“We congratulate our children in getting offers from top schools. ”
Top quality in education

We strive to become the best childcare
in Hornsby Area

We spend 30% more budget in education to employ the BEST Teachers to give our children Top Quality Education.


Our team of educators are highly qualified. Most of them hold at least a Masters Degree. Our Educational Leader holds a PhD degree. 

The owner and management team are all educators, Profit is not our top priority!

We are a group of mothers and have worked in the early learning education industry for over 10 years. 

We understand and have deep passion in early childhood education. We regularly meet and discuss about how we can provide better care and education for our children and to support their individual development. 

We combine research-based practice and theories with innovative approaches to ensure each child is given the best opportunity to reach their potential. We are proud to offer specialised educational programmes and experiences that are tailored to each child’s individual needs. This includes  STEM Project, Secret Garden, Ai Linguistic (Chinese, Spanish, Hindi), Ai Creativity, School Readiness (Singaporean-curriculum based) and more.


At Ai Kids Academy Hornsby, we strive to create a “community-like” environment for families and staff. We are much more than an early learning centre. We value the relationships we have forged with families and work hard to ensure that everyone feels right at home. We also provide an array of additional services to help families meet the needs of their children, including nutrition assistance, health and safety advice, and parental education.

Ai Kids Academy Hornsby has a small group of dedicated and passionate early childhood professionals who comes from diverse cultural backgrounds, comprising of  Australian, Chinese, Singaporean, Brazilian, Indian and Napoleon background.

We recognise that children and families come from different culture background. Each family has their own needs for care.

We create an individualised plan for each child and their family, to cater for preferences or special requirements.

For example, we provide special dietary accomodations such as allergy diet, requests for warm water or no beef diet. We do provide an international menu to introduce food from different countries to their children. 

We are a boutique centre and our staff to child ratio is above the department requirement.

2 weeks fREE orientation

We believe that a short orientation is not enough.

You can truly understand how your child spends the day in their “home-feel” centre
