Situated within the beautiful grounds of the University of Sydney’s Cumberland campus in Lidcombe, SDN Ngallia offers early childhood education and child care for 47 children per day from birth to school age.
Many students and staff members from Sydney University and TAFE use the centre, but we also welcome families from the wider community.
Children and families are supported and encouraged to use the languages they speak at home while at the centre. Staff members speak 12 different languages altogether, including English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Tamil, Hindi, Nepali, Macedonian, Kurdish, Arabic, Croatian, Telugu, Spanish, Serbian and Persian. Our educational program recognises and responds to individual children's strengths, capabilities, culture, interests, current knowledge, ideas and experiences.
'Ngallia' means ‘the meeting place of the children’ in the local Aboriginal Darug language.
