What message would you like to tell parents considering your centre?
Since the commencement of my teaching Career in 2007 I have had the pleasure of sharing knowledge through teaching children from 6 weeks old to 6 years old and becoming a friend to many families. I have seen the early childhood sector evolve from providing child care to the now greater expectation of providing quality education and care. The role that parents play in their child’s education is paramount to their learning; I encourage parent participation in all aspects of our curriculum as they are witnessing their child’s growth and development and are able to provide current guidance to educators. As each child and family is from vastly different backgrounds this aids understanding diversity and developing respect. Community Kids Leumeah has been my home since 2007, together let’s make it yours, so come by one day and say hello.

Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centre:
“I recently read the book ‘Wonder’ and really loved the message ”Choose Kind”. This is something I definitely want my boys to live by naturally. I also see this at your Centre! Kindness… it’s always there, I’ve never seen any team member grumpy, or agitated or upset… I could never tell if they’ve had or are having a bad day. They are just always smiling and always KIND. I think in this date and age, most people forget to smile and be kind. A kind gesture (whatever it may be, even if it’s providing a “to-go brekky”) can surely make someone’s day. Keep up the good work.”
“I would like to say thank you for all you have done with Emma, we wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for you all. She has made such massive progress from not talking, to non stop talking! You have all made such a big impact on Emma and myself and I will never forget it. We are so grateful and blessed to have enrolled Emma at Community Kids when we first moved here, you have have all been so kind and amazing.”
“I want to convey my thanks… so very impressed with the way you all handle every situation, in particular Mel, Steph and yourself. You were all calm, quick and efficient and I was just blown away with how you all dealt with it and the other kids at the same time. As a parent, it’s so reassuring to see this, I can’t sing your praises enough to my friends and I always recommended your centre to so many people… and a big thanks to all of you for being so amazing”
“This centre is so professional and approachable. Good hygiene and a great menu for the kids. Hands on learning where they encourage your child’s interests. Lots of fun activities within their curriculum and also various activities organised to introduce the kids to all sorts of fun such as soccer, dancing, Henny Penny, etc. Also have an Active Board and computers to introduce the kids to technology. Highly recommended! My child loves this centre and all his educators.”
