We offer Explorers Playgroup, After School Care, Adult Classes and Workshops, In Conversation and special events as well as the twice-monthly Northside Produce Market.

The centre has continued its popularity as a creative hub, with lots of new classes, workshops and events developed and added to our program every year.

Each term we offer different adult classes (min. 18 yrs) including CreativeFood & BeveragesMusic & DanceHealth and Wellbeing, Languages and Lifestyle & Travel catering to varying tastes and levels of ability.

For children we offer our Explorer’s Playgroup providing creative play sessions for under 5s with experienced play leaders setting up a wide range of activities with an emphasis on child-initiated play.

We host Music & Movement classes for under 5’s on Friday mornings.

For 7-12 year olds we run an After School Care program. Each afternoon up to 105 school aged children make the most of the Centre’s facilities through our comprehensive program.

Throughout the year we host Independent and Centre Exhibitions, Film Nights and Community Forums. There’s always a host of FREE Community Events.

We organise and curate the popular and wonderfully vibrant Northside Produce Market. The market welcomes over 60 stallholders from around NSW on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month, except January which only runs on the 3rd Saturday.

NSCC features five large, sunlit rooms of varying sizes and with access directly onto the playground. We offer a Venue Hire service for birthdays, forums, meetings, classes and more. We warmly invite our community to share the wonderful facilities.

As a self-funded, independent community organisation, we are continually appreciative of the support we receive from North Sydney Council and our community.
