ABC Albany

ABC Albany is a unique childcare centre with two separate modern buildings across the road from each other. Located just off the Albany Highway, a short distance from Rosedale Road, we’re handy to motorways and other main thoroughfares.

Tahi Room is an intimate environment for children aged three months to three years old. We provide a family orientated atmosphere within an environment that is open, spacious and very well resourced. Children are given the opportunity to develop at their own pace in a safe, secure environment. Independence is encouraged as children are viewed as individuals with their own personality. Learning and development is introduced through play, music, dance, visual arts, and our relationships with the children during care moments.

Our outdoor area provides a safe learning environment for children to explore the natural environment and learn about the world around them whilst developing friendships and social skills.

We understand at this young age your child’s routine may change a few times, so we work in partnership with you to ensure we are maintaining your home routines and keeping your personal aspirations in mind. We pride ourselves on our strong relationships with children and their families. 

Rua Room cares for children aged three to five years old. Children’s learning is encouraged through play and our fun-filled, stimulating environment encourages children to grow and develop a healthy sense of self. We support each child’s social and emotional development so they look forward to learning new things and are ready to participate in group activities, as well as initiate their own learning.

Our wonderful, large outdoor area with natural grass is the ideal backyard for preschoolers to explore. Equipped with swings, a playhouse and a productive vegetable garden, children develop the essential knowledge and skills to support them as they prepare for school.

Our unique Be School Ready initiative has been developed to ensure that children leave the centre as confident, capable learners and have a successful start at school.

Our teachers are motivated and have the experience to provide the very best learning opportunities for your child. ABC Albany has a strong and productive relationship with the local Primary schools, and together we work towards preparing your children for school.

Come in and visit us today! We’d love to show you around.

kind words from our parents


I am very happy with ABC Albany, the staff are always pleasant and answer all my questions perfectly. My daughter absolutely loves going there and has such a good time.


I could not think more highly of this centre. I have and will continue to highly recommend it to others. The staff are the best I have come across, they always make me and my son feel like an important part of the Albany family.


Very pleased overall with service, staff and centre. My 3.5 year old girl has been there for just over a year now and loves it! Constant changes and additions to improve play stuff, facilities, learning is excellent. Lovely staff who really care. I was recommended to ABC Albany and have done so myself several times. Thanks!


The new playhouse is a great hit with the children. There is a strong sense of community amongst the parents at events like Mother’s Day breakfast, the arrival of the playhouse, the Art Display and Auction and Carnival Day. Thank you for the many opportunities we have to bring the rest of the family along to our child’s daycare.
