Inside a room of The Cottage Ashmore

We intentionally keep our childcare centre intimate

so you feel like part of our family

Nestled amidst the leafy streets of Ashmore, adjacent to Trinity Lutheran College, you’ll find our charming cottage. Here in our harmonious setting of timber floors and pastel furnishings, your tiny tots will feel right at home.

With ratings that meet national quality standards, high quality Kindergarten program and an open-door policy that allows families to feel involved, our Cottage is so much more than a childcare facility.

A place where you’ll quickly know everyone by name. A place that will ease all of your apprehensions. Come and experience our boutique early learning difference.

These kind words from our parents say it all.

After a few weeks at a bigger, new centre down the road, I moved my 1yo twins to the Cottage. I couldn’t have made a better move. It’s so nice to feel valued and treated like family. Jess & all the educators are genuinely beautiful people and have helped my girls settle so quickly. They have taken the stress out of drop off and pick up and couldn’t be more helpful. Simple tasks can be overwhelming with multiples, but you all make my mornings & afternoons so much easier. Thank you 😊 🙏🏼

The best centre I've ever dealt with. A small, family orientated facility where my child thrives every day. The staff are friendly and genuinely care for the parents, kids and each other. I love how the teachers/educators are rotated so all the kids and teachers know each other. Hands down THE BEST the Gold Coast has to offer in early childhood. Well done guys and thank you for every little thing you do for our little people.

We came across this unique daycare and it wasn't like any others we had seen. It has a very good vibe and unique look. The staff are very lovely and professions- and the teachers are just the best my kiddies love them all. The indoor and outdoor areas are great with lots of toys and not to mention the delicious menu of food for the kiddies. Highly recommend!!!

The Cottage is such a wonderful place to drop your children off in the morning too. You are happy and they are happy!! We are so thrilled with the personable, professional, caring and nurturing environment that we have come to love there.

The Cottage was recommended to us and we are so happy we have chosen the centre. All the staff are so lovely and caring. And I love that they are small groups.

Great childcare centre! We love that it is smaller centre and that they provide a very personal experience. Our daughters are 2 and 4 and they absolutely love it!


The staff are very friendly and approachable, always greeting us with happiness. They go above and beyond to make my daughter feel loved and safe, which is so important to me. She is always happy to be there and happy when I pick and drop her off. I also love the activities and experiences the educators plan for the kids during the day, really purposeful and creative.


The staff go over and above. Holly was at another childcare centre before The Cottage and we thought that centre was wonderful but once we experience The Cottage curriculum for toddlers it is 10/10. From the minute I drop Holly I know she is in the best hands I could leave her with apart from her own parents. The constant communication each day and report on what she did, learnt, ate and slept is next level.


This centre is the best on the coast. Great food, facilities, programming, staff and location. You guys go the extra mile and as a parent I see it in my child’s development and wellbeing. Thank you for helping me raise my daughter to be a resilient and caring human.


Lovely staff always willing to help and always smiling, amazing job at taking care and teaching my child as they’re always happy to be there. Centre is alway clean and tidy and has a homey feel. My child enjoys the cool activities like sports and having fire trucks visit kindy and free coffee is a bonus! Thank you guys


We love the Cottage. The staff is amazing and my son absolutely loves it. I love the size of the centre as well (not too big and not too small). I love that we don't feel like "just a number". We have a warm and positive relationship with all the staff and even some of the other parents.


The staff are amazing, from the front desk through to the class room. I love how it's a smaller daycare, you get a feel of community.
