Providing child focused, play based programs
North Ryde, NSW 2113Banksia Cottage was established by a committee of dedicated staff members of Macquarie University who needed childcare services on campus. The centre is open 8:00 am to 6:15 pm, Monday to Friday, 50 weeks per year. We cater to 80 children from 6 weeks old to 5 years old. Our philosophy has five core principles that guide our relationships with all stakeholders and the wider community. Each of the principles complements each other and has the same importance as the other. These principles are: education is transformative, social justice is tangible, challenge by questioning, trust matters, and critical reflection leads to ongoing improvement. Our programs are child focused, play based and reflective of current research; children's learning is facilitated, guided and extended by our experienced team of educators. The indoor and the outdoor spaces are both considered to be learning areas.
