Kids Club Clarence St is dedicated to providing a warm and nurturing environment for children aged from 6 weeks – 5 years. Our experienced and caring Educators give children ample opportunities to develop a love of learning that will stay with them for life. The play-based approach to learning is designed to foster children’s social, emotional, and cognitive development, preparing them for lifelong learning. With a strong focus on relationship-building, children feel supported and encouraged to explore their world. Families can rest assured that their child is receiving high-quality care and education in a safe and welcoming environment at Kids Club Clarence St.

Located in the heart of Sydney’s CBD, the centre is conveniently located at the north end of the CBD, right at the exit of Wynyard Train Station, with 15 minutes of underground parking available for easy pick up and drop off. With its central location and accessibility by public transport or car, it’s easy for families to drop off and pick up their children. The centre’s commitment to high-quality care and education makes it a top choice for families in the Sydney CBD.

 

 

Start Strong

 

When children participate in structured, play-based learning before they start school, they build key social, emotional and cognitive skills necessary to support lifelong learning. This is especially important for children experiencing vulnerability and disadvantage, who benefit the most from preschool. That is why Kids Club Clarence St is proud to partner with NSW Government to bring the Start Strong initiative to the centre.

If your child turns 4 years old on or before 31 July 2024, you may save up to $2,110 this year in eligible preschool programs in long day care. If your child is 3 years old and not yet 4 years on, or before 31 July 2024, you may save up to $500 this year in eligible preschool programs in long day care.

This will be in addition to the Australian Government Child Care Subsidy payments, which most families in long day care services are eligible to receive.

All-inclusive at Kids Club Childcare

"The chef makes amazing meals on site for the children that I’m tempted to dump my lunch, so I can eat with them! What I also love is their breastfeeding friendly premises. Because I work close enough, I am able to go in each day to give my daughter a breastfeed. "

"So many lovely things about Kids Club. The staff are top notch, each one is genuinely interested in all the kids and the care and affection shown is blatantly obvious. Facilities are top notch and encourage the kids to learn and explore. Food is prepared on site daily and I sometimes think the kids are eating better meals than us while attending Kids Club! Can't gush about it enough, we've been super happy with our experience there so far."

Child Care Subsidy

The Australian Government provides families with financial assistance to help cover the costs of approved child care – the Child Care Subsidy.

Since 2 July 2018, Australia has a new child care package. Under the new package, the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) replaces the existing Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate. CCS is the main way the Government assists families with their child care fees.

Child Care Subsidy Net Fee Calculator

We have developed a Child Care Subsidy Net Fee Calculator, to give you an idea of how much your out of pocket costs are after the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) has been applied at your nominated Kids Club centre. Click here to go to the Kids Club Child Care Subsidy Calculator

Preparing for the First Week

The transition for children into child care is an important milestone for children and families. This transition can be challenging and emotional for both the parent and the child. Therefore, we offer you this information to help the transition process.

We invite families to come for orientation the week before they start: stay in the centre with your child, meet the Educators and make yourself familiar with the routines prior to your child’s first day. This assists you and your children to feel more at ease and comfortable with the new environment.
