Greenwood Rose Bay is boutique style Centre catering specifically for children aged 2-6 years, located just across the road from Rose Bay Public School on the Corner of Newcastle Street and Albemarle Avenue.
Welcome to your beautiful Centre!
The official entrance to the Centre is from Albermarle Avenue, up a few steps (or via our accessible ramp) to our foyer. Here you will also find the open plan kitchen where you will see and smell our delicious menu being prepared by our qualified chef. What’s on the menu for today? A quick glance at our blackboard will tell you exactly what your child will be enjoying. We provide five meals daily – breakfast, morning tea, a hot lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. The kitchen is also a great place for Parents to pick up an iced tea or a snack before heading out!
Converting a Heritage Home
Greenwood Rose Bay is a conversion from a heritage property and our team of Architects were very excited to incorporate the existing period features into the designs of our rooms. Bright, airy and homely we can’t get enough of the bay windows, pressed tin ceilings and french doors! To enhance the internal spaces each room will flow out onto a deck with shade covering, providing a seamless connection to the gardens and outdoor play spaces that surround the property, allowing for indoor and outdoor learning experiences.
Early Learners (2-3 year olds)
Turn right off the central corridor and you are in the environment of the Early Learners! A large room with indivdiual learning corners, this ocean themed room is designed for 24 children with 3 experienced Educators to facilitate group and individual learning experiences as part of the Greenwood Curriculum.
With their own separate, colourful bathrooms, this is a fun and positive space to support children in the process of toilet training if required. Find out what a typical day in the Early Learners room looks like.
Preschool 1 (3-4 year olds)
An adventure like no other, this room inspires our little explorers to travel the big, wide world! Our dedicated Pre-Kinder Program is implemented throughout every day that your child attends Greenwood. Designed to address key aspects of your child’s development such as early literacy and early numeracy, our proven program will ensure that your child possesses the necessary skills to make a successful transition to Primary School.
The introduction of iPad Kiosks in our Preschool rooms also allows our Educators to extend on the children’s learning and help prepare them for the digital world.
Preschool 1 hosts 18 of our most enthusiastic learners and 2 experienced Educators will facilitate an interactive, positive learning environment to encourage your child to become a confident individual. Learn more about what a typical day in our Preschool room looks like.
Preschool 2 (4-6 year olds)
Designed to inspire your Preschooler’s imagination to take flight – our sky themed room incorporates planes, hot air balloons and colourful kites! A particular focus of this room is to prepare our senior Preschoolers to start Primary School. Key goals are to ensure that each child successfully starts school with confidence – our role is to develop the foundations for lifelong learning by helping to encourage skills and abilities which assist in effective learning. In addition we will provide a transitional learning environment to help familiarise your child with typical school routines, tasks and expectations.

Outdoor Play Areas
We are thrilled to announce that Greenwood Rose Bay’s outdoor areas have been designed by the very talented Matt Woods, who along with being a winner of IDEA’s Designer of the Year Award also shares Greenwood’s passion for sustainability.
Rose Bay is a very special development as it is designed specifically for 2-6 year olds and Matt’s plan takes into account their physical capabilities whilst providing a stimulating outdoor learning environment that will flow seamlessly from our indoor spaces.
