Ermington Lambert Ave Preschool & Day Care

Ermington's most awarded preschool

Being Ermington Lambert Avenue started as Platypus Preschool and has received repeated nominations for early childhood education and care as well as Service of the Year awards. 

Situated right across the road from Ermington Village, Being Ermington Lambert Avenue is in a convenient location for families looking for Exceeding child care, daycare, kindergarten and preschool in Ermington, Newington, Rydalmere, Dundas, Melrose Park, West Ryde and the surrounding suburbs. 

Being Ermington maintains its original facade with modern learning environments, allowing for high-quality education delivered in nature and with charm. By working together with local schools, we provide the highest quality preschool program in the area to all the children in our care.

Holistic early learning for school and life

At Being, we believe that every child is a powerful, capable and responsible leader ready to emerge. Our expert early childhood educators at our Ermington preschool empower your child to develop outside of their age and stage in a fun, nurturing and supportive environment.

We believe that a child's love of learning and curiosity about the world starts at an early age. We want to help ignite those passions — our educators will be their early guides on this journey of self-discovery as they grow up with confidence.

Meet the Educators

Isabella Vittozzi

Centre Leader
Isabella began her journey studying and working in early childhood education when she was just 16 years old, where she grew a love for providing children with a safe and secure environment to grow and develop. Since then, Isabella has continued her studies and progressed in her career, becoming a Centre Leader at the age of 19. Isabella is passionate about mentoring and guiding educators to provide high quality educational environments for children. She enjoys building the capacity of teams and engaging in critical reflection to improve quality.

    Zinat Fail

    Educational Leader
    Zinat loves working in the fun and playful environment of early education, and the positivity that this brings to her day-to-day. She believes that the early years of a child’s life are some of the most important and finds fulfilment in supporting families and children through this time. 
    Zinat is proactive in creating new learning experiences and is very caring and nurturing by nature. She is well-loved by educators, families and children. 
    “Children are limitless, capable and active contributors to their community and society.” 

      Elyse Galloway

      Assistant Centre Leader
      Elyse has been with us for 3 years. Her favourite part of her role as an early educator is the ability to form meaningful connections with children and their families. She also cherishes watching each child grow into the powerful individuals they are.

      When she’s not engaging with the children and families at Being, Elyse’s favourite thing to do is spend time with her own friends and family.

        I had a wonderful experience here.

        They have great management and wonderful educators, that care about the community, parents and children. They also encourage children to learn while playing, talk and present their news, dance, sing and celebrate. The excursions are wonderful and I love that my daughter is learning more about the area and environment through them. - Mays

        Passionate educators with a personal approach.

        My son attends the centre and loves the learning experiences provided here. The educators are very passionate about children's development and pay close attention to how they are performing with personalised development plans. - Vibhor
