Schools and Education
Learning doesn’t stop when we grow up. Ropes Crossing has a range of education facilities, from proposed childcare services through to a primary school and community-based learning and employment training.
A dedicated childcare site at Ropes Central was recently sold to Kids Korner – a childcare centre operator with 7 other centres around Sydney. Construction has commenced on the site at the corner of Hollows Parade and Pulley Drive with operations scheduled to commence in the second half of 2012.
Currently, Ropes Crossing Primary School caters for students in years K-6.
Ropes Crossing is not far from the University of Western Sydney.
