Long daycare and Preschool for children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age

We believe

A Magical Time Children’s Centre is a beautiful place where children not only feel wonderful and important but where the environment shows children that they can be anything or anyone they want to…with a little imagination.

At A Magical Time Children's Centre we believe in providing a supportive, loving and welcoming environment for all children, families and educators

What our families have to say


At A Magical Time we feel at home


…loving staff combined with a playful and safe environment for my child to enjoy every magical day.


There is always a positive and happy atmosphere…It outshines any other centre I’ve attended.


My little boy attends 'A Magical Time' and loves it. He gets so excited when he gets to go. The girls are great with the kids and they can give you a full re-cap of there day come home time. Renae and Dean the owners are great and make the dropping off process easy when you know that they are going to be under great care and supervision.


My daughter loves going to day care. The teachers are great; they are always willing to give a helping hand with anything. My daughter is coming along great, she loves singing and dancing and can sing her ABC already and she is only 2 and can count to 10 and getting there with colours and animals. A Magical Time has added to her social skills and helped with her development. I would definitely refer them to anyone thinking about day care. I know I can walk out the door and know she is in great hands.
