Childhood is a time to BE, to seek and make meaning of the world

Parents & Families

Family and community have always been central to what we do. We have a strong partnership with our families and acknowledge that you are the primary influence on your child’s development.

Our friendly and professional educators welcome all interactions with family and love hearing about your child’s interests and activities at home, holidays and special milestones so that we can incorporate them into your child’s day with us.

Whether it’s birthday parties, Grandparent’s Day or end of year concerts we open our doors to family and extended family at any opportunity.

The Gillys App

Building warm relationships with our families through regular, ongoing and open communication is our top priority.

To make this easy, Gilly’s has developed a bespoke app to ensure parent – educator communication is consistent, reliable and most importantly – valuable. You’ll be able to track your child’s day through pictures, videos and updates including sleep, nappy changes, daily food menu and more!

Community Connections

Community has always been at the core of Gilly’s Early Learning Centre. We value community connections such as our partnership with Jewish Care, whose aged residents are regular visitors at our centre.

Gilly’s ELC is not just a Daycentre, but a loving community that genuinely cares about the attending children and their families. My child feels safe, incredibly happy and is excited to attend each and every day. As a parent I have no guilt and no worries, because I know my son is where he wants to be- at Gilly’s having fun and flourishing.

We LOVE Gillys ELC. At the broadest sense, what we value most about Gillys is that all the staff give a sincere impression that they really care about the welfare of all the individual kids. On a day-to-day level, I love that when I drop off our son in the morning, he’s always greeted by one of the wonderful staff members and they always have an activity ready in place that he gets right into.

I was dreading sending my first child to creche and having to leave her with strangers. I'm so glad I decided on Gilly's as the experience was beyond my expectations. Leaving her at Gilly's each day felt more like leaving her with family. The warmth, care and love that permeates the centre is so comforting. My only wish would be that they open up a kinder! We are sad to be leaving.

My son Asher has had a wonderful two years at Gilly’s ELC. The staff are all so loving and caring and couldn’t ask for a better environment and team to look after my children.

We have had such an incredible year at Gilly’s! Shua’s teachers are so warm, loving and accommodating and he absolutely loves crèche. We, as parents always feel heard and are always greeted with a smile and a kind word at drop-off and pick-up. The facilities are top and we wish Shua could stay at Gilly’s for all his schooling.
