Peak Child Arderne

Our vision is to provide quality, affordable, private, early learning in a high-care environment. 

What's Included

  • A safe and loving environment

  • Qualified teachers

  • Full day, all year round except December holidays

  • From 3 months to 6 years of age

  • 2 cooked meals a day

  • Close to your place of work

  • So much more than a creche or daycare centre

Operating Times

Our opening hours are from 7:00am to 5:30pm, Monday to Friday.


The school only closes during the December school holidays, with the last day of school being around 15th December each year. We open again around the 10th January. Please confirm the exact dates with the school principal.

Our schools will be closed on a Monday if there is a Public Holiday on a Tuesday, and on a Friday if there is a Public Holiday on a Thursday. This enables us to deep clean the school and to perform maintenance while the children are not present.

“My baby has been at Peak Child Arderne from the age of 3 months. She is the happiest baby when she sees all the staff in the morning especially her teacher Salama. All the staff here are amazing, so loving and full of fun. As a parent I feel so welcomed by all the staff and it feels like a new little family in my life.”

— Kim (parent at Peak Child Arderne)
