Welcome to Horsley Kids, an Early Childhood Centre in western Sydney.

Families from Penrith, Liverpool, Blacktown, Fairfield and all other neighbouring suburbs attend Horsley Kids for its excellence in childcare and early years’ education. We are open 5 days a week, 50 weeks of the year from 7am – 6pm. Our qualified staff care for and educate children aged between six weeks and five years old.

Horsley Kids is conveniently located only two minutes’ drive from: M7 Freeway, Horsley Park Public Primary School, Marion Catholic Primary School (Our Lady of Victories Church and Parish) and Horsley Park local shops.

The curriculum at Horsley Kids was developed to reflect the interests, uniqueness and developmental needs of all the children in the centre. The program is inspired by the “Reggio Emilia approach” of Early Childhood Learning; a philosophy that ‘play’ and ‘interested based learning’ is essential for children and this is how they learn.

What our Long Day Care Centre provides

Children will have the opportunity to grow at their own pace and develop a respect for others in a tolerant and non-stereotyped environment. Each classroom’s goal is to enhance learning and engage children in ‘high level thinking’. Through exposure to a variety of media and expressive materials, children are free to: choose, explore, observe, create and learn in a literacy-rich environment.

The centre will provide five (5) nutritious and tasty meals throughout the day. All menus follow the Balanced Dietary Guidelines and have been planned by a certified Dietician. We will provide fresh fruit and vegetables in all planned meals and organic foods when possible, e.g. Chemical-free chicken and seasonal vegetables, while all meats are minced onsite using only quality meats.

Horsley Kids is very proud that in our first Accreditation in 2006, we achieved High Distinctions in all Seven Quality Areas. The assessor claimed that no other new centre had achieved this result in all her 7 years of assessment.

We proudly achieved this exceeding rating again in 2009, 2013 and again in 2018 which was our most recent assessment and rating.
