Balmoral Street Preschool and Occasional Care is a nurturing and stimulating environment where every child is encouraged to learn and have fun. We cater for 60 Preschool children and 10 Occasional Care places each day, welcoming children from diverse backgrounds and of all abilities.
Our prime location in the heart of the Blacktown CBD means we’re close to shops, TAFE and public transport.
Children are provided with amazing opportunities for exploration and discovery in our adventurous outdoor play spaces and fun playroom environments.
Our large outdoor adventure playground gives children the chance to explore our natural environment and work together in social play.
Each indoor playroom inspires creativity in a fun learning environment. Our friendly and qualified educators encourage all children in play-based learning using the ‘Early Years Learning Framework’, giving your child a great start to their education.
We pride ourselves on creating a welcoming home-away-from-home that is fun, caring, safe and secure.
Children First values family input so be assured, you are as important to us as your children are. Come on in and see for yourself how we can assist you and your child through this amazing time of life.

Margaret Vassallo, Centre Manager
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Centre Manager of both Children First Alpha Street Preschool and Balmoral Street Preschool and Occasional Care.
I’m passionate about being part of children’s early learning experiences and love getting to know all our children and working in partnership with their families.
The early years form such a critical period in a child’s life where foundations are laid for the future and our Educators provide you and your child with a wonderful and memorable time that you can look back on fondly for years to come.
I love popping into the rooms and seeing the children’s wonderful creations, especially art or construction. Sometimes they come up with such wonderful ideas that I could never imagine myself. I don’t mind an impromptu dance with the children either! I definitely connect with this age group the most and love the way everything is new and wonderful to young children.
I encourage an open-door policy and welcome you to come chat, share feedback or suggestions with me or your child’s educator at any time.
I look forward to welcoming you to Children First and seeing your child reach their full potential with us.
