Young Academics Cranebrook is giving back to the community one drive at a time.

Established as a family-owned business, Young Academics Early Learning Centres emphasise pedagogy, learning and individuality.

Taking this philosophy to heart, Young Academics is taking it one step further to ensure they are building a close relationship with the local community and with the families of the centre.

Centre Manager of the Cranebrook centre, Ctasy Peterson said that Young Academics Cranebrook is a small community.

“Our goal is to create the feeling of one big family, and we felt it was important to build these relationships with the families and build community involvement,” she said.

“Over Christmas, we ran a toy drive for Westmead Children’s Hospital, so in the weeks leading up to Christmas, we received donations from families and local members of the community that we were able to take to the hospital.”

Ms Peterson said the toy drive is not the only community initiative, with Young Academics continuing to support the community with various charity events in 2021.

“When we see an opportunity to help the local community, we work together with our families to do what we can,” Ms Peterson said.

Young Academics focuses on learning through play and exploration with specially developed programs to ensure children ages six weeks to six years reach the appropriate milestones while also focusing on children’s individuality.

With local centres based in Cranebrook, Glenmore Park and Penrith, you are sure to find a centre near you giving back to the community.
