Together with our architects, Silvester Fuller, we have been able to create extraordinary and exciting play and learning spaces for children on four levels (including a rooftop playground), an exceptional workplace for early childhood teachers and educators, and contemporary communal spaces for families and guests. 

Some of the highlights of the Centre include

  • themed, custom-built timber Activity Pods (inspired by the Froebel Gifts) which won a Commendation in the prestigious 2017 NSW Architecture Awards of the Australian Institute of Architects,
  • climbing walls,
  • rope climbing equipment,
  • a LEGO wall, and
  • a semi-open kitchen with kitchen theatre where the children can participate in our chef's cooking and baking experiences.

FROEBEL St Leonards is located in the heart of the St Leonards-Wollstonecraft-Crows Nest triangle, only a short walk from St Leonards train station and city busses. Permanent and casual on-site parking are available to families in our on-site car park (subject to availability).
