Arriving at St Nicholas Early Education Centre at Cardiff, it’s hard not to feel a little envious that it wasn’t open when my own children were pre-school age. My kids would have loved the incredible outdoor play area which immediately sparks children’s imaginations and allows endless possibility for play.
One of the wonderful advantages of having St Nicholas Early Education located on the same site as a primary school is the connections that are made. The St Nicholas Early Education centres in Singleton, Lochinvar and Chisholm are all close to the local Catholic primary school and can take advantage of the many opportunities available to build community.
Residents and visitors to Lochinvar will know that there has been a lot of work happening in recent months with a new St Nicholas Early Education Centre being constructed and landscaping around St Patrick’s Catholic Church taking shape.
Long-time residents of Cardiff and its surrounding suburbs would have noticed big changes over recent years within the shopping precinct.
Congratulations to St Nicholas Early Education, Newcastle West for being named one of the three best child care centres in Newcastle by the website Three Best Rated. The dedication and professionalism of staff, the exceptional learning environment and the play-based curriculum have clearly been recognised and acknowledged by our wonderful St Nick’s families.
The Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle is has achieved a major milestone this month by opening two new early education centres under the St Nicholas Early Education banner in 2018.
Since the beginning of the year staff in the Learning Lions room at St Nicholas Early Education, Singleton, have encouraged children to demonstrate small acts of kindness towards their friends and carers each day. Our aim in promoting kindness was not only for the children to show kindness and compassion within our centre but to spread kindness into our community.
