A Unique Childcare Centre in Lane Cove


At Ekidna Cottage in Lane Cove we uphold the values we consider most important to the preschool learning environment and encourage every family who chooses to connect with us to live by them. Our childcare centre is built upon respect for the child, the family, and our educators, with a strong focus on welcoming diversity and inclusivity. With lessons in making sustainable choices and teaching each child to select healthy and nutritious options to support their growing minds and bodies, we foster an environment of personal development.

It is our philosophy that every preschool child is capable of figuring out how best they interact with the world around them and should be recognised as an empowered and active author in their own learning. It has always been our aim to nurture and support relationships with the family as a whole; a quality we find sets us apart from other daycare centres in Lane Cove.


Our relationship with each child is of vital importance, and that extends to their families. We operate on the expectation of reciprocal trust, respect and a passion for allowing each child to have the opportunity to reach their highest potential.


As educators who have an innate understanding of children strengthened by years of experience and further education, we know that our role is to nourish each child’s learning journey in whatever form that takes whilst in our daycare. Not all children respond to the same educational methods, and not every childcare centre teaches the same. That is why we make it our mission to discover how best to assist your child’s unique development.


We know that environment plays a huge role in helping preschool children learn. That is why our spaces are arranged using a variety of resources that support and encourage learning. Each day is a new opportunity for all children to engage and benefit from meaningful interactions in these spaces, including social encounters, individual experiences and intentional learning through group times.

Since 2006, our Director Isha Aney has guided Ekidna’s vision to become the childcare centre we are immensely proud of. We believe our role is to forge a support network for families and the community of Lane Cove. We are one of the oldest and most respected early childcare and daycare centres in the area, as our focus is on quality education and care.
