About Us

About Us

Being family owned and operated, family values sit at the heart of everything we do. Since opening the centre in 1996, we envisioned a better approach to early learning and care.

We believe the centre should become an integral part of the local community, whilst providing high quality education and individualised care for all children. The name ‘TimeOut Educare’ evolved from the idea that parents can take time out of the day for themselves whilst we care for their precious child.

Over the years we have formed long lasting relationships between our parents and the children, through curriculum events and child activities and in 2020, we welcomed the second TimeOut Educare early learning centre in Westgarth.

Together, we make TimeOut Educare a place that is safe, supportive and inclusive; where children can reach their full potential and progress their learning journey.

Why choose us?

We understand choosing a childcare centre for your precious little person is no easy feat. There are many factors you need to consider and we are here to support you every step of the way.
Our priority is the health, wellbeing and education of your child entrusted in our care. That they thrive in an environment which allows them to feel a sense of safety belonging as well as an environment which nurtures them to aspire to their fullest potential.

We take the time to build positive and genuine relationships with families to fully understand their child’s needs. We strongly believe this approach provides a child-focused, open environment where families and staff work in partnership to create a positive and nurturing early learning experience.
We are ready to support you even when life throws its obstacles your way. We understand raising a child can be challenging at times – but fear not, we’re in this together.

Our centre is rated “Exceeding” in all 7 quality areas by the Quality Assessment and Regulation Division from the Department of Education and Training – Early Childhood & School Education Group. While we pride ourselves on our excellent facilities and play-based learning programs, it is our team that sets us apart.

Our passionate educators are committed to creating engaging educational experiences and lesson plans to provide our children with opportunities to create, learn and explore. We know that your child means everything to you and it is a privilege to play a role in their education and care.

It’s a role we do not take lightly and we are committed to every parent leaving our centre with complete confidence. Together, we make TimeOut Educare a place that is safe, supportive and inclusive; where diversity is celebrated and children can reach their full potential.
