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.
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 2023, you will save up to $2,110 a year in eligible preschool programs in long day care.
This will be in addition to Australian Government Child Care Subsidy payments, which most families in long day care services are eligible to receive.
Kids Club centres provide absolutely everything your child needs to be comfortable all day, making the transition from home to daycare much easier. Check the video below to see everything included in your fees.
We transition children in our rooms based on their developmental needs.
Our daily fees are based on your child’s age group, they are all-inclusive: you will not have to pay any extra costs.

At Kids Club we have certain room routines that educators follow. The routine will vary, depending on current events and activities. Having a routine in each of the rooms allows for smoother transitions into new activities, meals and rest time. The routine is available to families so you are aware of what your child is doing at certain times.
The day starts with family grouping sessions where breakfast is served. Here is when you can say goodbye to your little one. After breakfast, your child has time to play and learn at their own pace.
At this time of the morning, other children are still arriving, so the educators offer children different activities to engage in. The activities are purposefully selected to encourage our learning through play framework.
We then begin to transition into morning tea. After washing their hands your child will sit down where they choose and be served morning tea from the menu. If your child has dietary requirements they will be served an alternate meal.
Depending on the weather, your child will be offered to play indoors/outdoors for free playtime. This is where educators can make observations of what your child likes to do. During this time we also hold group activities with the children.
From 12 pm we begin to transition to lunchtime. Once your child’s hands are washed they will choose a seat where a hot lunch will be served to them. If your child has dietary requirements they will be served an alternate meal.
Sleep or rest time after lunch your child will have a rest in a peaceful tranquil room with educators patting if requested. If your child does not require sleep, they will take part in quiet activities such as reading.
After your child wakes up, afternoon tea will be served. If your child has dietary requirements they will be served an alternate meal. We encourage our toddlers and preschoolers to serve themselves their own afternoon tea.
Depending on the weather, your child will be offered to play indoors/outdoors for free playtime. This is where educators can make observations of what your child likes to do and prepare for future planned experiences based on interests.
Planned afternoon learning experiences. During this time we will engage your child in activities that are slightly more structured and educator-led. For example, yoga classes, painting lessons, group play and group learning moments.

"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. "Winnie, Kids Club Clarence Street Parent
"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."Amy, Kids Club Clarence St Parent

Thank you so much for everything you done for my son."Tamana, Kids Club Clarence Street Parent

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.

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.
