Terrigal School Care has been providing quality school age education and care for more than 20 years. We are very proud to have been assessed by the Department of Education as an Exceeding service in all seven quality areas. As a not for profit, we are dedicated to reinvesting all profits into the children we care for.
The Centre employs highly qualified and experienced Educators who are dedicated to supporting your child to develop a strong sense of identity, wellbeing, and belonging. We provide an educational program with activities that support the developmental needs of each age group. Throughout the year we offer specialist programs such as keyboard piano, dancing, tutoring, yoga, and more.
Each day the Centre serves a nutritious breakfast and afternoon tea that keeps children full of energy to use playing, learning, and exploring. Healthy eating
We understand that children are individuals with identities, beliefs, cultures, interests, and needs. At Terrigal School Care we celebrate diversity and champion inclusion. Every child deserves the opportunity to fully engage and participate safely in education and care. Every child deserves to be given the chance to grow and develop into active members of the community. Facilitating this is our primary goal
We recognise that each child is unique and special in their own way; with their own beliefs, religion, cultures and needs that make them the individuals they are. At Terrigal School Care we celebrate diversity and inclusion, encourage involvement and participation for each child.
