Kelly Mace

Centre Manager - Community Kids Broadbeach Waters

"Every day we endeavour to create fun and engaging activities to ensure each child is supported through their play. "

I began my career in early childhood education and care in 2000 and started working at Community Kids Broadbeach Waters in November 2020. I hold a Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood) and have continually upskilled my qualifications ever since. 

I enjoy working with children and believe they are central to everything we do. I find working with young children so rewarding. I relish the opportunity to build strong connections with children and enhance their learning and development.  

As an early childhood educator, I have learned that children learn best through play in a supportive and inviting environment.  Positive relationships with educators and peers are vital to enabling lifelong learning.  

I am passionate about helping children in their learning and life journey.  I build a strong and positive relationship with each child and their family and our learning program is based on their interests. It extends on their abilities, so they are confident and involved in their learning journey. 

All childcare centres, including our centre, use the foundation of play-based learning to guide our experiences every day. The early years are the most formative years. They are so important in building the necessary skills and pathways to successful lifelong learning. Learning across all domains of development creates a strong foundation for children to continue to grow, flourish and develop. 

Our team understands just how important your children are to you, and we ensure we take our responsibilities seriously. Community Kids Broadbeach Waters has extensive policy and procedures in place to assist our team in protecting children in our care. As a mum of two, I understand it can be difficult to be away from your child. However, we take pride in creating a caring and supportive environment where families feel comfortable leaving their children with us knowing that we would take great care of them. 

I am proud to be working with a dedicated and nurturing team. We strive to create a learning environment that feels warm and welcoming. Every day we endeavour to create fun and engaging activities to ensure each child is supported through their play. Here at Community Kids Broadbeach Waters, we have a long-serving and diverse team of Qualified Educators. They value the input of all families and recognise the potential of all children. They value each other, recognising that we each bring our own strengths and weaknesses to the table. We work as a team to bring the best learning experience to the children. 

I build a positive relationship with our families right from the beginning. I understand families concerns and expectations and endeavour to meet their individual needs. I always ensure we have open communication and assist them as needed and guide them through the whole enrolment and orientation process. We welcome families to spend time with us at the centre and see how we can facilitate their child’s learning. We create a loving environment where families will feel comfortable,  and we ensure the highest quality of care for the children at our service. We encourage families to be involved in their child’s learning and pride ourselves in open communication and customer satisfaction. 

We have a parent refreshment area in the foyer for families to take snacks and drinks away with them. We also celebrate across our Centre Community key events such as Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparents Day and our Leaving Ceremony before moving on to big school. 

We understand that starting at a new centre can be overwhelming. From the first inquiry, we make sure that we address all your questions one by one. We walk families through all the forms and administration that need to be done. This includes enrolment forms, Child Care Subsidy (CCS), explaining subsidies, government caps, centre schedules, our centre menu and more.
