Welcome to
Ashwood Children's Centre. 

Ashwood Children's Centre believes that through access to high quality educational and care programs all children will develop their physical, social, emotional and intellectual skills. 

These programs are appropriate and responsive to the children's developmental needs and individual differences. This is achieved by fostering a team approach where the contributions and observations of parents and educators are valued and respected and input is welcomed.

Why us?

Ashwood Children's Centre is a community based, not-for-profit early childhood education and care service.  As a service, we challenge ourselves to strive towards the highest standard of practices in early childhood education and care.  Our team works hard to create a safe, nurturing environment where your child feels welcomed and cared for, and inspired to learn. We are a centre of choice for many families in our local community, and below are just some of the reasons why.
