“I believe that as an early childhood educator it is my aim to inspire children’s lives and be part of building foundations for life learning.”
Miss Cathy joins Kids Club with years of experience in the Childcare Sector and brings a wealth of knowledge to the team. She has a Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood, as well as a Diploma of Children’s Services. As Kids Club Elizabeth St’s Director, her philosophy is that it is important to build strong partnerships with families, educators and community to be able to make a difference in the care and education of children. Miss Cathy passionately believes that children learn through play, which allows them to build relationships, learn to resolve conflicts, negotiate and regulate their behaviours.
She is excited about both the challenges and the rewards of being a critical part of your child’s 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.
"We have seen such great improvements with our son. We’ve also seen he is more eager to do activities and explore, taking less time to come out of his shell around other people. I just want to say my husband and I really appreciate all the effort, hard work, love and care that every carer has ever shown towards him. You are all doing really great job and putting our son into Kids Club was one of the best things we’ve done as a family."Saengtip, Kids Club Elizabeth St Parent
"We’ve been attending Kids Club for a year now and my son loves it! The indoor environment is homely and gorgeous, with a fantastic sprawling outdoor space that has to be seen to be believed! The activities, resources, materials and even the quality of toys are absolutely top notch as is the curriculum which is varied and excellent with activities ranging from weekly language lessons to sports day and music classes.

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.
