Mikarie Child Care Centre (Mikarie) is a multi-award winning long day care centre situated in a tranquil, peaceful setting in Kirrawee. Our modern, purpose-built centre operates from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.

We welcome all children, families and educators, and embrace and celebrate all cultures and diversity.

We are driven to give each and every child the best possible start in life. Our vision and our purpose motivate us to ensure that all children are able to develop through play-based learning.

At Mikarie, we see every child as a unique individual with different needs and goals – we understand that not all children learn and develop the same way. All children are included and encouraged to participate in all of our programs.

Inclusion is about having a sense of belonging. When children feel a sense of belonging they are more likely to thrive because they feel safe, nurtured and valued. We believe everyone has the right to the following three dimensions: access, participation and outcomes.

(2012, Early Childhood Australia (ECA), Statement on Inclusion)

We offer children aged 6 weeks to 6 years a safe and supportive environment and cater for up to 75 children each day.

Mikarie is staffed by exceptional, highly skilled, motivated and passionate staff who are dedicated in delivering the highest quality in care and early education.

Mikarie is an Aboriginal word for ‘depth’, which reflects our commitment to providing a deep and meaningful journey of high quality care and education. Our surroundings embrace the community’s diversity and honour the history of the Gweagal People of the Dharawal Nation.
