We are a small, family-run Centre, and we are passionate about caring and educating children.
We pride ourselves on offering your child a nurturing, loving and homely environment where they can develop and learn to their full potential.
We think it’s important to educate and care for children in partnership with families, many of whom maintain friendships with our educators long after they graduate to “big school”.

Welcome to Chatswood Early Learning Centre fondly known as “Magnolia Cottage “ where our children bloom and grow” and thank you for considering our centre for the care and education of your child . Magnolia Cottage has been a development driven out of sheer passion. Our beautiful “state of the heart” , new purpose built centre has been architecturally designed to combine the old and the new , in keeping with the originality of our heritage- streetscape and blending modern contemporary lines . We understand how important quality care and education is, particularly in the early years and making the decision to place your child in the care of others is an important decision.
At Chatswood Early Learning Centre-Magnolia Cottage there is a strong emphasis not only on providing a high level of quality care but also on engaging our children in deeper creative art based rich learning environments. We pride ourselves on our inviting learning spaces, the foundations of our philosophy, our wonderful staff , and our exuberance and passion that we put into all that we do. We blend the solid foundations of a contemporary early childhood program, whilst bringing forward innovation, creativity, and higher order thinking, prerequisites of the modern world we live in.
Our educational programs value the creative arts and connect with child-centred approaches and elements of significant philosophies and theories in early education, including the REA (Reggio Emilia Approach) and Howard Gardener’s multiple intelligence. They connect with the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards in early childhood education. Our programs are developed with our specialist Dance and Music teachers and we also have a physical education program with specialist sports sessions. We embrace care for our earth and value the significance of connection with nature and others throughout the learning day.
Our educational programs are specific to the 2-5 age groupings and are open ended and flexible while also designed to include structured small and class group sessions and intentional teaching to foster children’s development in different ways. We to cater for progression in learning within the developmental domains, we also aim to connect children in mixed aged and family groupings since children co-construct their learning and identity and we value the benefits of mixed age learning environments. Our programs connect children’s intrinsic desire to learn and individual interests in learning.
