FROEBEL St Leonards is our newest Bilingual Early Learning Centre in Sydney, for 99 children from approx. 6 months to 5 years of age. We opened our doors in December 2015. The Department of Education has rated the centre at Exceeding the National Quality Standard in July 2016 - an extraordinary achievement only 6 months after the opening. 

Our Centre facilitates children's learning and development on many different levels – playful language learning (through our bilingual, German-English immersion concept), science & maths (particularly through our Little Scientists program), health & nutrition (fresh, nutritious meals are prepared daily by our own centre chef) as well as appropriate risk-taking.

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), 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). If you are interested in leaving your car at FROEBEL after dropping off your child please contact us for more details or click here.
