Community Kids Bargo Child Care Centre

About Us

Welcome to Community Kids Bargo Early Education Centre. Our Centre provides a rich, nurturing environment for children between the ages of six weeks to six years and is open from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm.

Our qualified educators and assistants are trained in early childhood development and our centre is designed and equipped to meet the unique needs of children in each appropriate age range.

As well as offering a courtesy bus and nutritious meals prepared each day by a qualified cook, the centre also provides age appropriate development programs based on the Early Years Learning Framework and a bachelor qualified teacher.

Individual children’s cultural, religious and nutritional needs are catered for and we encourage communication from parents who like to check on their child’s progress throughout the day.

We welcome you to contact us or drop in to learn more about this great centre!

Director Profile

Emma Murtagh

My name is Emma and I am the director here at Community Kids Bargo Early Education Centre.

I knew from a young age that I wanted a career in the childcare industry. I enjoyed babysitting since primary school and loved my early childhood classes through high school.

I have been working in the child care industry for 5 years. I got my first job at a child care centre where I completed my traineeship. Once I had finished my certificate III I began working full-time within the industry.

When I got offered a full time job at Bargo I was thrilled. I started as a room assistant and worked my way up to the room leader’s position. I finished my diploma in 2011 and I got my first taste of the director’s role while filling in for maternity leave. I knew that this was what I wanted to do. The opportunity came up to take the director’s position permanently and I took up the offer.

At Community Kids Bargo we strive to provide a long day care setting that is warm, nurturing, fun, challenging and developmentally appropriate while providing quality care. We do this by having a great team moral, strong and trusting staff and parent relationships and fostering every single child’s individual development, needs and interests.

On behalf of myself and the team here at Community Kids Bargo, we look forward to meeting you and your family and helping you on your journey in life.

“My son has been going to the centre for over a year now and both him and myself love the centre. I couldn’t imagine putting him anywhere else the staff are so friendly and welcoming and the director Emma is very helpful and always goes out of way to help with anything I need. The learning programs are great and my son has learnt and grown so much since starting. The healthy meals are a plus it has helped my son eat thing he never would at home. All in all I would really recommend the centre to anyone I know!”

“The teachers at Community Kids Bargo always take the time to talk to me about how my children’s day has been. They keep me up to date on all the things that are happening at the centre both verbally and through newsletters which are really handy. I find the staff extremely friendly and caring – all the children there seem to really enjoy themselves. Being so close to the freeway means that it also makes my trip to work much shorter. Thanks Community Kids!!”

- Lisa

 

“My son has attended Community Kids for the last 3 years and we have been very happy with the service provided. A fun learning environment conveniently located near the freeway, I would happily recommend this centre.”

“My son James has only been at Community Kids for a short time but during that time I have found the staff to be extremely helpful and have gone out of their way to make him feel very welcome. The care they offer is second to none. They offer nutricious hot meals and a variety of snacks throughout the day….James loves the food and has tried things that he never would try for me at home. I would highly recommend Community Kids to anyone who is looking for quality care for their kids.”
