About Us



Gerringong Coastal Cottage


The Coastal home-like learning environment for education and exploration where you can get creative in our natural indoor and outdoor spaces.


Come in and say Hello!

We believe that childhood is a special, unique time of life, to be valued and enjoyed. At Gerringong Coastal Cottage, we understand that the ‘Early Years’ is a time for foundations to be laid for future health, learning and wellbeing.


We value, encourage and respect each individual who belongs to this community and understand that every child, family and educator bring their own culture, knowledge and experience to share with our community.


We acknowledge, value and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and future. We acknowledge the Aboriginal Community’s support, interactions and participation in our preschool community. Our Coastal Cottage Country Acknowledgement is integral part of our daily practices where the Traditional Owners, the Waddi Waddi people of the Dharawal nation, are recognised by children, educators and families.

Our Philosophy.

Educators respect the multiple cultural ways of knowing, seeing, living and celebrate the benefits of diversity and honour differences. All decisions are made and stem from our philosophy that affect the children, families, staff, curriculum and community by referring to our philosophy.


Our educators are encouraged to work as a team, learning from and supporting one another, through collaborative partnerships. Open communication, motivation and acquiring new skills through ongoing learning, professional development and reflective practices helps educators gain insights that support, inform and enrich decision-making about children’s learning.


Educator interactions and communication with children aim to give high praise and encouragement to help develop children’s self confidence, self-esteem and independence. It is of great importance that we promote child and family wellbeing; our focus on child protection is highly integrated into all aspects of our roles and responsibilities as educators. We understand that it is our duty of care to ensure that children are safe and protected from harm.

Our Educators.
