We truly believe that all children should have access to the best staff, facilities and activities for happy and healthy development.

We provide the following to ensure that you and your child are confident in all aspects of their day:

Safe, secure facilities

Our car park is secured by a boom gate ensuring registered car entrance only and entry to our building is via a keypad code.

Digital kiosks are located at the entrance of the facility, making the process of signing your children in and out of the Centre each day quick, easy and secure.

Nutritious eating

We serve shared fruit platters for morning tea and serve your home packed lunches.

We also give parents the opportunity to order fresh nutritious canteen food, giving your family the best of both worlds! View our canteen menu here.

We are an anaphylaxis aware facility and do not allow nuts or eggs on premises.

Regular reporting

We use Storypark, a secure app that provides insights to your child’s learning when and wherever you’d like to read them. Our educators not only share precious moments but also provide regular observations based on parent feedback and areas for growth. All images and video shared on the app becomes property of you, the parent, giving you peace of mind that the content won’t be shared on social media. You can invite family members to view your children’s progress if you wish.

Dance, yoga, rugby, swimming and more- all on our schedule!

Your child can take extra-curricular lessons during their day at Columba Cottage, where our educators escort them to external facilities (such as the swimming pool) on the Columba Cottage 12 seater bus. We also provide co-curricular activities such as Yoga in our rooms during the day or STEAM based Dance activities. We are located on the grounds of St Columba Anglican School (SCAS) where our children can utilise the campus oval, tennis courts, performing arts centre and organic vegetable patch for activities.

Fee assistance

Child care benefits and rebates are available to qualifying families. Aboriginal scholarships and Assistance scholarships are available (Criteria apply). Please see the Director.
