Quality Care in the heart of the Snowys

Gidgillys Early Education and Care Centre along with Jindabyne Preschool was established in 2006. Gidgillys is a privately owned licensed long day care centre and preschool offering high quality education and care services along with well balanced, nutritional meals. Gidgillys offers its education and care services Monday to Friday from 7.30am - 6pm. Occasional care through the winter season (June long weekend to October long weekend) is also available.

Gidgillys, as of 3rd February 2020, is proud to offer after school care for school aged children with Jindabyne OSHC.

Our qualified, loving and dedicated educators provide young children with opportunities to maximise their potential and develop a foundation for future success in learning. We provide educational programs for infants (0 - 2 years) in our Ladybugs classroom, toddlers (2 - 3 years) in our Gigglebugs classroom, pre-preschool (3 - 4 years) in our Starbugs classroom and the year before school (4 - 5 years) in our Jindabyne Preschool environment. Gidgillys also provides two outdoor play environments and a sustainability yard that play a large part in the children's education.

Following our philosophy and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), our role is to nurture, facilitate and support children's learning through play and their environment. Each child is seen as a capable learner and we believe they are active contributors to their own learning and environment.



Gidgillys has been rated as 'Exceeding' under the Rating and Assessment requirements by Australian Children's Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).


We would like to acknowledge the Ngarigo people who are the traditional owners of this land and also acknowledge First Australian's across the land. We pay respect to Elder's both past and present and extend that respect to other Indigenous Australians.
