About our school

The best possible start for school and life

Welcome to Australia Street Infants school, where we specialise in early childhood education and growing the hearts and minds of little learners from Sydney’s vibrant inner west. We provide the best possible start to your child’s schooling in the crucial early years, through playing, exploring, learning and experimenting in a nurturing and stimulating environment. We’re a small school with a big heart and a welcoming, inclusive and supportive community.

Just like your child, we’re one of a kind. As NSW’s only early childhood learning precinct of its kind, we provide educational and social programs for young people aged from 0 to 8-years-old through:

  • Preschool for 4-5-year-olds;
  • Infants School from Kindergarten to Year 2;
  • Playgroup and a toy library for 0 – 4-year-olds;
  • Kindy Gym for 0 – 3-year-olds; and
  • Occasional care, before and after school care and vacation care.

With an increased focus on play-based learning, our exceptional team of passionate and caring early childhood education experts make learning fun for our students and help to make coming to preschool or 'big' school exciting. Because we are a small school, your child is seen and known by all the teachers and our support team. Your child will get personalised attention and learning opportunities that challenge them and help them to grow socially, emotionally and academically.

At Australia Street Infants School, your child will have the opportunity to grow, learn and discover what they love. We work in partnership with families and carers to help your child gain knowledge, understanding, skills, values and attitudes to set them up for the rest of their schooling and to thrive in all aspects of their lives. We encourage curiosity and aim to foster a lifelong love of learning, to help create young people who are resilient, confident, self-aware, empathetic, collaborative and can make a positive contribution to their family, community and the world around them. We help our little learners to be proud of who they are and be the best person they can be, so they are ready to take on the world.

You and your family will feel welcomed, cared for and inspired at our school. We ensure our families and carers are well supported through regular educational sessions on child-related topics; occasional care, before and after school care and vacation care programs; and social events to connect with other like-minded people.

Since it opened its gates on Gadigal land in 1889, Australia Street Infants School has been at the forefront of early childhood education. We have continued to adapt and change along with the world around us.

We invite you to discover the many ways you and your child will benefit from our early childhood education expertise. Come and learn, experiment, play and explore with us! 'What we offer'
