We provide high quality child care for every child in our care. We take responsibility for the health, safety and development of the children in our care in a safe, nurturing environment where they can grow, explore, play and relax with other children and adults in an atmosphere of patience, sensitivity and tolerance. We see the link between home and child care as a vital one and consequently value parental involvement. Our Open-Door policy ensures that at any time, parents can speak to staff and management about their child, raise any questions or concerns, and of course provide input into their child's time at Kids @ Kindy.
By providing a loving, healthy, stable and secure environment, we encourage your child to develop to his or her fullest potential. Your child will learn and develop in a variety of ways. Children learn by new experiences; repetition, exploring and adult input. Most importantly, children learn and develop individually and at their own pace. Other contributing factors to development are being able to trust and therefore develop socially.
We program for the needs of each individual child. In each group of children there is a qualified carer who is constantly observing the motor, social and cognitive aspects of each child's development. We foster relationships with parents based on open communication and mutual respect. Through this, we listen carefully to parents regarding their child's particular needs or the general care their child is receiving at Kids @ Kindy.
Both Parental input and the teachers' observations are used as a tool to develop a suitable program for the needs of each child as a unique person.
Programs are prepared weekly to maintain a constant environment for learning. The programs are developmentally based, nourished by play, fostering emotional health and building satisfying social relationships. Programming caters for the needs of the "whole" child, in all areas of development:
Social / Emotional
Cognitive / Intellectual
We believe learning requires hands-on experiences, otherwise known as "play"! This is why our children love their days at Kids @ Kindy; what they don't know is how much they are learning!!
