A Few Words About Clyde Street
Clyde Street Early Learning Centre is a unique 27 place long day care centre nestled in a beautiful quiet cul-de-sac setting in North Bondi. The service caters to the needs of all children and families from 18 months to school age, inclusive of a school readiness program. Clyde Street, together with our local schools join together in a transition to school program.
Our educators are a team of warm, friendly, dedicated and culturally diverse Early Childhood teachers. They represent a diverse range of cultures and nationalities and are able to speak a number of different languages such as Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian, Thai, Afrikaans and Italian. We value diversity and respect inclusion, celebrating the history, culture and festivals each and everyone brings to the centre. All families are made to feel welcome and play an integral part of the Clyde Street Family. Clyde Street Early Learning Centre acknowledges the rights of the child.
Each child’s protection, progress and happiness guides everything that we do in a safe and nurturing environment. The daily curriculum reflects each child’s individual experience and uniqueness with consideration of their journey within the group. We celebrate diversity and collaborate with families to nurture the child’s understanding of their place within the wider world.
Our aim is to enhance each child’s learning and development by engaging the child as a whole in meaningful ways within a supportive, stimulating and welcoming environment where they are able to learn, develop and explore.
Whilst getting to know the child through interaction and observation we consider each child’s developmental needs and provide for their many challenging yet positive strengths based learning experiences that ignite each child’s self belief in themselves and what they are able to achieve. For the happiness of our children, families, visitors and staff we aim within Clyde Street to have a friendly home away from home. We remind each other to view ourselves daily with fresh eyes and make sure our physical environment is inviting and organised so as to spark children’s curiosity and inspire exploration, discovery and play throughout the day. Meal time and its preparation are very important to us. We believe fresh seasonal produce is best and these are reflected in our daily healthy meal plans. Clyde Street Early Learning Centre offers morning tea – which is a platter of different seasonal fruits. Lunch, – a hot meal cooked in our kitchen, comprising of a protein (meat, fish, chicken or vegetarian), a carbohydrate and loads of vegetables. Our amazing chef is able to adapt the menu to suit different dietary requirements. Munch and Move as well as the NSW Health, guide our menu planning and healthy eating habits. The backdrop for our outdoor area is a magnificent rock cliff. The playground has a large free spaced area for children to be able to develop many gross motor skills. This area also features two slides, a sandpit, cubby house and a small natural garden. A large covered deck area allows children to use this space to explore and investigate their ideas.
Our fees are all-inclusive and include an Early Childhood Education Curriculum, transition to school and readiness program for preschool aged children, qualified Early Childhood Professionals, meals, milk, nappies and sunscreen.
The classes are divided into age groups : Starfish (18 months – 3 year olds), Starfish (3 – 4 year olds) and Dolphins (4 – 5 year olds). All rooms are well ventilated and enjoy natural sunlight and are fitted with air conditioning.

What our Families are saying...
“Fabulous childcare facility - the class sizes are small and the staff give heaps of one-on-one attention to the kids. Our four year old has come on leaps and bounds since he started attending 18 months ago!“
“Great pre-school, highly recommended. My 4-year old niece started pre-school here last year and I pick her up twice a week. She loves it. It is amazing to see her develop, she talks like a real little person now!“
“I'm very thankful for what you've done for my daughter, it's been great and positive development for her learnings building her up with the standard of Clyde Street Child Care practice for their students. I highly recommend the school to my friends, family and everyone.“
