Chatswood Early Learning Centre – Magnolia Cottage has been a new development driven out of sheer passion and culminates our 45 year history in Early Learning.

We pride ourselves on our inviting learning spaces, the foundations of our philosophy, our wonderful staff, and our exuberance and passion , that we put into all that we do.

We understand how important quality care and education is, particularly in the early years and making the decision to place your child in the care of others is an important decision.

We blend the solid foundations of a contemporary early childhood program, whilst bringing forward innovation, creativity, and higher order thinking, prerequisites of the modern world we live in.

Our Creative arts program has been lovingly designed to awaken the potential of all children and to expand and inspire our future generations to develop a love of the arts, the potential to view our world through multiple lenses, to make deeper connections and to unlock the creative potential within.

Our inspirations are drawn through Reggio Emilia, who brings the 100 languages of children to life, the beauty and intentionality of the environment as the third teacher and the importance of  powerful observation and documentation as a tool of teaching and learning, whilst supporting the Early Years Learning Framework.  Our Educators are long standing,  attuned, skilled at their professions and  we speak English, Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese and French.

We are licensed for 53 children daily with 3 beautiful learning spaces, incorporating our nursery, toddler room and preschool room designed as a gallery featuring art, music drama and dance.  We have a beautiful rooftop and terrace play areas  and underground car parking. Our Program is inclusive of Dance, Music, Visual Arts, Stem  and Sports.

We welcome your interest and invite you to make a time to tour our amazing place.


All our North Shore Mums will receive a free enrolment pack upon enrolling their children worth $100.00
