Reggio Academy is more than a childcare centre. We are an Academy. At Reggio, it is our belief children are born independent, curious, and eager to learn from their very first steps. Based in Waterloo, our childcare offers children an interactive and supportive environment to pique their curiosity for learning.
At Reggio Academy, our experienced educators are committed to providing a strong foundation that successfully facilitates your child’s inherent love for learning through everyday activities and experimental play. Compared to opposing childcare in Waterloo, we stand firm to the innovative child-rearing practice, the Piker method, which caters to the respectful relationship between adult and infant through tender care, uninterrupted exploration and play, and naturally paced motor development...
Awarded five-star ratings from parents on Facebook and Google Reviews, we understand that every child is different, each possessing varying levels of learning capacities and thirst for knowledge. As a result, our Waterloo childcare centre offers learning services, including language and sensorial-based classes, all guided by trusted childcare experts. With exciting activities such as drawing, sculpture, shadow play, and puppetry, to name a few, we guarantee safe and supported classes that both accommodate your child’s learning abilities and encourage their growth to explore, investigate and make decisions independently.
At Reggio Academy, we don’t like seeing unhappy faces, and we’re keen on keeping it that way! As your next childcare with Reggio Academy, we’re determined to keep your child’s wellbeing and happiness at the forefront of our childcare practices, not just their education. From our tiny tots to our first-time parents, we promise five-star service to all customers to ensure they enter and leave with smiles on their faces.

Our dedication to your child’s education extends to everything that we do. We believe that each child is infinitely capable, creative and intelligent.
Our facilities are an appropriate metaphor for our inclusive approach to education. With room for approximately 80 students, from a wide range of backgrounds and cultural groupings, and with provision for the most able students and for those with special learning difficulties, we can claim to be one of the truly international, proudly comprehensive centres in Sydney.
We have been sending our son to this Academy and it has been amazing. The teachers are super caring and attentive to our child needs. Their app to keep you up to date really gives you a peace of mind throughout the day and our son comes home happy and ready to sleep the whole night after a day of fun. The place is brand new and it has a lot of natural light. which I love. Go and pay them a visit
I’m extremely happy with my decision to enrol my daughter in Reggio Academy. The centre gave us extra orientation days to help her ease into her new environment as she doesn’t usually adapt well to new environments and people. There has been no tears since we’ve started a few weeks ago. The educators have done a great job with helping her feel safe and keeping her happy. There’s always a smile on her face when I pick her up. She’s even made good friends since. They’re also awesome as the app is always up to date(in real time, live updates) and I’ll know what my child is doing and learning. The menu is great too. I’m also glad at how every child is treated and cared for as an individual. My daughter has really bad eczema and her skin care instructions have definitely been followed. They even went an extra mile by donning gloves on her, during sensory play, when she has broken skin. I feel at ease knowing that she’s in good hands. My second child will be starting in a few weeks and I am excited to see her grow/learn at Reggio.
All the educators and admin staff are quite passionate about children and the childcare facilities (play area, explorer room, food) are one of the best we have seen. As a parent we are quite happy and humbled to see our child settled at Reggio. He is improving on his occupational, speech and language, and social skills. Reggio Academy is like a second home to him.
A big thank you to you all for making Alannah and William so welcome. We moved back to Ireland, where we are originally from last sept and came back to Sydney in July. Alannah in particular has been out of daycare for a good while now and used to spending so much time with myself. They are both more than ready to spend time with other people and socialize but I was very worried it would be a another hard adjustment for them. However they both seem to be thriving and so happy in your daycare. Everyone is so friendly and the environment is so positive even when doing drop offs and pick ups. We are very happy to have them both attending.
We will be accepting tour bookings from the 23rd of September for parents who are fully vaccinated and have proof of vaccination.
