close to the kitchen where our cook provides meals from a variety of cultures.
Every day at Wonderschool is a chance for exploration, discovery, education, nurturing relationships, connecting with the environment, and being present in the moment. We encourage a sense of curiosity, intrigue and wonder through our learning experiences.
There is a separate Preschool room which focuses on children’s emotional and social wellbeing and transition to school. You and your child can find us at 40 Burke Street, Chifley NSW.
We understand your desire to stay connected with your child and keep up to date with their learning and progress. At Wonderschool, we don’t rely on technology to do this, with no apps or website updates on your child.
Our focus is on providing authentic, one-one-one assessments on your child every six months inline with The Early Years Framework (2009). Relationships are at the core of everything we do. We use moments during drop off and pick up to keep you informed of your child’s day.
We encourage ‘Morning Moments’ with your child – the chance to settle them in and join us for a light breakfast at Wonderschool Chifley before heading in different directions for the day.
