Greenwood Frenchs Forest
Welcome to our modern, purpose-built child care centre - Greenwood Frenchs Forest. We provide child care and early education to local families living or commuting through Frenchs Forest, Beacon Hill, Allambie Heights, Oxford Falls and Narraweena. Our early learning centre is open from 07:00am – 6:00 pm for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years.
Our Frenchs Forest child care centre provides daily updates and photos, accessible on our family app.
Our child care centre in Frenchs Forest is designed to be a home away from home that encourages every child’s exploration. Our state-of-the-art, resource-rich early learning environments includes a dedicated art studio, library, STEM room, and a yoga room, and have been carefully designed to immerse your child into a world of exploration, curiosity, and learning.
In our Frenchs Forest centre, each learning space extends onto our beautiful outdoor environment, which encourages endless opportunities for play! Our outdoor environments include cubby houses, slides, sandpits, a rainbow bike track, a water play area and a vegetable garden for children to safely develop their strength, balance, and self-confidence through play-based learning.
Our team of passionate educators make up the heart of our Frenchs Forest early learning centre. We know each child has unique talents and interests. Our experienced educators are passionate about helping every child succeed in discovering their identity and become confident, happy, and resilient learners.
Play is essential to every child's learning and development. It enables children to make decisions, learn, take risks, and have fun. At our Frenchs Forest child care centre, our experienced team of educators and teachers plan play-based learning activities in line with national standards. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is designed to engage in your child’s interests and allow them to experience each day in a new way, supporting their learning in the lead-up to primary school.
Our Early Learning Curriculum also provides children with:
- Real Life experiences: Children participate in fun and exciting experiences such as woodworking, harvesting the veggie garden and basic cooking skills.
- Sustainability Program: Each age group in our child care centre participates in a sustainability project that help children embed sustainable practices into everyday life. Children learn about recycling, conserving water, growing food and the importance of looking after and protecting our planet.
- Movement program: Our movement programs have been designed to help develop fundamental skills that help support children’s self-regulation, memory, and concentration.
- Community engagement activities: Our child care centre often has visits from local community guests and emergency services in Frenchs Forest to help familiarise the children with their local community. We also have excursions to our local businesses such as Wizzy World Play Centre and to our local kids’ gym ‘My First Gym’.
Our early learning centre provides children with nutrient-rich, fresh and seasonal whole foods that meet the requirements of NSW Health's initiative "Munch and Move". For variety, our menu is seasonal, with our chef catering to the unique dietary requirements of every child.
Here at our Frenchs Forest child care centre, we believe that by encouraging active participation in food preparation (such as growing & harvesting the fruit and vegetables, preparing, and helping cook the meal) - children learn to appreciate and understand the importance of healthy eating.
For added convenience, we also offer our families a grab-and-go breakfast snack and coffee.
We look forward to partnering with you and your family to provide information, support, and high-quality early education and care in your child’s formative years.

"Our son has been at greenwood for 5 months and absolutely loves it!! He wakes up wanting to go to daycare. The Centre facilities are fantastic, the director is lovely and the onsite chef caters to my sons anaphylactic allergy so we don’t need to stress. We love the activities - yoga and French. My son has bonded well with the carers and we feel like it’s a very friendly and caring atmosphere. We would highly recommend it!!!!"
"Exceeding expectations in every way! A sparkling new centre with a genuine heart. Laura and the Greenwood team went above and beyond to help transition our family (& several others) after our previous Child Care closed with short notice and we're so glad to have made the change. All the educators are warm and engaging. They provide regular feedback and centre wide communications, plus all the extra little touches keep it personalised. We love our Greenwood family!"
"We could not be happier with this centre! Our son has been attending for nearly one year (since he was 11 months old) and the educators have always gone above and beyond to make all of us feel comfortable and at peace. Staff are amazing, from teachers, to the chef, to the centre manager, they are always ready to listen, adapt and are always very helpful. Thank you heaps to the team for the great work."
