Meet Janene, Your Centre Director

I have worked in early education for around 30 years. I hold an Associate Diploma in Childcare and a Diploma of Business specifically related to leadership in the early childhood sector. I worked my way up from student to assistant to room leader and have worked in management of long day care for nearly 20 years.

I believe that children are the centre of their own learning and that we need to allow them the space to explore, wonder and create independently. I am inspired by the families, children and by educators at our centres. They teach me something every day and I like that we are on this learning journey together.

I believe the children’s ideas and interests are the basis of a curriculum. It simply would not exist without them and are what drives the evolution of experiences. Combined with intentional teaching and our observations, extension and documentation of their ideas and interests assist to continue to develop the curriculum.

When I’m at home I am usually kept busy by my twins and if I have time you will find me reading, baking and watching movies.

Centre Activities

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.

Featured Parent Testimonials

"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. "

"The staff are friendly yet professional. They helped us make the transition of our daughter into the new environment as smooth as possible. The facilities are brand new and they have a really nice setup. Lunch is provided for the children and you get a daily journal emailed in the evenings so you can see what they've been up to."

"My little one year old is so well looked after, cared for, and loved by the incredibly kind and attentive educators. With the constant care and attention, my daughter has settled into a regular routine and is thriving.  The education curriculum that is being offered is wonderful, my one year old is always learning new things, doing arts and crafts, and exploring in the 'out of this world' play area. My mind is at ease while I work knowing that you are taking such good care of my special little girl. :)"

Child Care Subsidy

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.

Child Care Subsidy Net Fee Calculator

We have developed a Child Care Subsidy Net Fee Calculator, to give you an idea of how much your out of pocket costs are after the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) has been applied at your nominated Kids Club centre. Click here to go to the Kids Club Child Care Subsidy Calculator

Preparing for the First Week

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.
