Rupert St Child Care Centre and Kindergarten


About the Centre

Rupert Street Child Care and Kindergarten is an oasis in the middle of a busy inner city suburb. We provide a Long Day Care Program as well as a four year old kindergarten program. Our centre has a heavy focus on healthy eating and nutrition. We are involved in Smiles for Miles, a healthy eating and oral care reward program in which educators encourage children and families to ‘drink well, eat well and clean well.

Currently, educators at our kindergarten speak English, Thai, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Cantonese, German, Spanish and Filipino. Each year, along with Cooke Court Child Care Centre, we host an annual family event with food and music, which is a great time to meet other families and children, and develop friendships and relationships.

Child Care Opening Hours

Our Long Day Care service is open from 7.00am until 6.00pm Monday to Friday.
