Our Story

Neutral Bay Kindergarten had been owned and operated by the same family for the past 40 years. During that time we have provided care for literally thousands of children and their families on Sydney’s Lower North Shore. In 2021, Neutral Bay Kindergarten has a new owner and operator – Kiddie Land Pty Ltd, which is also an Australian-owned family business, sharing the same philosophy and values as that of Neutral Bay Kindergarten.

Whilst many childcare centres have come and gone over the years and the early childhood landscape has seen many changes, Neutral Bay Kindergarten still remains grounded in the same family values and dedication to quality care.

We know that word of mouth from friends and neighbours can be extremely important when finding care of your child so we have also included some comments from some of our NBK families past and present:



This Kindergarten has a fantastic pre-school program in a very caring and understanding environment. I have had both my daughters go there and they love going to Kindy in the morning. The centre manager is excellent! They know each child down to the T! I would recommend it to anyone (and I have seen many childcare centres). This one is second to none.

NBK is one of those very special places where you feel like your own family is looking after your children. We have had 3 children attend NBK over the past 7 years, they have been owned and run by the same family for over 35 years. Every morning you are greeted with a smile and a wave from both the staff and your children. We will miss NBK but always remember the special place it has had for our children’s early development years.

My children have been at Neutral Bay Kindy since they were 2. It has a great reputation and my children have been very happy there. Highlights include long term happy management and staff, a great range of activities and toys, and healthy food cooked on site. NBK has a wonderful feel and sets children up well with social, educational and life skills.

I have had 2 children at NBK and can honestly say it is the most organised, safe and well-run kindy I have ever come across. I cannot think of one area that requires improvement within the routines, policies or procedures and my kids thrive there. There is also nothing like Chef Fiona’s cooking! 5 star all around!


It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Neutral Bay Kindergarten. Over the past 7 years my three children have attend NBK and all have thrived in such wonderful preschool environment. Nick, Tania and their wonderful staff have made each one of my children feel secure and valued and have helped provide them all with the beginning academic and social skills needed as they make the transition from pre-school to primary school. The staff at NBK show genuine affection and concern to both children and adults alike. It is such a comfort to know that my children have had a great start to their education.


I can highly recommend NBK. When entrusting the care of your children to others the key concern is safety, and whether the carers will nurture your children as you would. NBK ticks both of these categories. All of the staff are amazing, and show genuine care and interest in the children. My children are (and have been) so happy in the loving environment that NBK provides.
