Kurralee Childcare Prepares to Open in the New Year

Council has worked closely with the community to understand childcare requirements and ensure our youngest residents are well taken care of, relieving initial concerns parents had about the possibility of relocating their children. Manish and his family moved to Sydney from India and have no family support nearby, “we moved to Homebush West for Kurralee, so were incredibly disappointed when we heard it may close. Local residents, Diana and Asna agreed that they love the natural aspect of Kurralee and the green space, which is very important for families living in apartment blocks  Lydia from Lighthouse Early Learning Centre said “we are delighted to continue the long tradition of quality childcare in Homebush West, and look forward to working with the Council and community to provide local children with the best start possible.” Visit www.lighthousechildcare.com.au or contact them on 9091 9650 for information on available places.

Strathfield Christmas Carols 2019

This family fun-filled event will see Bressington Park turned into a Christmas wonderland with activities for the community featuring a community BBQ, kids’ entertainment including a petting farm, face painting, jumping castle, a visit from Santa Claus and special Movies in the Park screening of The Grinch (PG). Highlighting the event will be all-time Christmas favourites including Strathfield Symphony Orchestra and St Martha’s Primary School String Ensemble, new additions to the Carols stage the Strathfield Community Choir and local performer Van Sereno, as well as a children’s act and Donna Jeans Dance Force taking the stage with festive-themed performances. In light of recent bushfires and expected heatwave conditions increasing the likelihood of a fire ban in effect on the day, Strathfield Council will no longer have a fireworks display as part of the 2019 Strathfield Christmas Carols celebrations.
