Hunter Street

Our Childcare Centre in Hunter Street

Welcome to Creative Childcare Newcastle

ENROLLING NOW FOR 2018 
Conveniently located on Hunter Street in Newcastle West, just a ‘stones throw’ from the CBD, Creative Childcare Newcastle offers gorgeous indoor spaces with beautifully transformed interior walls from local artists. From the striking blue whale in the entrance to The Jungle Book themed play space with sensory path, sand pit and surprises at every turn, children will have ample opportunity for investigative learning, art, dramatic play, discovery and most of all….fun!
Our state of the art purpose built outdoor play area at the rear of the building features 2 river bed water features, 2 bike tracks, a tyre stacked course, 2 walking beams, catamaran with sail, 3 sand pits, 2 herb and veggie gardens and 2 massive shade sails. If that’s not enough….there’s also 2 mulch pits with large tractor tyres, large chalk boards for drawing on and our super talented artists have once again worked their magic on the surrounding walls.
Creative Childcare Newcastle delivers a new concept in childcare and early education in the area. Our approach is simple – we provide a wonderful stimulating and challenging environment in which children can learn and grow. In addition to industry standards of early learning curricula, we incorporate several Creative Learning principles including: Creative Music, Creative Art, Creative Dance and Creative Food. Children have numerous enriching opportunities for play based learning.
We welcome and encourage all families to come and visit the centre and meet our team. Please contact us for more information, or to book a tour of our beautiful centre.

Creative Childcare Co-Founder
Craig Neil

Creative Childcare is privately owned and operated. Owner and Co-founder, Craig Neil has a wealth of business experience in a variety of industries including the broader communications sector, engineering, childcare, computer software and property development. Through his working career Craig has developed a thorough knowledge of project management, leadership and the general running of successful businesses.
Craig, a father of three, is also a successful yachtsman who has competed in many national races including the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. Craig knows what it takes to provide high quality innovative early learning and sees many similarities in running a business to that of a skipper.
“What I love about sailing is the teamwork. It takes 12 people to turn our boat 90 degrees. Everyone has an important role, they have to execute it well and everything has to be perfectly synchronised. I love watching that teamwork and it’s the same in business. It takes only one person to be out of synch, or bad leadership, or one wrong decision, and you lose places or races.”
Craig is committed to mentoring his team at Creative Childcare in providing a happy and welcoming environment for children where they can laugh, play and grow.
