Fairley Early Childhood Service

Fairley Early Childhood Service is located in the picturesque Fairley Estate of the Murrumbateman township. The service offers state of the art facilities in a rural setting and engages in a wide range of services local to the community.

Fairley has a high calibre of educators including two Early Childhood Teachers to deliver high quality, innovative programs for young children. Also offered is a School Readiness program, aimed at providing children with a wide variety of experiences that will best promote the learning dispositions and social skills to be successful as they start their school journey.

We have a strong connection to the natural world, and that is reflected in our learning environments and the experiences available to the children. This includes our commitment to sustainability through our recycling and composting initiatives.

Unique to our long day care programs, Fairley offers a Before and After School Care program as well as a School Holiday program. During the school term, our wonderful educators will provide drop off and collection from the local bus stop, as well as other educational services in the local area. Our School Holiday is developed by our educators, in consultation with the children. Every day has a different theme, and incursions and excursions are offered. The School Holiday program is available to view by week 6 of each term.
