Servicing Holmesville, West Wallsend and surrounding areas

Holmesville Playhouse Preschool is an accredited long day care operating Monday to Friday between 7.30am and 5:30pm to cater to working parents.
We promise to nurture and care for your child throughout the early stages of learning. Our curriculum is designed to help them learn through interactive play and guide them on the path to success as they develop.
Our outstanding facilities for indoor and outdoor learning and innovative activities provide continuous opportunities for learning. Each of our carers have a deep passion for education and will help inspire your child’s creativity and sense of wonder.
When you entrust your child’s care to someone else, we understand you need peace of mind knowing the day care provider has your child’s best interests at heart. We guarantee your child is in the hands of friendly, caring professionals who will become like part of your extended family

We understand how difficult it can be to leave your children under someone else’s supervision, but as you get to know our team of dedicated teachers, you’ll soon become to regard them as friends (if not, part of the family). Our team of carers are hand-selected, undergoing a rigorous recruitment process. It is mandatory for all staff to have up-to-date first aid certificates and also undergo special training to deal with anaphylaxis and asthma.
