About Us

Sandcastles Early Education Centre

Sandcastles Early Education Centre is a family owned and operated Centre-based Day Care Centre.

Working With Children Checks

We carry out reference checks on all staff employed at the centre to gain an understanding of the competence, reliability and attitude of the candidates. To comply with the Child Protection (Prohibited Employment) Act 1998 and the Commission for Children and Young People Act 1998, a Working with Children check is done on all full, part-time and casual employees as well as ongoing visitors who will be working with the children.

Finding a new education and care service for your child can be a daunting task. At Sandcastles Early Education Centre our aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where children can develop their intellectual, social, emotional, physical and aesthetics skills to become competent and confident individuals and for you as a parent /guardian to feel safe knowing your child is receiving the best possible care.
