Westmead
Early Education Centre

Westmead Early Education Centre is an architecturally designed purpose-built centre and features a Preschool Centre and an Early Learning Centre. The Early Learning Centre is located at 108 Railway Street, Wentworthville and is a beautifully renovated and expanded cottage with a natural garden learning environment.  Our Early Learners experience a home-like atmosphere with two small groups of children (aged between 6 weeks to 3 years) and high educator/child ratios ensuring individual care and learning.

The Preschool Centre located at 106 Railway Street, provides a preschool program with high educator/child ratios for children aged 3 to 6 years. There are two learning groups within our preschool with spacious and well-resourced facilities including a separate dining room where our fresh healthy meals are prepared and served by our in-house cook. Our huge outdoor garden learning environment is our ‘wow’ factor with many children referring to it as the “park”.

Our caring educators place an emphasis on developing positive and trusting relationships with the children and their families and encourage family feedback and participation continually in our programs. We would like to invite you to visit Westmead Early Education Centre to see and experience the difference.

Our Son Zayne is raised so well with all the quality education, excellent curriculum, regular parent teacher interaction and I must say I feel so proud to see him grow so well amidst the quality services we got.I also wanted to highlight the leadership style Sultana executes with such high-level professionalism and a positive attitude. In the last 3 years, there isn’t any day that she hasn’t greeted me or my wife with a smile. Even though she is busy at times, she makes a point to stop, listen and answer our queries. I have no doubt that this attitude is passed on to all other staff who inspire each other, I see staff committed and passionate & demonstrate unparalleled creativity and innovation in their day to day activities that our children benefit from. Thank you, Sultana and all the extended staff.
