Hello, my name is Molly and I am the Director here at Kids Club Arana Hills. I have been in the Early Childhood Industry for 6 years and hold a Diploma of Children’s Services.
I believe in a Reflective Approach, this looks like, open-ended questions, real-world resources & forward planning. Children are capable – Children are capable of researching, hypothesising, and investigating. It’s my role as an educator to listen, inform when asked and to create engaging environments that provoke their problem-solving skills.
I firmly believe it takes a village to raise a child. I act with collaboration, adaptability, and empathy at the forefront of my decision making. ‘Arana Hills’ is an Aboriginal word for Welcome and that’s precisely how we would like all stakeholders feel.
I hope to see you soon and welcome you to the Kids Club Arana Hills Family with open arms and a loving heart!
At Kids Club we have certain room routines that educators follow. The routine will vary, depending on current events and activities. Having a routine in each of the rooms allows for smoother transitions into new activities, meals and rest time. The routine is available to families so you are aware of what your child is doing at certain times.
The day starts with family grouping sessions where breakfast is served. Here is when you can say goodbye to your little one. After breakfast, your child has time to play and learn at their own pace.
At this time of the morning, other children are still arriving, so the educators offer children different activities to engage in. The activities are purposefully selected to encourage our learning through play framework.
We then begin to transition into morning tea. After washing their hands your child will sit down where they choose and be served morning tea from the menu. If your child has dietary requirements they will be served an alternate meal.
Depending on the weather, your child will be offered to play indoors/outdoors for free playtime. This is where educators can make observations of what your child likes to do. During this time we also hold group activities with the children.
From 12 pm we begin to transition to lunchtime. Once your child’s hands are washed they will choose a seat where a hot lunch will be served to them. If your child has dietary requirements they will be served an alternate meal.
Sleep or rest time after lunch your child will have a rest in a peaceful tranquil room with educators patting if requested. If your child does not require sleep, they will take part in quiet activities such as reading.
After your child wakes up, afternoon tea will be served. If your child has dietary requirements they will be served an alternate meal. We encourage our toddlers and preschoolers to serve themselves their own afternoon tea.
Depending on the weather, your child will be offered to play indoors/outdoors for free playtime. This is where educators can make observations of what your child likes to do and prepare for future planned experiences based on interests.
Planned afternoon learning experiences. During this time we will engage your child in activities that are slightly more structured and educator-led. For example, yoga classes, painting lessons, group play and group learning moments.

"We have just enrolled our 1 year old son and he is settling in at the moment. He loves to explore the beautiful Rainforest 1 room and the outdoors playing area. The facilities in this centre are amazing! They have put in so much work to create a fun and beautiful environment for the children. The nursery has 2 cot rooms as well, which is great! The staff is also amazing, everyone I've met so far, from the Centre Director to all the educators have been so lovely. They have all made us feel so welcomed and they go above and beyond to help our son settling in. I am really really happy with my choice of daycare for my son!"Martina, Kids Club Arana Hills Parent
"Our 1 year old daughter has been with Kids Club Arana Hills since they opened and she loves it. We have noticed so many positive changes in her in such a short time. With the help of all the lovely Rainforest room educators, she has really settled in well and adapted to her new environment. The team have been very welcoming and we have appreciated their caring and kind approach. The communication has been great and we can see that they are really trying to get to know our family. We feel confident that our daughter is being very well looked after and we would highly recommend KC Arana Hills."Nicola, Kids Club Arana Hills Parent

The Australian Government provides families with financial assistance to help cover the costs of approved child care – the Child Care Subsidy.
Since 2 July 2018, Australia has a new child care package. Under the new package, the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) replaces the existing Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate. CCS is the main way the Government assists families with their child care fees.

The transition for children into child care is an important milestone for children and families. This transition can be challenging and emotional for both the parent and the child. Therefore, we offer you this information to help the transition process.
We invite families to come for orientation the week before they start: stay in the centre with your child, meet the educators and make yourself familiar with the routines prior to your child’s first day. This assists you and your children to feel more at ease and comfortable with the new environment.
