children exploring outdoors


Allambie Bush Kindy, is owned by a husband and wife with young children of their own, who are committed to providing a happy, safe, fun, and nature-based educational environment.

We are situated adjacent to the bush that backs onto Manly Dam Reserve and this enables our educators and the children to get out into the bush and explore on a weekly basis. Allambie Bush Kindy has also recently installed a separate Adventure Playground with large gross motor skills equipment and a large open area for the children to run and play!

We are proud of our highly qualified teachers and educators who love bringing out the best in every child, encouraging and embracing individual personalities and talents.
