  • 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.

    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.

St Marys Office & Library has reopened

Council’s Customer Service counter has resumed their normal operating hours, and the Library has reopened with reduced services. There is now a small collection of books available to borrow, as well as some audio books and DVDs. There is also Wi-Fi, internet access, computers for the public to use, and photocopying. Printing is also now available.

Repairs will continue and Council hopes to restore the Library to full services as soon as possible.
