About Young Phoenix Academy

Young Phoenix Academy is a family-owned childcare service that provides high-quality early education and care programs to children aged six weeks to six years.

Our 154-place Menai Childcare Centre operates long daycare hours from 7:30 am – 6:00 pm on weekdays at 591 Old Illawarra Road, Menai NSW 2234.

The centre features six well-resourced classrooms and four adventurous outdoor play areas. Each age group has its own indoor and outdoor learning spaces specifically designed to suit the needs and interests of each class.

We provide complete early education and care programs for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers that focus on supporting children’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development to give your child the best start.


At Young Phoenix Academy, our philosophy of education is based on the belief that the best outcomes for children are achieved when children, educators, and families work in partnership. We believe children are naturally capable and curious learners and that our role as educators is to guide and support each child’s unique learning journey.
