About Us

 Nought to Five Early Childhood Centre, previously known as Eden Park Child Care Centre, was established in 1977 as the first purpose built, work-based child care centre in Australia.


In 1988 we became an incorporated association and from this time until the present day we have operated as a not-for-profit, community based long day care centre.

We relocated in August 1998 from the Eden Park Estate to our present location in Waterloo Road, Macquarie Park.

We welcome you to our centre and hope that you find your time with us a rewarding experience for both you and your child.  Nought to Five is a community centre, where children, families and staff come together.  We work in partnerships to build trusting, supportive relationships to achieve the best childcare experience for your child.

We are committed to providing high quality childcare and constantly update, review and reflect upon our practices and policies to ensure they are current and meeting the needs of the families at our centre.

We are proud to be an integral part of the North Ryde community for so many years & we look forward to continuing to provide a high quality service for our children & families for many years to come.

Our well appointed, home-like premises offer a warm, safe and secure environment and include security-coded entrance, air-conditioning, large open rooms and excellent resources.

Our natural outdoor setting includes grassed areas, sandpits, bike tracks and established trees and shrubs which offers children an aesthetic environment which enhances and stimulates their play.

Our Centre motto is: “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow…”
