About St Nick's at Lochinvar

St Nicholas Early Education Lochinvar is an architecturally designed, purpose-built, 124-place centre located next to St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School, Lochinvar. Our design creates age defined indoor learning areas with shared outdoor areas for all ages to enjoy.

Operating from 6.30am to 6pm, Monday to Friday; St Nicholas Lochinvar provides:

  • two nursery programs designed for 12 children under 24 months of age
  • two toddler programmes for 15 children each
  • two dedicated 3-year-old programs for 20 children each
  • a dedicated preschool wing which will provide two learning areas for children 4-5 years of age – located close by to St Patrick’s Primary School, offering an invaluable school transition program for families.

Our learning areas include educational resources and age appropriate learning environments to promote child focused, integrated programs. Our 4-5-year Preschool boasts an interactive Smart Board resource that enhances our intentional teaching moments and provides an investigation tool for spontaneous learning.

The outdoor area has been designed to create challenging and diverse play opportunities for all ages. We have respected the rural surrounds of the Lochinvar area in our planning, and work to promote natural play spaces for our young explorers.

The outdoor area at St Nicholas Lochinvar includes:

  • a large sandpit complete with large shade structures and water pumps
  • dry river beds complete with bridges
  • cubby houses that incorporate a farm house feel
  • bike tracks
  • mud pits
  • interactive vegetable and flower beds  
  • ample outdoor play areas to explore
  • an amphitheatre to provide opportunities for dramatic play and group learning.

The centre has a fully functioning kitchen with all meals and snacks catered for children 0-3 years.

Our pre-schoolers have morning and afternoon tea provided, but as part of our school readiness program, they will bring their midday meal to “school” each day.

As a unique service to parents, at St Nicholas Lochinvar we are also pleased to offer a Café service each morning – allowing parents to order a coffee on the way in for drop off, ready for collection on the way out to the car.
