Who are we?

Sydney Catholic Early Childhood Services (SCECS) is a not-for-profit service catering for children and families from our Catholic schools and local community. SCECS currently operates Outside School Hours Care and Early Childhood services at several Catholic schools and Parishes within the Sydney Archdiocese.  Our Centres provide quality education and care programs with qualified and passionate educators.

All our services operate in close partnership with the local Catholic school and Parish community.
