Welcome to Kids Club Macquarie Park where your child’s adventures begin! Watch your child’s eyes widen as they encounter a giraffe family, a life-sized helicopter, a bright red fire engine in our interactive outdoor space.
Our unique Education for Life program provides a holistic play-based curriculum to children from babies to pre-schoolers.
Our passionate educators work in partnership with our families to ensure each child reaches their full potential and create a home away from home for our little ones. Through the warmth and expertise of educators, children can develop healthy attachments that allow them the freedom to learn joyfully.
A thorough orientation process, where children spend time with their educator before entering care, allows for a smoother transition.
We understand the importance of nutrition in those early years. Our gourmet chef creates healthy and delicious meals daily based off a menu designed with food expert Annabel Karmel. Our exclusive partnership puts the ‘mmm’ into yummy meals!
Kids Club has an open-door policy which allows families to build up trust with educators and visit their children whenever they wish. This also means breastfeeding mums can drop by to nurse their babies throughout the day.
Parents will be updated on their child’s activities and progress on the Kids Club’s App, with information on meals, nap times, nappy changes and more.
With on-site parking zones for drop-off and pick-ups and close proximity to the train station, the new centre’s location offers families convenience and flexibility.
We are open from 7.00am to 6.30 pm.

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.
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 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.
We are a family operated, long day care centre which first opened in 2011. For the last eight years, we’ve been providing exemplary care and have set a very high standard to ensure that each child receives excellent care within the Ryde area. We strive to provide an environment which feels like home and we pride ourselves in our relationships with our children and families. We ensure that we offer an environment in which both children, and their families, feel welcome and cared for. Many of our families return for our services with younger siblings as our care and facilities at Lilypad is well known and regarded.
We value Relationships
We believe a positive relationship is the foundation for the provision of quality care and education. Positive relationships can be built on trust, respect and good communication.
We endeavour to establish and maintain trusting, respectful and responsive relationships with our families and communities which focuses on active and open communications to ensure the best outcome for our children.
We care about our children
Children’s wellbeing always comes first to us as an Early Childhood Education and Care Provider. We have a unique WELLBEING program to support a child’s healthy body and mind.
- Healthy Eating (Centre Menu) – Our qualified and experienced cook prepares nutritious meals with fresh ingredients and takes into consideration children’s daily nutritional requirements as recommended by the NSW Government.

For children, key educators help to form strong and secure relationships through continuity, consistency and nurturing relationships between educators and children individually and in small groups.
