North Ryde Child Care Centre

Innovative Early Learning and Preschool in North Ryde

At 360 Early Education’s North Ryde child care centre, we prioritise high-quality, innovative childcare, focusing on holistic development through play-based learning and educator-guided activities. Our North Ryde Preschool is located in Triniti Business Park, Stockland, in a serene suburb of NSW, surrounded by vibrant greenery and the calmness of the local environment, creating an ideal setting for children to flourish and explore.

Our childcare programs, rooted in the Early Years Learning Framework, cater to each child’s unique journey, emphasising social, emotional, and cognitive growth. We extend learning beyond traditional settings, integrating current research and outdoor experiences to foster community connections and personal development.

Our collaborative efforts with local universities and commitment to evidence-based practices ensure our North Ryde daycare remains at the forefront, benefiting children, families, and educators alike. Through initiatives like Bush School and Swim School, we aim to build resilience, reduce stress, and enhance learning, preparing our young learners for a bright future.

Business Hours


7.30am – 6.00pm

We operate for 50 weeks of the year and close down for two weeks over the Christmas period and on Public Holidays.


Exceeding National Quality Standards

The service has maintained the highest possible accreditation rating ‘Exceeding National Quality Standards’ as awarded by the NSW Department of Education, over 12 years.


Family-owned and Operated Daycare in North Ryde

The reason our we have been able to maintain the highest possible accreditation over such a long period of time is that we are a family owned and operated organisation with a management team that has been in place for the better part of a decade.


Beyond the Classroom curriculum

By engaging an Outdoor Learning Coordinator and a minibus, this allows us to provide valuable experiences in the greater outdoors. All age groups travel on excursions to discover that we belong to a wider community, allowing us to build relationships with local initiatives and services. Key programs include Bush School and Swim School.


Collaboration with Macquarie University

A number of university-led studies are conducted in the teaching rooms throughout the year to inform centre practices and to evolve our teaching programs. Past studies include the Social-emotional competence of Mandarin Speaking Immigrant Children in Australian Childcare, Working Parents and Quality of Life, Children’s Language Acquisition and Understanding of Plurals.


Collaboration with the Benevolent Society

A charity that collaborated with the service to launch the ‘Dads and the importance of Rough & Tumble Play’ workshop. These workshops are designed to encourage fathers to engage in physical play with their child and to recognise the neurological benefits that arise from this.


Collaboration with the Imagination Library

The Imagination Library is a multi-national initiative that seeks to raise literacy levels in disadvantaged communities by providing free books to children from birth to 5 years. This foundation provides the centre with books each month as part of the centre’s literacy program. The centre actively fundraises for the Imagination Library throughout the year.


Parent Committee

A body of families with children enrolled at the centre that aims to strengthen the centre’s community ties.  They manage our fundraising events and provide feedback on innovations and initiatives in programming, physical environments and centre celebrations


0 - 2 Years

Our priority in the baby room is ensuring consistency between each baby’s home life and their time at the service. We also place strong emphasis on strong attachments and the consistency of educators. As children progress between teaching rooms from birth to 3 years old, we aim to ensure that the same group of educators will remain with the same group of children.

Furthermore, we follow a primary carer model; educators are assigned a specific set of children to nurture more closely throughout the day. By maintaining consistency, we acknowledge that attachment is a fundamental ingredient for healthy brain development. Strong attachments lead to a strong sense of identity and a sense of security, which increases the willingness to explore and learn.

Our North Ryde early learning fees are inclusive of morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, late snack, nappies, and sunscreen.


2 - 3 Years

Our toddler room provides a tangible hands-on approach, with engaging routines utilising real-life resources that allow toddlers to discover how the world works and how and where they fit in.

We understand that toddlerhood is a time rich in transitions, and we strive to support families and children as these skills emerge and expand at our childcare in North Ryde.

Our toddlers have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities, including our Beyond the Classroom Curriculum, Munch Masterclasses, and Imagination Library Literacy Program.

Our fees are inclusive of morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, late snack, nappies, and sunscreen.


3 - 5 Years

We provide children with:

  • School Readiness Program covering kindergarten Key Learning Areas
  • Mindfulness Program (MindUP!) to nurture pro-social skills and social-emotional competence
  • Beyond the Classroom curriculum involving excursion programs, Bush School and Swim School
  • Imagination Library Literacy Program

Our fees are inclusive of morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, late snack, nappies, and sunscreen.


Outdoor Environment

The outdoor area of our North Ryde day care centre consists of two playgrounds, both with an abundance of natural elements to foster the children’s appreciation of nature and the outdoors. The nursery playground (for 0–2 years) is a dedicated space for babies to safely explore outside as they become more confident in their gross-motor skills. Highlights of this area include a mini-mud kitchen and sandpit.

The older age groups (over two years old) enjoy a larger space to support a variety of physical activities and risky play. Children are invited to undertake risks by navigating themselves through the tree stumps and rocky terrain. Other highlights of the preschool playground include our large rock pit and campfire space.

Gardening is also a large component of our outdoor program. We have a thriving herb and vegetable garden where we are growing seasonal produce. We also have a succulent garden and a worm farm. The children are very enthusiastic about maintaining our gardens and enjoy helping their educators water the plants, collect dry leaves, and trim the hedges. They also routinely take care of resident and visiting animals; the children create bird feeders for the local birds and use their leftover food scraps to sustain our worm farm.
