My name is Courtney and I have the privilege of being a part of the award-winning Kids Club family. I have worked in the Early Childhood Education industry for over 11 years starting as a trainee educator and working my way up to Centre Director. Throughout my experience I have worked in many different roles and developed valuable experiences in doing so. My favourite part of my Early Childhood journey has been the beautiful relationships and connections made with the children, families, and the community.
I am passionate about healthy lifestyles physically, mentally, and nutritionally and in my spare time I enjoy hiking and exploring the outdoors. I have hiked many trails across Australia and look forward to exploring more overseas in the future. I love connecting with nature and exploring what our beautiful woods has to offer. I am an advocate for outdoor play and believe children learn best through play, connecting with nature and the world around them.
Being a huge advocate for children, I believe being in the Early Childhood industry is very rewarding as we can make valuable contributions to children’s lives, helping to shape and mould our future leaders. Children have the opportunity to build relationships with various stakeholders that foster their emotional and physical skills to succeed in life.
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.
"My son has been coming here since late 2019 and Miss Jade, Miss Cattie, Miss Keesh and Miss Taylor in particular, are so amazing with him. They always make sure safety precautions are taken, especially during these trying times and Harris always has a smile on his face at drop off and pick up. I can easily tell that's the product of great childcare."Brooke, Kids Club Newtown 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.
