Caring for kids

Sydney is a family-friendly city with residents and non-residents who work in our local area able to choose from a wide variety of government, private and community child care centres and related services.

In this section you'll find information about the City of Sydney's child care centres, kindergartens, pre-schools, playgroups, after-school care services and vacation care programs.

Meeting future demands

In 2013, the City commissioned and published an analysis of child care needs across the local area now and into the future. The analysis covers centre-based child care, long day care, preschool, occasional care and home-based care.

You can download the study below.
