  • Get the best care and education for your child

  • Great news for parents in the Penrith Local Government Area. All 26 of Council’s childcare centres have places available.

    This means you can access affordable, quality childcare that is safe and inclusive for your child.

    We offer care for children between the ages of 0-12, including long day care, preschool, out of school hours and occasional care.

    Child care and preschool subsidies

    The Federal and State Governments offer subsidies for families with children in child care and preschool.

    The type of subsidy and the amount you’re eligible for depend on your circumstances. More information is available on our Child care and preschool subsidies page.

    Why choose a Council centre?

    All our staff are highly trained and qualified and all centres meet or exceed the National Quality Framework standards for early childhood education.

    We also have competitive prices and most of our centres offer an all-inclusive fee. So there are no additional or hidden costs for you, with all nappies, blankets and food provided as part of the fee.

    And because our centres are owned and run by Council, they’re not-for-profit, which means all we care about is providing the absolute best care and education for your child.

    With 26 locations across the region, there is a centre convenient to your home or work.
