UNSW owns, operates and manages 4 long day care centres Kanga’s House, The House at Pooh Corner, Tigger’s Honeypot and Owl’s House.
UNSW recognises the importance of offering high quality early education and care provisions to its staff close to campus as being one of the key factors in attracting, retaining and enabling staff.
For local and international student families the availability and close proximity of the services support their ability to study effectively and achieve their career aspirations.
We pride ourselves in offering early childhood education and care of a superior standard by employing highly qualified staff; maintaining lower child to staff ratios; and investing in professional development.
Kangas House and Early Years has organised a group of Educational Leaders from the University child care centres across Sydney to meet and establish an Educational Leaders Network group within the grounds of the University of NSW. It will be an opportunity for the Educational Leaders in Early Years to listen and collaborate with inspiring speakers, network, discuss common problems, offer each other ideas and support and to discuss the unique challenges that come with being Educational Leaders.

In February 2013 UNSW opened a new long day care centre Owl’s House.
Owl’s House is an exciting new addition to UNSW Early Years services. Similar to our other 3 existing centres the children at Owl’s House will be offered high quality early education and care.
The centre has been uniquely designed to create numerous functional spaces that are fun as well as stimulating. The centre has a shared dining space, 3 outdoor areas and 4 indoor playrooms.
