Welcome to Grey Ward Children's Centre

Grey Ward Children's Centre is an Integrated Service, which caters for families with children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age. The Grey Ward Children's Centre was the second Kindergarten to be established in Adelaide. It began in 1908 and was developed in the image of Lillian de Lissa who began training teachers in 1907 in a cottage at Franklin Street.

Grey Ward Children's Centre was the first Nursery School established in Adelaide taking children from 2 years of age. Today it is a non-profit, community based organisation, which is managed by a Management Committee consisting of interested parents and staff. The Centre also has a Service and Funding Agreement with the Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) to provide sessional Kindergarten to eligible 4 year olds.
