About St Nicholas Early Education Lochinvar

St Nicholas Early Education Lochinvar is a 144-place early education and care centre co-located with St Patrick’s Primary School, with an award-winning play environment that will impress parents and carers, and delight children. 

Our Lochinvar centre opened in 2018 in response to the growing needs of local families for quality early education and care. In 2022, the centre’s licensed places were increased from 124 to 144 to continue meeting these needs. 

The centre’s incredible learning environments feature bright and calming play rooms, large sandstone sandpits, tepees, bicycle tracks, garden beds, mud kitchens, water pumps, dry river beds and so much more.
