Meet the Centre Manager

Alyce Jones

Medowi Childcare Centre Manager - Kindy Patch

My early child care journey began in 2011, and I have loved every minute of it. I started as the centre manager at Kindy Patch Medowie in 2021, but I was impressed by this amazing team since 2018 when my daughter attended the centre. I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services.

I have always been passionate about working in early education, where no two days are ever the same. Children are extremely capable learners. I enjoy watching and supporting every child while they grow and develop in my centre. My team and I are here to make sure that their learning environment is safe and always inspiring.

The most important part of my role is to get to know all the children in my care, to build trusting relationships with the families, and to provide support wherever needed.

“I’m really happy with Kindy Patch Medowie for my little guy. The educators are amazing, the learning is tailored to the children, the food is amazing and healthy and they genuinely care about the children’s wellbeing.”

“The staff at Kindy Patch are absolutely fantastic. The kids are happy with lots of activities and engagement with the educators and the menu is great with lots of wholesome delicious food on offer throughout the day. Highly recommended!”

“Having a child with additional needs, I found that the transition to school would not have gone so smoothly if it was not for the access he had to such a solid Early Education program to prepare him for school. The basic tasks such holding a pencil, unwrapping his lunch to the more important areas such as basic numeracy and letter recognition which I would not been able to prepare as a fulltime working mother.  I am a firm believer of pre- school learning and feel it is a vital step for all children and believe my son would not have thrive without it. The staff at Kindy Patch ensured a wonderful transition to Kindergarten for my son.

“Both of my girls been attending Kindy Patch Medowie since around 10months of age. Having a teaching background I do have huge expectations regarding their care and believe that Education is one of the most important factors that is going to influence their future in this ever changing world.

I believe their motivation towards learning and being successful in learning is developed right from the onset. If a child constantly fails they will simply give up and develop a negative attitude, not only of learning but also themselves.

Kindy Patch Medowie has been nothing but supportive and nurturing towards developing both Ebony and Evelyn as individuals. The dedicated educators and careers in the centre go above and beyond to continue our beliefs as parents regarding learning and instilling a sense of right and wrong, sharing, positive communication strategies, healthy practises and learning about the world.

Ebony amazes me each day with what she learns at Kindy Patch. From ‘getting down low and go go going’ if there is a fire, to ‘Stranger Danger’ and Snow Leopards. I often pick her up at the end of the day and she is engrossed in a learning activity at the SMART board.

I have every faith that she will be fully prepared in order to be successful at big school next year. As an affectionate little person she is very excited but has already expressed she will miss the friendly faces and she has had caring for her since starting as at the centre as little bubba. A definite sign of a great child care center and preschool provider.”

“Both of our children attend Kindy Patch Medowie and have done since 6 months old with our eldest being 4 and 1/2. I couldn’t be happier with the care they receive. The Staff at Kindy Patch are amazing and have helped develop who my children are today.

The programs provide help to promote children’s development and learning and are second to none.

We are extremely pleased with the curriculum, activities, themed days and variety for the kids as well as communication with the parents which is excellent. The centre provides a warm and friendly environment for the children. The staff show care and compassion for all children and it’s almost like being able to send our children to their other family. Highly recommend Kindy Patch”

I have had all 3 of my children attend Medowie’s Kindy Patch and am thoroughly content with my choice. The staff are genuine in the provision of their care and truly interested in each child’s development. The centre’s school readiness program has been fantastic in preparation for commencement at “big school” and I know my children are blessed to have received such wonderful education and attention. The centre provides nutritious meals, fantastic play facilities, hands on learning experiences, lots of fun times (!) and has implemented a highly important sun safe policy.The centre provides continual feedback, regular reports, and a yearly portfolio for each child with artwork, photos and stories of the child’s interactions and development from throughout the year – it is something we look forward to receiving each year and a pleasure to read. My middle child is off to school next year and it will be sad to see her leave Kindy Patch as I know how much it has benefited her and how many lovely friendships she has made. I highly recommend Kindy Patch Medowie.”

My child has some special needs, and the team at Kindy Patch show us nothing but compassion and professionalism as well as reassurance. The team are always welcoming and helpful on every arrival and departure, the grounds are fantastic, facilities are clean and I always feel that my child is in good hands. I can not recommend the Kindy Patch team enough. Thank you for all you do for our family.”

– Belinda

 

Great Centre, modern, clean and well equipped. Staff are highly qualified and really bond well with the children. Often there are events that happen (i.e photos, farm visits, magician etc) that the kids love. Everything’s done by the book and the policies are excellent. Easy payment options and the availability of half fees whilst away is a good benefit. Highly recommended.”

– Peter
