SDN Ultimo is a unique 55-place centre located inside TAFE premises, providing early childhood education and child care for children of TAFE students and the local community.

Your child will love their day at SDN Ultimo, with access to open, bright, nature-inspired, secure spaces, and plenty of room for growing, inquisitive and energetic bodies to play, relax and explore. We have strong links and relationships with the community so our children enjoy regular excursions to local spots.

Our qualified and experienced educators use intentional teaching and play-based learning to enhance every child’s desire to know and learn. We welcome the diversity of our families and the local community and we encourage participation in all aspects of our curriculum.

Centre History

SDN Ultimo History

The traditional owners of the Ultimo area are the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation.

SDN Ultimo has been operating within the Ultimo TAFE grounds since 2002 after a successful tender in 2001 to manage two TAFE child care centres at the Ultimo and Petersham campuses.

In 2010 SDN Ultimo was proud to be one of 20 centres across Australia to participate in the first trial to test the workability of the new National Quality Standards.

Since its beginnings, SDN Ultimo has undergone many changes and has always reflected a strong connection with the families in this vibrant and diverse educational community.
