North Rocks Community (Uniting) Church Preschool Has offered families a supportive and creative learning environment for over 45 years. The Preschool aims to nurture and provide quality care and learning opportunities for children within the Christian tradition.  We are proud to have been accredited with a rating of Exceeding the National Quality standard for provision of early childhood education.

We are a non-profit organisation formed and operated by parents, church members and experienced staff. Our exciting and creative curriculum is child-directed, hands-on, developmentally challenging and fun. We aim to provide individualised attention, a safe environment, and many opportunities for creative expression.

The Preschool has a unique bushland setting safely tucked away behind the church.   The Preschool operates from 8.00am - 3.30pm and caters for up to 24 children daily between the ages of 3 and 5 years. Contact us for more information.

The Children's House Montessori School is situated in the leafy suburb of North Ryde adjacent to the beautiful bushland of Pryor Park. It has been established there for 18 years.

The preschool is a community based, not-for-profit organisation that welcomes parent input. By helping in whatever way possible, parents are closer to their child’s school environment, they aware of the needs and dynamics of the school and importantly can help to keep costs down.

Our Montessori preschool provides a three-year program for children aged 3-6 years. For the first two years, children attend a half-day session of three and one half hours each day for five days per week. During the third year or “when children are eligible to attend kindergarten”, the children attend the school for an additional two and one half hours each day. In the kindergarten year, everything learned in the previous two years is consolidated and self-confidence, leadership and responsibility are developed .We also offer Extended Hours for 3 and 4 year old children up to 3.30 pm each day.

We run parent toddler sessions Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 am to 11am.   We encourage you to observe a class in action. Please phone Denise on 98890400 to make an appointment or to find out more please contact us The Children’s House Montessori School

Hearty Health 
With the 30 June only weeks away, now is a good time to start looking at ways to streamline your budget while still providing delicious and nutritious meals to the children in your centre.

Our research shows that by using Hearty Health to cater for the children and staff in Child Care Centres, food related expenses are dramatically reduced and the working environment is more harmonious and relaxed. 

Hearty Health meals are fresh, nutritious and enjoyed by both children and staff.  A new Hearty Health four week rotating menu is created for each season of the year, while all food allergies and cultural preferences are catering for easily without any child missing out.   

The Hearty Health Winter Menu has just been released with highlights including our warm hearty casserole, winter vegetable pasta and of course our popular beef cottage pie.   

We welcome you to talk to one of our friendly team on ways you can reduce food related expenses in your centre or to sample our new Hearty Health Winter Menu.

Contact our friendly Hearty Health Team at email or call us on 1300 728 762


Transitioning to the new Child Care Subsidy
From 2 July 2018, one new Child Care Subsidy will replace the two current child care payments.  This transition cannot happen automatically.

To transition, you will need to complete an online Child Care Subsidy assessment using your Centrelink online account through myGov.

You will be asked to provide some new information and confirm your current details, including:

Combined family income
Activity level of parents
Type of child care service

If families do not complete their assessment before 2 July 2018, they may not receive any child care fee assistance.

Child Care Subsidy
The Package includes a new Child Care Subsidy, which replaces the current Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate. The Child Care Subsidy will be paid directly to services.

There are also changes to the annual cap which will make child care more affordable for most families.

Three things will determine a family’s level of Child Care Subsidy:

A family’s income will determine the percentage of subsidy they are eligible for
An activity test will determine how many hours of subsidised care families can access, up to a maximum of 100 per fortnight, and
The type of child care service will determine the hourly rate cap.

More information about individual subsidy rates and annual cap changes is available in the New Child Care Package brochure.
Some basic requirements must be satisfied for an individual to be eligible to receive Child Care Subsidy for a child. These include:

the age of the child (must be 13 or under and not attending secondary school)
the child meeting immunisation requirements
the individual, or their partner, meeting the residency requirements.

Using myGov
Step 1. Sign in to your myGov account. If you don’t have one, you will need to create a myGov account.
Step 2. Link myGov to Centrelink. You can do this under Services.
Step 3. Select Centrelink and complete the Child Care Subsidy Assessment.
