About Us

The Centre

CityWest Child Care Centre is an Early Learning Centre located at 132 Bank Street, Pyrmont: next door to the Channel 10 building. Parents commuting to the city over the Anzac Bridge simply take the Fish Markets exit.

We cater for children between the ages of 6 weeks and 6 years, between the hours of 7.30 a.m. and 6.30 p.m., Monday to Friday, 50 weeks per year.

At CityWest Child Care Centre we seek to provide a warm nurturing environment where children can explore and experiment with a variety of carefully selected resources and experiences in a supportive, confidence building atmosphere, that promotes the principles of early childhood development and care.

Our Philosophy

We believe, "The central role of early childhood education is the foundation for life long learning"

Our philosophy and educational vision of "nurture and grow" is based on the inherent value of each child as an individual who grows and develops in a secure and nurturing environment, which stimulates appropriate  social, moral, intellectual and cultural understandings and promotes positive self-image.

Centre Management

The centre is privately owned and managed by Webster & Jones Investments Pyt Ltd. We are experienced childcare operators having spent 15 years in long day care management. We have a genuine commitment to the provision of quality care. The protection and development of the chidlren in our care are our highest priority.
