Community Kids Golden Square Early Education Centre

About Us

Welcome to Community Kids Golden Square!

Here at Community Kids Golden Square, our Educators are passionate about providing young children with stimulating learning opportunities. Our facility is equipped with a wide selection of age appropriate resources, toys and learning materials that promote early growth. 

We believe in the importance of providing our staff with lots of support and development opportunities, to ensure we are giving the best possible start for all children in our care.

For the convinience of the children and families, we provide nappies and nutritious meals throughout the day. We also offer a government-approved Kindergarten Program lead by Bachelor-qualified teachers.

Centre Manager profile

Jakki Winbanks

How long have you been working in childcare?

11 years, starting as an assistant, room leader, 2IC then Centre Manager of 3 centres.

What is your favourite part of working at the centre?

I really enjoy welcoming families into the centre every morning and seeing how excited the children are to come in each day.

What qualifications do you hold?

Diploma of Childrens Services. Cert 4 Training and Assessment.

What are you most passionate about?

I am very passionate and committed to the care we provide for each and every child, each and every day. As families entrust us to care for their children when they cannot be there themselves, we provide the love and care that they provide when they were there.

What is your favourite inspirational quote?

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning.

What values are most important to you in your team members?

What I value most in our team is honesty, openness and dedication. To always see that dedication in positive and meaningful interactions throughout the day with all children at our centre.

Any further to add?

Our centre is small and homelike with a capacity for the attendance of 63 children per day. Unlike all those big centres where you feel lost when you walk in the door and overwhelmed with the sheer size of the centre, we are small and intimate and very welcoming. At Community Kids Golden Square all of our educators really get to know every child, their needs and their families. From the minute you walk in the door you will feel right at home within our little community. Whether your child starts in our comfortable 8 place nursery, or move through the centre to a fully funded Kindergarten program which includes “Bush Kinder” attended twice a week on our very own centre bus, your child and family will feel right at home. Come and join us and see for yourself just how much our centre is your home away from home.
