Kindy Patch Camden Child Care Centre ManagerI have worked in childcare centres for over a decade. I am passionate about working with children and driving my team to be a better early education provider.

At Kindy Patch Camden, we believe solid relationships between educators, children and families are a powerful foundation for belonging and learning. To help foster positive relationships, educators create an environment that is warm, safe and welcoming for children and families to form a sense of community within the service.

We welcome and value each family’s voice and contribution. Families are invited to be active participators within all areas of the service, because this partnership is important for building trust, respect and collaboration for a healthy and active learning environment.

Children are encouraged to follow their path of discovery by learning through hands on, real and relevant play-based experiences. We believe that children have a natural sense of curiosity and are active contributors to their own learning. We provide learning experiences based on the children’s voices, interests, individual needs as well as incorporating intentional teaching and spontaneous experiences.

Our team at Kindy Patch Camden love the joy that being an early childhood educator brings. We love working with children and being able to watch our children grow.

We hope to see you soon.

Frequently Asked Questions

A centre tour is a convenient way to experience the centre of your choice and meet with our qualified educators at a time suitable to your family schedule. Kindy Patch also offers the virtual tour option in all our centres. Click here to book a tour online.

On the day of the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to observe practices and interactions within the centre environment. You’ll be able to see all the rooms and playgrounds, ask the team members any questions you have in mind, and get all the information you need to make the best decision for your child.

Kindy Patch’s Family Support team will add your child’s name to our waitlist if one of our centres is currently full in your child’s age group. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available.

We also do monthly check-ins to review the availability, and you will receive a text message confirming if you’re still happy to remain on the waitlist each month. If you would like to get an update at any point, you’re welcome to reach out on our Web Chat or give us a call.

Our Family Support team can also help you find more G8 early learning centres near you, with the same offerings at the Kindy Patch centre you are interested in that have immediate availability.

It’s common for a child to experience separation anxiety when they first start child care. When you’re getting ready to start child care, you can help your child overcome anxieties by visiting the child care centre together for a Stay and Play session, and easing into new routines at home.

For toddlers and preschool or kindergarten-aged children, it’s best to bring: spare underwear, water bottle or sippy cup, sun hat, closed-toe shoes, two spare outfits, spare socks and a plastic bag for wet clothes.

It’s best to speak to your centre of choice for a full list of everything included.

Kindy Patch uses Xplor Home as our family communication app. It is the best and easiest way to keep track of your child’s day. After you enrol your child with the centre, you can utilise Xplor Home to book child care days, manage your account, receive the photographs that capture your child’s learning, learn about your child’s progress, as well as keep up-to-date with upcoming centre events and important information.

If your child shows signs of an infectious illness when they arrive at the centre or becomes sick during the day, you may be notified that you need to make alternative arrangements or pick up your child from the centre, and keep them home until they are no longer infectious. While we understand that this can be inconvenient, Kindy Patch is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.

Under the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), families are allowed 42 absence days per child, per financial year. These can be taken for any reason, including public holidays and when children are sick, without the need for families to provide documentation.
