Childcare services

A number of TAFE NSW locations have children's centres that can provide a safe and positive learning environment for your child, fostering their self-esteem by encouraging their creativity and valuing their work. Knowing that your child is learning and playing happily can leave you better able to concentrate on your studies and training.

All of our children's centres are fully licensed and accredited, and employ qualified staff. So if you have enrolled with TAFE NSW, and have a child who will require care whilst you study, you can apply for a place at one of our centres.

Applying for placement

If places are available, children can be enrolled as early as six weeks old up until they’re five years of age. Children can be enrolled to fit in with their parents' class timetables. Places are limited – so please apply as soon as you can once you have enrolled, or when you apply to study and then confirming your enrolment as soon as possible after. If you are enrolled at one of the locations listed, you can  contact the children's centre to apply for a place for your child. Please see below for the children’s centre contact information.
