Angel Cottage Childcare Centre

0 - 2 Year Olds

Centre Overview
Angel Cottage is located at 1 Gore Street, Parramatta (adjacent to Angel Babies) Angel Cottage is a Cottage home that was converted into an early learning centre 30 years ago, and has been owned by Angels Childcare since 1999. The centre has polished floors, ornate ceiling and stained glass windows and doors.
Angel Cottage is a small centre catering for 29 children per day. The centre has been very popular because of the small class sizes. The centre caters for children aged 2-6 years.

Angel Cottage caters for all dietary requirements and cultural preferences. We provide vegetarian, halal, gluten free, soy alternatives for lactose intolerance and all dietary needs for the children. Any dietary requirements can be discussed with our qualified cook to provide a menu that suits your child.

Our pre-school program is comprehensive and tailored to your child’s needs. We do daily group observations, monthly learning stories about your child and collect photos and important developmental information about your child which we email to each family to keep you up to date with your child’s progress.

The program explores school readiness and covers all developmental areas. The children learn writing and reading skills. They learn skills to develop friendships and adjust to new environments such as big school. The program is aimed to prepare children for the changes of entering primary school and giving them a head start in their education. Our philosophy of learning is an emphasis of learning through play.

We follow the principles of the Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality Framework. Our program is based on encouraging learning through the children’s interests and strengths in small or large groups, or one on one interaction.

We encourage family and community input into our program which includes visits from the animal farm, shows, puppet shows, jumping castles, recycle talks, worm farm, police visit, fire engine visit, doctor, nurse or dentist visit and other community visits throughout the year. Parents are always welcome to participate in our program.

Angel Cottage has been in high demand because of its close proximity to Parramatta CBD and public transport. Angel Cottage is a 15 minute walk from Parramatta station and a 5 minute walk from the river cat. It would take approximately 10 minutes to walk to the heart of Parramatta and about a 5 minute walk to Victoria Rd where buses stop at the end of the street.
