Child Care for Camden, Elderslie and Spring farm

Camden Cottage Child Care Centre is a family owned and operated child care centre in Camden. We all know that you are the best person to look after your child, but our friendly and professional team is here to provide the very best of care for your child for those times when you just can't be there.

We cater for children aged 2 years to 5 years in our preschool program and 5 years to 12 years in our before and after school programs.

Our team

Our team consists of qualified, experienced, dependable and caring staff who will ensure your child has everything they need to be happy and settled and enjoy their time with us. We are also committed to providing your child with the very best in terms of development and education. We have a strong centre focus and specialise in kindergarten readiness.

We have a warm, traditional feel to our centre and take pride in the fact that our environment is educating yet homelike. This applies to both inside and outside areas, as our outdoor environment is natural, with a lawn, trees and places for children to explore.

Our program

At Camden Cottage Child Care Centre, our specialised program has been designed to provide your child with the very best in development and learning. It covers essentials such as:

  • Personal and dental hygiene
  • Environmental awareness
  • Road and water safety
  • Numeracy
  • Literacy and development curriculum
  • Pre-reading and writing skills

Our centre director holds a Bachelor of Teaching Early Childhood and has over 20 years’ experience working with children. With such high professional standing behind us, you know your children are in good hands at  Camden Cottage Child Care Centre.

Where Camden Cottage began:

Camden Cottage was created in 2001 from a discussion around the family dinner table. The Director wanted to create a preschool environment that educated the children and provided each child with positive, memorable preschool years like she had.

Family owned and operated and a member of management is at the preschool each day.

Management only own one centre which enables us to focus primarily on the children and families utilising the service. We are not a large corporate company, where your child is just another number!
