Willoughby Childcare Nursery Family Day Care Sydney

WillowBee Early Learning Centre and Nursery are a family owned and operated luxury long day care centre, located in Willoughby/Chatswood East. Open since 2009, both of our centres are purpose built and provide a homely nurturing environment for children.

At WillowBee we believe that the first five years of life are the most influential to children’s future development and lay the foundations for a love of learning. We see each child as unique with their own interests, strengths and needs and through our educational program, our dedicated team aims to help each child develop to their fullest. We offer a Pre Lit/Pre School program for the children who enter into school life the year after.

We recognise the importance of our families as the primary influence in their child’s life, and strive to continually develop partnerships with all families. We are always available to discuss your child’s progress and want our families to contribute and feel part of their child’s experience, at all times.

Thank you to the many happy years and life lessons Zac has experienced at Willowbee, and for the wonderful and nurturing teachers he has had over the years since he started in Baby Bees in Jan 2017. We honestly can’t imagine a better start to his early education than Willowbee has been. We will be forever grateful to the whole Willowbee team for everything you have given to Zac and to us. Many, many thanks.

We are just coming up to our 9th year of WillowBee with all three of our kids having attended the centre. We find Bec and her team of educators fantastic, they genuinely care about our children, they take the time to get to know our kids and the diversity the centre taps into whether that be cultural, types of play and activities or even look and feel, has ensured we have always been happy.

I don't usually do this but I'd just like to thank the great staff at Willowbee for the time and effort they put into Sarah's well being. As a working mum I really depend on them, and they deliver the goods every time. Thank you so much!
