At Kindy Patch Reynella we believe in providing children with a safe and happy environment to discover and learn.
We are open from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm and provide care and education for children from birth to six years.
The centre boasts age appropriate resources and facilities including a beautiful, large, split floor nursery and newly established Kindy room.
We believe that the role of an Early Childhood Educator is to provide child-oriented programs that meet the needs of all children as individuals. Our School Readiness Program is supported by our Bachelor Qualified Teacher to ensure your child has all the knowledge and skills they need to start school.
Our in-house cook prepares wonderful, home cooked, nutritious meals daily including breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. Nappies are also provided for our family’s convenience.
At Kindy Patch Reynella each child’s health and wellbeing is of upmost importance to us. Each day we encourage our children to play and explore our huge outdoor play area! To build on children’s interests we offer regular incursions and excursions within the local community.
We are passionate about sustainability and are very excited about our new chicken coop to support embedding sustainable practices into the children’s daily practices as well as our lovely new veggie garden.
We welcome you to come and visit our beautiful centre and meet our passionate team.
I started working at Kindy Patch Reynella in 2015 and hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care.
I began my early childhood education and care career as a student on placement in 2015. From that placement, I gained a casual role before becoming a permanent educator in 2016. Once I finished my studies, I became a lead educator. I then moved into the assistant centre manager and educational leader role for 3 years before taking on the centre manager role in 2021.
Working with children brings many rewards. It is a chance to see children flourish in their development and become confident, independent lifelong learners. After having my son and spending time with children in foster care, I knew I wanted to play a bigger part in children’s ongoing development. I love being able to provide a safe and welcoming space for all children and their families. I get rewarded every day by seeing the children’s smiles and the excitement on their faces when they have learnt or achieved something new.
I have learnt that children are successful, competent and capable, and learn best when they have warm, engaged and responsive relationships with educators. They learn from the educators, the environment, and their peers. I believe every child is unique with different interests, backgrounds, and developmental stages. Therefore, I adapt my teaching style to enable each child to flourish.
I believe building a solid foundation of security and trust is the very first step to helping children on their journey. I am passionate about helping children and families find a sense of belonging or a home away from home where they all feel comfortable and safe to explore, investigate and develop lifelong skills.
There are many benefits to attending a dedicated early learning centre like ours. Our educators will not only provide a safe and supportive environment where children can ask questions, solve problems, imagine and grow, but also inspire a love of learning. We can give your child an opportunity to develop social skills, which helps them form healthy relationships with other people. Our Educators will encourage and help them learn how to get along with other children, share and take turns, listen to others, communicate their ideas and become independent.
At Kindy Patch Reynella, we pride ourselves on our wonderful team of qualified educators. We are committed to providing inclusive play-based learning environments for all ages, offering each child the opportunity to engage, explore, play, learn and grow. Our team is extremely passionate about creating a centre that is a home away from home for both families and children. It’s the sort of centre where everyone knows all of the children, no matter which room they are in. We are such a close-knit team; it feels like one big family.
I support families by being present and getting to know them. Communication is key when supporting the families here at Kindy Patch Reynella. We have an open-door policy, establishing open and honest conversations. From the moment children are enrolled, they and their families become part of our Kindy Patch Family and are supported throughout their journey.
