Welcome to Bambino’s Kindergarten Bowral Street!
Welcome to Bambino’s Kindergarten Bowral Street – Bowral! We are open from 7am to 6pm and cater for children from birth to 6 years.
As part of our service, we provide nutritious meals for breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and a late snack. As we understand different children have different dietary requirements, we have our very own cook who prepares meals tailored to your child’s needs. We like to promote positive attitudes towards food and we do this through positive encouragement and active discussions about healthy eating habits.
Our centre proudly offers a preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more, your child will become school ready.
Here at Bambino’s Kindergarten Bowral Street, we are always looking at different ways that we can give back to our environment. Our Sustainability Plan utilises different aspects of our daily operations to make sure we limit out impact on the environment. The children can assist in our vegetable garden to grow and nurture wholesome foods that can be used in their own meals. We also aim to purchase less packaging, reuse packaging we do have and use it for craft materials.
We would love the opportunity to show you around our childcare centre, so feel free to pop in and say hello or contact our Family Support Team to organise a tour.

Meet the Centre Manager
My career in the Early Childhood Industry sector began in 2012. In 2017 I continued my study pathways to obtain my Bachelor of Teaching (Birth to 5 years) degree at Charles Sturt University. During my career, I have worked in a range of roles including an Early Childhood Teacher and Educational Leader.
My passion in Early Childhood began in my high schooling years. This passion continued through into my adult life where i undertaken study options to enhance my knowledge and understanding of the Early Years. I enjoy researching and furthering my own knowledge, particularly based around topics of interest. This allows me to keep up to date with current research which guides my programming approach and understanding of child development.
Bambino’s Kindergarten Bowral Street offers a family home style setting. Educators understand and support children’s learning and development by providing high quality learning opportunities through play-based learning approaches. These environments allow children to imagine, create, explore and construct. Educators place a high emphasis on their relationships with children, ensuring each child feels safe, secure and supported within the service.
Our educators place a high value on the understanding of children’s families being paramount to children’s learning and development. We understand each family is unique, with different beliefs, culture and family traditions. We welcome family input and centre participation from our families, in whatever way our families feel most comfortable.
We look forward to meeting you and showing you what our service has to offer.

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect from a centre tour?
A centre tour is a convenient way to experience the centre of your choice and meet with our qualified educators at a time suitable to your family schedule. Bambino’s also offers the virtual tour option in all our centres. Click here to book a tour online.
On the day of the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to observe practices and interactions within the centre environment. You’ll be able to see all the rooms and playgrounds, ask the team members any questions you have in mind, and get all the information you need to make the best decision for your child.
Do I have to be on a waitlist?
Bambino’s Family Support team will add your child’s name to our waitlist if one of our centres is currently full in your child’s age group. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available.
We also do monthly check-ins to review the availability, and you will receive a text message confirming if you’re still happy to remain on the waitlist each month. If you would like to get an update at any point, you’re welcome to reach out on our Web Chat or give us a call.
Our Family Support team can also help you find more G8 early learning centres near you, with the same offerings at the Bambino’s centre you are interested in that have immediate availability.
What can I do to help my child prepare for starting care?
It’s common for a child to experience separation anxiety when they first start child care. When you’re getting ready to start child care, you can help your child overcome anxieties by visiting the child care centre together for a Stay and Play session, and easing into new routines at home.

What should I pack my child for their first day?
Most of our Bambino’s child care and early education centres offer the following:
- Nappies and wipes
- Sunscreen and hats
- Nutritious meals prepared by our in-house cook
Some centres also provide sheets and formula, so you may not need to remember to pack them.
For nursery children, be sure to bring: nappy rash cream, dummies, bottles and teats, comfort toys or blankets, three spare outfits, spare socks and a plastic bag for wet clothes.
For toddlers and preschool or kindergarten-aged children, it’s best to bring: spare underwear, water bottle or sippy cup, sun hat, closed-toe shoes, two spare outfits, spare socks and a plastic bag for wet clothes.
Plus anything else your individual child may need, such as breast milk, a sleeping bag, a comforter or medication.
It’s best to speak to your centre of choice for a full list of everything included.
How do I get updates on my child's day?
Bambino’s uses Xplor Home as our family communication app. It is the best and easiest way to keep track of your child’s day. After you enrol your child with the centre, you can utilise Xplor Home to book child care days, manage your account, receive the photographs that capture your child’s learning, learn about your child’s progress, as well as keep up-to-date with upcoming centre events and important information.
What if my child gets sick?
If your child shows signs of an infectious illness when they arrive at the centre or becomes sick during the day, you may be notified that you need to make alternative arrangements or pick up your child from the centre, and keep them home until they are no longer infectious. While we understand that this can be inconvenient, Bambino’s is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.
Under the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), families are allowed 42 absence days per child, per financial year. These can be taken for any reason, including public holidays and when children are sick, without the need for families to provide documentation.
