Hello and welcome to our beautiful centre. I’m Alison and I am passionate about children’s education and care. I have been in the childcare industry for 30 years because I believe that children are the world’s greatest resource and should be treated as such. I believe that children have an inbuilt desire to learn and grow and that as parents and educators it is our privilege and duty to nurture and develop this.
I believe it is vital that we have great expectations of children, believing that each child can achieve anything that they set their mind to. My role is to instil in each child a sense of their own identity and a belief that they have the power within to reach for the stars.
I believe that all people are created equal, no person has the right to make another person feel that they do not measure up for any reason. My role is to ensure that all children understand that cultural, gender and physical differences are what makes us unique and interesting, promoting curiosity and acceptance.
I believe that the parent is the acknowledged expert on their children and that my role is to be a supportive partner to families, working with them to bring out the very best in their children. I believe that children’s developmental progress should be tracked to ensure that we provide the best possible learning opportunities for each individual child.
I believe that it is each child’s right to love, laughter and fun, as an educator I believe that instilling resilience, determination and a sense of fun in each child, provides them with valuable tools for the future.
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 lunch. 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.
"Amazing. Like a second family. Facilities, teachers, programs, daily communications, food, events - all the best I’ve seen at a day care centre with a truly wonderful woman - Shelli, at the helm."Michelle, Kids Club Clarence St Parent
"The chef makes amazing meals on site for the children that I’m tempted to dump my lunch, so I can eat with them! What I also love is their breastfeeding friendly premises. Because I work close enough, I am able to go in each day to give my daughter a breastfeed. "Winnie, Kids Club Clarence Street Parent
" I can't recommend this place higher and I would be thrilled to talk to any mums or dads who are having any resistance or are going through a tough point. I toured 17 centres before I chose this one, and it was the best decision I've made in a while."Aurora, Kids Club Clarence Street 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.
