About St Nicholas Early Education Cardiff

St Nicholas Early Education Cardiff is an 84-place early education and care centre with bright and engaging play rooms which all open onto an atrium-style outdoor play environment featuring a wondrous assortment of natural and man-made play equipment. 

Our Cardiff centre is centrally located in the suburb’s business district, offering a convenient drop-off and pick-up for families who live locally or those on their way to work. 

The crown jewel of St Nicholas Early Education Cardiff is the impressive wooden pirate ship located in the centre’s outdoor play environment, complete with portholes, sails and a crow’s nest – all made from locally-sourced wood and materials. The walls of the outdoor space are adorned with bright colours, landscaped gardens and beautiful sandstone sandpits to encourage exploration and discovery.

Centre Director – Carley Matthews

Carley Matthews, a dedicated professional in the field of early childhood education and care, serves as the Centre Director at St Nicholas Early Education Cardiff. With a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care, Carley brings a wealth of knowledge and a remarkable 9 years of experience to her role.

Before assuming her position at Cardiff, Carley demonstrated her expertise as the Assistant Director at St Nicholas Early Education’s sister centre in Chisholm since 2021. This role allowed her to contribute significantly to the growth and learning experiences of the children under her care while supporting the day-to-day operations of the centre.

Carley’s passion is deeply rooted in the pivotal first five years of a child’s life. Recognising the immense significance of this developmental period, she finds profound reward in witnessing and actively participating in the transformative journey of early education. As a firm advocate for learning through play, Carley believes in creating an environment that fosters exploration and allows children to discover the magic of the world through their own unique perspectives.
