Welcome to St Ives Chase Kindergarten
St Ives Chase Kindergarten
Open since 1991, St Ives Chase Kindergarten is a licensed Long Day Care Centre open from 7am to 6pm, catering for up to 40 children aged between 2.5 - 6 years for 2 to 5 days per week, 48 weeks per year. We at St Ives preschool kindergarten aim to provide a welcoming, safe and stimulating environment where children can become active learners, explore, and learn through a wide variety of experiences and activities, day by day. Our school's mission is to offer your child the most comprehensive learning experience possible in a safe and warm learning environment.
Our childcare centre provides a varied program for all children based on the children's interests, observations and family input. The kindergarten's program incorporates the Emergent Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework. At St Ives preschool we encourage family input into the program and believe in creating a strong link between the home and the kindergarten. The adaptation process takes some time, and it depends on the child. We guide each parent through this process individually. St Ives Chase Kindergarten has been assessed under the current National Quality Standards, which guarantees your children will only get the best education.
We have 2 classrooms in the Centre, and each room is run by experienced and qualified Early Childhood Educators.
Eikoh Seminar Australia, which comprises of West Ryde Long Day Care Centre, Normanhurst Child Care Centre, St Ives Chase Kindergarten and Roseville Kindergarten is committed to the effective implementation of our Child Safe Policy and the NSW Child Safe Standards, ensuring that the policy is appropriately reviewed and updated. As Early Childhood Education and Care services we are committed to ensuring that the children in our care are protected and their rights are respected and valued. Our aim is to ensure that all children feel safe, secure and supported within our learning environments and that educators are aware of their obligations and responsibilities in relation to child safety, ensuring that we provide a child safe environment for the children in which they are able to confidently express themselves and feel respected and listened to.
Preschool St Ives
At preschool St Ives, children are actively engaged in all the activities. We aim at providing the children with projects which challenge and stimulate imagination and creativity. A full spectrum of hands-on daily activities is designed to promote each child's physical, creative, cognitive, social, and emotional growth. As a result, the kids will have more authentic learning outcomes. Your children will always be under the watchful eye of our exceptional teachers so you can have peace of mind.
Our students are the main focus of everything we do. When children feel heard, seen, and valued, they can give maximum results. That's precisely why we nurture love as one of our core values. The friendly, kind, family-oriented atmosphere at St Ives Chase Kindergarten helps pre-schoolers feel physically and emotionally safe, and nurtures the child's mind and heart.
Please call to make an appointment to come in, meet us, and see our Centre. We look forward to fostering a love of learning in your child!
Eikoh Child Care Centre App

Educators share photos, videos, stories and reflections in real time. Parents can read and respond to posts, upload photos and stay updated on announcements and diary dates.

The Eikoh Child Care Centre App provides a secure environment that improves communication.
