Our Little Story


    St Nicholas Greek – Australian Preschool and Canberra Childcare Centre was established in 1994. Nestled in the heart of Yarralumla, the newly renovated building and outdoor environment is the perfect sanctuary of inquisitive young children!


    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. We believe it takes a village to raise a child and families and children are at the centre of everything we do!

    We are licensed for 40 children aged 1 – 5 years. We provide everything for your child, including nutritious meals throughout the day. All you need to bring is a hat and spare change of clothes!


    We are open from 7.30AM – 6.00PM!
