"The philosophy of Farran Street is that children should be introduced to themselves. They should be allowed to learn who they are and what they can be. The purpose of early education at Farran Street is to foster competence in dealing with life, learning to live comfortably with others, planning to master and safely express one's feelings, learning to love life and welcome new experiences. Children should be loved unconditionally and their trust treasured so that they will benefit to their full potential under our care."

Frances Pattra - Director

Farran Street prides itself on being a "home away from home". Farran Street Quality Child Care Centre is a small intimate centre, where you'll find quality relationships being formed between children, their friends and teachers. Our open door policy encourages parents and guardians to visit and participate in our centre.

Cultural diversity amongst staff and activities is valued at Farran Street. This diversity is evident through our multicultural mix of staff and our wide array of cultural activities. This diversity combined with the intimate nature of the centre allows children to develop a strong sense of community.

At Farran Street we encourage a love of play, creativity, and love of learning. We believe that through these, children will develop a strong sense of self, resilience and self worth.
