Unique history

Brisbane City Child Care was opened 2004 by Prime Minister John Howard and is a small local business, owned and operated by Chris and Margaret.

With over 60 years’ combined experience working in child care and child care development, Chris and Margaret found 86 Astor Terrace to be a the perfect inner-city building which could provide ideal spaces for outdoor and indoor playgrounds and exceptional egress.

The centre was the very first of its size in the Brisbane CBD.



Delivered goals

We believe the home is the primary source for children to learn the fundamental attitudes, ideas and skills for life. Our centre builds on their home environment and provides wide ranging educational opportunities for young children to participate in new and rewarding experiences and group interaction with others. Attention is always given to their individual needs, abilities and interests.

Autonomy and relatedness

For every child to learn to get along with others, develop a healthy self-image and become a member of the group.


To create a variety of learning skills which encourage children to thrive within their environment and enjoy learning new things every day.


For children to have a positive sense of self and take pride in their work and accomplishments. We’d like all kids to feel confident to take on whatever comes their way.


Brisbane City Child Care has achieved the highest level of accreditation since opening and has recently been rated as exceeding the new National Quality Framework in all areas.
