Learn About Active Kids Ermington
Our long day care centre in Ermington has been providing quality care since 1999. We have been rated Exceeding the National Quality Standards and also voted by the Active Kids Management Team as Outstanding Centre of the Year.
At our child care centre, we provide education based on the Early Years Learning Framework and we encourage the children to foster a love of learning through play and exploration. At our Ermington child care centre, we cater and program for children 8 weeks to 6 years old as well as incorporating school readiness for our children by incorporating life readiness skills from their very first day at the centre.
We also use our own parent communication app. Designed exclusively for all families at Active Kids Group. Our secure parent portal, facilitates effortless parent involvement at all times. This is a great tool for parents to help track children’s progress and offer input and feedback in relation to their child’s learning.
The Active Kids Group app is designed to enable parents to participate holistically in their child’s experience through photos, notes and stories. Through a secure and private log-in, parents gain access to snapshots of the day at the child care, which complements the personal interaction at the centre.
Our child care’s natural environments, inclusive of our landscaped designed outdoor space provide children with endless opportunities to discover, investigate and learn about the world around them. The children learn to be responsible and sustainable as they care for various vegetables, herbs and plants in our gardens and also create mealtime practices that maintain our worm farm.

- Our Learn & Grow team that consists of a Fitness Coach and Language and Dance & Drama teachers that visit our centre weekly to deliver a specially designed program
- An interactive whiteboard that the children use for multiple purposes including research on interest based projects, music movement experiences, yoga and writing experiences
- A flexible learning program that follows their interests

Our magnificent on site childcare chef Diana has been working with us for 20 years and prepares 5 delicious meals a day; breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and late snack. We have rotating menus to ensure there is variety across the days and weeks and we are also guided by the government to ensure we are providing our children’s growing bodies with nutritious foods from each of the 5 food groups. In addition to the above inclusions, we also provide our younger children with nappies, formula (S26 Gold) & a comfortable space for our breastfeeding mums.

What Our PARENTS Are Saying
Thank you for looking after and educating our kids and helping to create some normalcy at daycare during such stressful and uncertain times. Ryan is always coming home from child care sharing something new he learnt or sharing a story about what he got up to with his friends and educators at Ermington. We are truly grateful for all that you do. Happy Educators Day!
The Yam family
Where do I begin? My son Xander is absolutely thriving at this childcare centre and loves all the ladies that care for him. They really work to make it as comfortable for him as possible. Really impressed with the meals that the kids have at daycare and also having daily updates when he attends along with an overview of what they had learnt or what they did is always a pleasure to see. Love how interactive the teachers are and are always looking for feedback from the Ermington parents in ways to make the children feel more comfortable. Overall, we are all happy with this child care centre in Sydney and recommend it to anyone in the area. Thank you Active Kids.
A great child care centre in Sydney, the children are always happy and busy playing. I could not recommend Active Kids Ermington to fellow parents enough! My son looks forward to his days and loves the happy, creative, and engaging environment established by the educators. The facilities at the day care are fantastic and he enjoys a wide range of educational activities.
One of hardest thing for a parent is putting their kids into daycare and making sure someone else can look after your child just like you would. The education, professionalism, kindness and love that the management and staff at Active Kids Childcare Ermington show toward my two children is absolutely to the highest standard. The staff have assisted me to settle into my kids care and their routines. The child care centre is clean and well equipped with equipment and Educational resources for both ages. They both love going there (5 months and 2.5 years) and I can’t recommend them and their day care centre enough. They also have a full equipped kitchen and cook that prepare nutritional and fresh meals each day to the kids which is awesome.
