Since Kids Club Helidon’s recent expansion to the Toowoomba region, we have been warmly welcomed by the local community. Our centre is conveniently located just minutes away from the heart of town, in a serene and rural setting that provides the perfect environment for early childhood learning and development.
At Kids Club Helidon, our team of dedicated Educators is committed to fostering a strong sense of belonging for children and their families. By providing a high-quality program that is tailored to each child’s individual observations and interests, we are able to prepare them for school readiness while supporting their unique developmental needs. Our team understands that every child is different and will develop at their own pace, and we work hard to keep families connected and involved in their child’s growth and learning journey.
Our play-based programs are designed to build on the principles and practices of the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), which is Australia’s national curriculum framework for early childhood education. Through hands-on exploration and learning, we aim to instil a love of lifelong learning in every child who attends our centre.
We are proud to offer a warm and welcoming environment where children can thrive and grow, and we believe that the best start to a child’s future begins at Kids Club Helidon.

Hello everyone, my name is Melynda and I’m the centre Director! I have a diploma in Early Childhood and have been in the industry for 7 years. I’m very passionate towards children and have two beautiful kids of my own!
I’m a very bright and bubbly person and always very approachable and welcoming! I’m very dedicated to my job and love coming up with new ways to keep our children engaged and learning. I look forward to meeting you all and welcoming you to our beautiful centre 🙂
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.
The Kids Club Enrolments Team can answer any of your questions or queries you might have in regards to enrolling, wait-listing, Childcare Subsidy and more.
