Hans & Gretel Long Day Kindergarten

Hans & Gretel Long Day Kindergarten

Hans & Gretel Long Day Kindergarten was one of the first purpose-built childcare centres in the Ryde area and continues to be family-owned and operated. The Centre, open from 7.00am – 6.00pm, Monday to Friday, caters for children from 22 months, to 6 years of age.
Servicing both the wider Ryde community as well as people coming into the Ryde area to work and study, it is conveniently located for parents commuting from Gladesville/Hunters Hill, Parramatta/Westmead, Eastwood/Carlingford, North Shore areas and further afield.
The Centre is located near to a reserve providing a quiet and environmentally rich location. As a point of reference, it is located on the same street as the Ryde Secondary College, off Buffalo Road.



Hans & Gretel Long Day Kindergarten has adopted the Reggio Emilia Approach to guide its programming. The National Curriculum – The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) – is supported by the Reggio Emilia Approach at our Centre. Teachers, children and their families all contribute to the program, and children are encouraged to develop skills in problem-solving, hypothesising, critical reflection and collaboration. The approach views the classroom environment as the ‘third teacher’, arranged to provide stimulation and provocations that promote children’s learning, in line with the EYLF.
Central to the EYLF is the concept that childhood can be conceived as a time of Belonging, Being and Becoming, and children are supported in building a sense of identity and wellbeing; contributing to the wider community; becoming confident and involved learners and effective communicators. Children also learn and develop in an inclusive environment, with a focus on the value of a culturally diverse community.

The French Start Program (commencing in 2018) introduces children to a second language in an enjoyable and relaxed way. New words and phrases are introduced gradually and reinforced through repetition and song – mirroring the way a child learns his/her first language. 
The Munch and Move program is an initiative from the NSW Health Department and encourages the healthy development of young children through fun and play-based experiences. 
Hans & Gretel Long Day Kindergarten has over 30 years’ experience in successfully transitioning children to school. The NSW Department of Education and Training identifies a list of skills that contribute to making this transition successfully.  Our Program supports the development of these skills, including personal/social skills, language, physical and mathematical skills.


Professional Staff
All staff employed at the Centre are qualified in childcare or working towards a qualification. The Centre has a Registered Psychologist and Registered Nurse on staff.  The Centre always aims to maintain staff ratios at above the required level. 


Fees are extremely competitive and include lunch, morning tea, afternoon tea and a late snack, programmed activities, all resources, sunscreen, French Start Program, and your child’s portfolio.
