REGISTER YOUR INTEREST


Barnardos Australia is a not for profit charity organisation that is proud to announce the opening of our new Early Learning Centre in Ultimo. With over 100 years of experience in caring for children, we are committed to providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere that enables your child to feel safe and secure at all times.

Our dedicated staff focus on the individual needs of your child, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, because we understand that every child is unique. We want to equip them with the necessary tools to unlock their full potential. We implement a curriculum that is designed to encourage and promote active learning, social development and creative thinking.

Together, we can encourage your little learner to explore the world around them, make friends and have fun!

ABOUT OUR CENTRE

The Barnardos Early Learning Centre Ultimo is a new state of the art, purpose-built centre based at Ultimo Public School.

The new centre is a diverse, spacious and stimulating environment where your child will thrive. It has two different learning environments. Each space allows for your child’s curiosities to develop while enabling them to learn and discover at their own pace. We also have a beautiful large outdoor area, where kids can have fun and feel secure and connect with nature.

At Barnardos Early Learning Centre Ultimo, we believe in the power of learning and provide a well implemented, evidence-based curriculum for your child. All our educational programs are guided by the National Quality Framework and the Early Years Learning Framework.

Our team of qualified educators are also experienced in supporting children with additional needs.

At Barnardos Early Learning Centre each child’s individual nature and uniqueness is embraced and celebrated by our nurturing teaching team.

ALL MEALS PROVIDED

We provide nutritious meals to the children to support growing minds and bodies which are prepared to the highest standards and current health guidelines by our on-site chef. 

CONVENIENCE

Our centre welcomes children from far and wide, but as we are based at Ultimo Primary School, this provides a convenient one drop-off for parents with older siblings attending the school and allows the younger ones to familiarise themselves with the environment of the primary school for a smooth transition to ‘big school’.

CENTRE DIRECTOR
IVANA MAREE NAKHLE


I have always had a strong passion for early childhood education and I believe it is essential in setting our future generation up for the best success in their lives.


I have been educating and caring for children for the past 10 years and strongly believe that children learn, grow and thrive through an interest and play-based approach to learning. Providing a supportive and inclusive space for all children, families and communities is embedded into my personal philosophy and I believe that every child’s voice has a right to be valued and acknowledged.

At Barnardos Early Learning Centre we value family and community partnerships and will collaborate closely with you to support your child’s holistic development which includes social, cognitive, emotional, physical and language learning areas. Adhering to the Early Years Learning Framework, The Code of Ethics and the National Quality Framework, we ensure that each child is provided with an equal opportunity for a positive early childhood education experience.

WANT TO WORK FOR US?

If you are seeking employment, Barnardos Early Learning Centre Ultimo welcome expressions of interest from qualified early learning educators and teachers who are passionate about supporting children.
