Community Kids Narrabri Early Education Centre

About Us

Welcome to Community Kids Narrabri!

Community Kids Narrabri offers a friendly and welcoming learning environment for young children to explore, play and grow.

We understand that every child is unique and has their own interests and passions. Keeping this in mind, the centre offers a range of activities for the children to enjoy throughout their day. We believe in the play-based system of learning, wherein a child’s learning experiences are more effective and enriching as a result of being in play environments. 

Our team of educators are passionate and committed to providing quality care to both children and their families. With a special parent communication app, families can keep in touch with educators and daily, while being regularly updated on their child’s progress. 

If you would like your child to be cared for in a warm, loving, homely environment, then do not hesitate to contact us.

We would love to book you in for a FREE tour where you can meet our friendly team. 


Centre Manager profile

Kelly Herden

How long have you been working in childcare?

I have been working in the industry for 15 years. I started my career as a Room Leader after completing my Diploma. I spent 12 months in this role before stepping up to become a Centre Manager.

What is your favourite part of working at the centre?

I love working with the families and the children. Being able to greet and farewell the children each day is such a highlight f my day. To see so many happy faces, and the occasional sad face, gives me the motivation to get through my day.

What qualifications do you hold?

I have my Diploma of Community Services (Children Services) which I completed at Armidale TAFE in 2002. I also hold my Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood) which I completed by correspondence in 2007.

What are you most proud of at your centre?

I am so proud of the community connections that we have built here at the centre and the sense of family we have with all of our families. It is so beautiful to see the relationships that our families have been able to build with the Educators over the years and this makes me very happy and fulfilled to see.

What inspired you to become an Educator?

I have always had a love for children growing up. I did a lot of babysitting and I was always the person entertaining the children at any get together we went to. I always believed deep down that I would work with children one day.

What makes your team/centre special?

My team all have a very friendly and warm approach to the children in our care. The easy going relationships that we build with our families really reflect the small rural community that we live in. We are very community minded and expose the children in our care to our local community through regular excursion and outings. We spend the time meeting our community and being present in it. We also support our community through fundraisers that are meaningful to the families in our care.
