Kirinari Early Childhood Centre

Kirinari has a sustainable focus with connections to nature and culture.


Experiences provided reflect the children’s interests


Kirinari creates an environment where children can become enthusiastic, inspired, inquiring, engaged and challenged.


Kirinari has been providing community based high quality childhood education since 1974.



Located on the University of Canberra campus, Kirinari Early Childhood Centre provides quality care and educational programming for children from birth to school age. We offer care on a full-time or part-time basis, catering for the needs of University of Canberra students, staff and the general community. UC students have discounted fees.

We would like to acknowledge the Ngunnawal People, the traditional custodians of this land where Kirinari Early Childhood Centre stands. As “Kirinari” means a place of learning, we pledge to learn about and share the knowledge of the land and its peoples.
