St Nicholas Early Education Lochinvar is a 124-place early education and child care centre located amidst a unique educational community, providing the potential for a transitional pathway for children from their early years at St Nick’s, to their primary school years at St Patrick's, all the way through to their high school years at St Joseph's.

St Nick’s Lochinvar features a dedicated nursery for children aged 0 – 2 years, a 30-place program for children aged 2 – 3 years, a 30-place program for children aged 3 – 4 years and a 40-place preschool program for children aged 4 – 5 years. Having small group programs with high educator-to-child ratios allows us to provide premium, individualised education and care tailored to each child.

In line with St Nicholas’ commitment to supporting working parents, the service offers long day care hours (6.30am – 6pm). Lochinvar’s highly qualified, warm and professional team of educators are always available to share information about your child’s interests, friendships and learning journey.

A standout feature of our Lochinvar centre is its massive, award-winning outdoor environment, complete with large sandstone sandpits, tepees, bicycle tracks, garden beds, a mud kitchen, water pumps, dry river beds and so much more.
