Childcare Centre Canberra – St Nicholas Preschool

St Nicholas Greek – Australian Preschool & Childcare Centre Canberra is nestled in the heart of Yarrulumla. Our philosophy is simple, we love creative learning. Whether it be through language exploration, creative expression or understanding sustainability. Here at St Nicholas, we aim to encourage children’s natural intelligence and curiosity of their
environment through four key areas of learning:

Language Classes

At St Nicholas’ we provide daily Greek language classes to stimulate the early development of your child’s brain

Sports Classes

At St Nicholas’ we provides weekly sport classes held by external Sports coaches – Ready Steady Go!

Understanding Sustainability

We demonstrate the importance of sustainability through gardening, composting and water conservation.

What makes us different?

Community involvement is at the heart of St Nicholas’. We conduct regular community events and fetes for the children and their families.


Play based learning expands on interests your child already has and adds new dimensions to foster their natural curiosity.
