Welcome to 3 Bears Cottage.

3 Bears Cottage is a family run business locally owned for over 20 years by Renae Knight. Having 6 children of her own in which all 6 children at various times have been enrolled at the service, Renae has a great understanding of what busy families want and need.

Located in the beautiful beachside city of Coffs Harbour the service is only minutes away from the Coffs Harbour CBD making pick up and drop off time more of a breeze. We have eliminated the morning stress put on families rushing to get ready for work on time, by providing the children with all their daily needs at the service.

As we focus on the needs of the whole family, we don’t believe in closing over school holidays, as parents still need to work during these times and finding alternative child care arrangements bring many challenges for busy families. We operate 52 weeks a year, Monday to Friday, 7.30am – 6pm.

The whole family is welcomed to 3 Bears Cottage by accepting children from six weeks to school age, eliminating the needs for parents to make a number of drop offs in the mornings to various services. We accommodate this by having two baby rooms, one toddler room and one pre-school room.

Our Educators work with our families to build partnerships to encourage a sense of belonging upon entering our service. Ensuring good communication methods enables 3 Bears Cottage to maintain high quality care and appropriate support to our families. The service also recognises partnerships with the community as a fundamental belief. Collaborating and networking with other organisations with the community enhances educator learning.
