About Shamrock Hill

Shamrock Hill is a community based, not for profit long day care centre providing education and care for children aged from 6 weeks old to when they start school.

We believe children come to our centre with a desire for learning and are capable, strong and individual.

Through building strong relationships with families we promote a strong sense of community for young children that promotes their learning.

Learning environments are constructed with thought and beauty in mind, this supports learning in all areas.

In having a highly trained team who have ample opportunity to participate in staff training and development we ensure a commitment to keeping up to date with current theory and practice.
