    Meet Kim

    I have over 21 years experience in the early childhood sector, I believe in an inclusive environment where all are welcomed. All children have the right to an education and our roles as early childhood educators is to provide a safe learning environment for children to thrive, grow and develop life long skills for future community participation. I believe it is imperative be guided by children's voices Dedicated and passionate team of educators with fantastic educator retention many with 3-8 years of service. We believe the environment is our 3rd teacher and we need to make it inviting, interesting and stimulating for children to engage and learn through play experiences.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    We provide most of the essentials that may be needed throughout the day. We ask that you pack and label; spare clothes, water bottle, comfort items/dummies. And if your child requires a sleeping bag, milk bottles, formula, or breast milk.

    We offer orientation sessions for families to come along before the first day to have a short play with us. These sessions are usually close to the first day and act as a good lead in. It gives you, your child, and the educators time to get to know each other and the opportunity to ask any questions or provide important information. These sessions are usually organized once enrolment is confirmed, they last for 2 hours and are free of charge. Talking about it at home is also a great way to get your child excited for all the amazing experiences they will get to be a part of.

    Be positive! Make the drop off a happy experience and take a few minutes to help your child to settle in. The mornings can be busy, but taking some time to find an activity your child enjoys and saying goodbye can help for a smoother start to their day. There will always be a warm and caring educator on hand to help. You are always welcome to give the centre a call after you have left for an update.

    The educator to child ratio varies depending on state and territory, we meet or exceed this ratio. 0 to 24 months the ratio is 1:4 in all states and territories. 24 to 36 months the ratio is 1:5 in QLD and SA, and 1:4 in VIC. Over 36 months the ratio is 1:11 in QLD, SA and VIC. You can find out more on the ACECQA website.

    It is important to take the time to find a centre where you feel confident and comfortable and know your child will be safe, happy, and protected. Find a centre that provides a learning environment where careful guidance and role modelling by educators can help children become competent, independent and develop valuable life skills. It is also important to consider aspects that will impact your family such as location, cost, and inclusions.

    This centre deserves more than a 5 star rating! My son has a disability & Kim as well as her team have gone above & beyond to help us through everything. My son has progressed so much! He loves coming to this centre everyday. We don't know where we would be without the reoccurring support from everyone at this centre.
