Gowrie NSW Erskineville is a quality, not-for-profit childcare centre. We cater for children 6 weeks to 6 years and draw on our organisation's rich history of educating and caring for children since 1940.

Our Philosophy

Every child brings with them unique strengths, capabilities, culture, interests, knowledge, ideas and experiences. To enable children to reach their fullest potential, we provide the highest quality of care through enhancing all areas of growth and development in a warm caring home like environment.

Key Educator Approach

In the first three years of life we endeavour to ensure all children have a primary caregiver which closely nurtures each child throughout these critical years. Our emphasis and commitment to working towards key educator relationships promotes continuity, consistency and nurturing relationships between educators and children both individually and in small groups.

How we encourage capable learners:

  • A unique indoor environment rich in natural resources and promotes learning, curiosity and adventure
  • Large outdoor play area featuring natural gardens, climbing structures, natural play equipment, sand-pits and water play
  • A broad curriculum of literacy, numeracy, language, art, music, social skills, sport, sustainability and much more
  • Nutritionally balanced meals catering for all children’s dietary needs, prepared using the freshest ingredients
  • A team of dedicated and passionate educators implement a high quality educational experience in a nurturing, stimulating and supportive environment
