About Us

Welcome to SIPE Family Daycare!

SIPE Family Daycare is the perfect place where your babies, toddlers and preschoolers will play and learn! In our gardens, situated at 12 Drake Street, Artarmon – 5 minutes walk from Artarmon Train Station, every child is special and mirth and the smile are essential ingredients of innovative programs “learn through play”.

Family day care operates under the same National Quality Framework (NQF) as other forms of childcare; incorporating national regulations, quality and qualification standards, educational frameworks and an assessment and ratings process. In fact, family day care has operated for over 40 years in Australia. Family Day Care is an approved service for the purpose of CCB & CCR therefore parents are eligible to the same Federal Government Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate subsidies.

The home based setting provides a familiar, safe and secure learning environment. Current research confirms the importance of strong relationships with significant adults to a child’s early learning. Family day care’s small group environment facilitates strong bonds and promotes effective early learning and social development.

Located in a beautiful building, spacious and furnished specifically to meet the child’s needs, we ensure uniqueness and individuality that each child is recognized, nurtured and cared well. Both learning and play areas are specially designed to provide continuity of activities in the interior, designed to inspire and nurture imagination and the continued development of our children.

Your educator, Maria Lina Mazari, has lived in Artarmon with her family for more than 17 years and has been an Assistant Educator for more than 3 years. Her children are all grown – so she doesn’t have any young ones of her own during the day. She has whole rooms dedicated to the daycare where the children have ample space for playing, dining and sleeping safely. She also has an on site outdoor playground and running field which are all fenced in for safety and security purposes.

She is offering long day care, vacation care and occasional care subject to availability. The daycare is 5 minutes walk from/to Artarmon Station with unlimited parking available and close to Chatswood CBD.
