Hawkesbury River Child Care

Welcome to Hawkesbury River Child Care Centre

Hawkesbury River Child Care welcomes you to our centre.

We provide the following types of care:

  • Quality long day care and occasional care for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years old.

  • Before and after school care for children aged up to 12 years old.

We are located within the grounds of Brooklyn Public School. Our children enjoy a natural environment surrounded by bush, sandstone cliffs and the Hawkesbury River.

Hawkesbury River Child Care is a community based, non-profit organisation, managed by a voluntary parent management committee in cooperation with staff and the local community.

Many of our children come from the local area, including Brooklyn, Mooney Mooney and Dangar Island. We are conveniently located 5 minutes from the F3 freeway for families travelling from the Central Coast or Berowra and surrounding suburbs.

Quality care for your child

Hawkesbury River Child Care has been in operation since 1990. We provide quality long day care and occasional care for children 0-6 years and before and after school care for children aged 5 to 12 years.

We welcome parents asking questions and making recommendations, suggestions and criticisms. At Hawkesbury River Child Care, parents have the opportunity to be involved in the program that affects their child.

We invite children to grow into sensitive, caring members of their communities. We actively foster links between the centre and Brooklyn Public School and other community organisations.

Staff members are also encouraged to continually update their skills and knowledge in the childcare profession. Our staff members are educated and have a genuine love for children and their wellbeing.

We take pride in our centre and look forward to welcoming your family to Hawkesbury River Child Care.
