We see children as unique and capable individuals, with their own interests, talents, skills, and ideas and we as educators value, respect and appreciate this uniqueness

Kid’N Around is a privately operated early education and care service that
opened in May 2006. It is a family business that is managed with the
standard that I expect not only as an early childhood educator, but also a
mother.

Kid’N Around Early Education Centre was designed specifically to cater for children aged 2 to 6 years. Our staff consist of a minimum of one Early Childhood Teacher, three Diploma trained educators and two Certificate trained educators who are highly motivated to offer your children the best pre-school education available. We always meet, and often exceed, the legislated required staff to child ratio’s.

In 2014, our centre achieved an Exceeding rating in all areas of the National Quality Standard. Kid’N Around Early Education Centre is not a factory style childcare centre. We only cater for 36 children per day in an intimate environment where the children know each other by name.

Our indoor and outdoor areas are designed to stimulate learning and development, foster wonder and exploration within our natural environment and encourage interactions to foster positive relationships within everyone at the Centre. The building is security monitored and all indoor areas are air conditioned.

We are regulated by the Department of Education and Communities and all families
are able to apply for Child Care Benefit and the Child Care Rebate.

Personally, I have worked in the childcare industry since 2002, starting as an educator at another local childcare centre. I was then a nanny for a number of years before I opened a family daycare. I have attained my own Bachelor of Teaching (Birth to Five Years) and a Bachelor of Education (Habilitation). I am committed to providing a service that is of high quality with passionate and dedicated educators. Kid’N Around Early Education Centre is a Centre that involves the whole family and feels like an expansion of the home. We believe at our Centre we are better equipped to offer quality care in an environment that is nurturing, personal and less overwhelming for young children.
