The Kids Club Kindergarten Program is an approved program by the Queensland State Government as an educational platform for children intending to start school the following year (child must be 4 by June 30). As an Approved Kindergarten provider, parents can receive a discount (if eligible) against preschool fees through this Queensland Government initiative.
Designed and run by our experienced early childhood teachers, they follow the Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines which are designed to prepare children for school through effective learning principles. With foundations in building positive relationships, identifying, and working with emotions, creating personal identity, and promoting wellbeing, our curriculum is based on the Kids Club core pillars, developed from the National Quality Framework as set by ACECQA.
Integrated into the long day care setting, the rooms are designed to resemble a kindergarten environment. During school terms, children spend each day with the same teacher who provides a minimum of 5 hours per day of teaching in accordance with the Guidelines. The educational program continues outside of these periods so that your child receives the full benefit of Kids Club’s exceptional learning programs.
Kids Club centres provide absolutely everything your child needs to be comfortable all day, making the transition from home to daycare much easier. Check the video below to see everything included in your fees.
We transition children in our rooms based on their developmental needs.
Our daily fees are based on your child’s age group, they are all-inclusive: you will not have to pay any extra costs.

Sam started her studies in Early Childhood Learning in 2014 after spending over a year working with children with additional needs, and then moved to Australia where she has been at this centre since 2015.
She has always enjoyed working with children, watching them grow and develop, instilling confidence and competence to enable them to be lifelong learners.
After starting as an assistant and working her way up to lead educator before moving into the Centre Director position in 2019, Sam has built a strong team of educators who work passionately alongside her to make the centre what it is today.
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.

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.
