Our son has attended NECCC for the last 4 years and from the first time I visited, I knew I wanted to get him into this centre. The staff are so warm and caring and the environment is very carefully considered to give children as many opportunities as possible to learn, explore and (most importantly) play! It’s hard being away from my little boy but it’s made so much easier knowing that the staff genuinely care for the children and their well-being, providing activities relating to their particular interests and nurturing their friendships with each other.  Our son loves his ‘teachers’ and is very sad about having to leave them to go to school. We love everything about the centre and can’t recommend it highly enough.

My little man has been attending North East Community Children’s Centre since August and has settled so amazingly into the Joey Room. Morning drop offs are a breeze, as he is always excited to come here, reaching out for any educator from the Joey team. Whilst attending here, I have had full confidence that my little man is not only safe, but is eating well, sleeping well and most importantly learning and having fun whilst doing it. I can’t praise enough the team here at North East for their commitment to making not only my little man, but all children feel safe, secure and supported. I absolutely love this service and everyone involved in making this environment so welcoming.

High quality service with excellent, committed, long-term educators. The non-profit and child-centered care philosophies are evident in everything they do. Everyone is really approachable, they listen to parent feedback and are always looking for small and big ways to improve the service. Great yards and food. Our daughter has been there for 2 and a half years and loves it. We also love that there is no charge for public holidays or nappies, food etc.


My daughter attended NECCC for 2.5 years prior to starting pre-school and we had a wonderful experience. The staff are thoughtful and caring, and we couldn’t have hoped for more in a childcare centre. We cherish the time our daughter spent there during her early years of life.


My daughter and now my son have attended here. They flourished and grew through the amazing educators (whom show longevity and loyalty), awesome environment and enriching experiences provided. Such a wonderful centre that really do treat your kids so beautifully.

And the food! My kiddos love it (and i love they get a great, healthy, varied diet 👌😊

Both my children have attended NECCC over the last 7 years. I could not be happier with my choice of centre. The staff are very experienced and so committed to nurturing each child’s interests. The natural outdoor spaces are amazing.


My daughter is so happy attending this facility. Since moving to this child care. It’s been the best thing we have done. She is much happier. Everytime we leave the carpark, she says to me, mummy I’m happy. That to me is everything. The staff have been amazing, friendly and care for each kid. Highly recommend.


My daughter attended this childcare and I cannot recommend this Children’s centre enough. The team here all work together to create a lovely atmosphere for the children to thrive. If you have a child around the area, I highly recommend you check this centre out. The team has greatly supported my daughter into a loving and confident person. Thank you Nikki for being there to provide the nurturing attention for our little girl.
