Mystique Mercer

Hello, my name is Mystique and I am the Centre Manager here at Kindy Patch Grovely Early Education Centre.

I started working in early childhood education and care in 2012 and started at Kindy Patch Grovely in May of 2014. I started off as a Centre Float and since then have moved through all the roles from an Assistant, Lead Educator, Assistant Centre Manager and now Centre Manager.

I have always loved children. The best part of the job to me is making the connections with the children and families, some families we have around for years at our centre as their children grow and learn and it’s amazing the bonds you create and memories you make to last a lifetime.

Children are wonderful beings and have so much potential. I have learnt that children are honest and pure and have so much passion and wonder in this world. It has always been my philosophy to keep their passion and wonder alive, providing opportunities for children to learn and encouraging them to try.

Whether your child is starting school next year or in a few years’ time, consider giving them an early start to child care by sending them to an Early Education and Care Centre that provides high-quality early education in a fun, caring and supportive environment.

Our dedicated team of educators are experienced and understand the importance of extending on children’s home-life experiences. Individual programs are developed for each child to assist with and build upon their learning, understanding, communication, self-esteem, and confidence. The team work together to create an inclusive, educational environment that feels like a home away from home for the children in their care.

Choosing an early learning centre is one of the most important and difficult decisions that a parent has to make. At Kindy Patch Grovely, we have open communication at our centre starting from daily posts on our parent app to an email every Friday about our week and upcoming events. From the very first tour to the enrolment paperwork, we are here to help to guide and support you through this difficult transition.

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.

Most of our Kindy Patch care and early education centres offer the following:

  • Nappies and wipes
  • Sunscreen and hats
  • Nutritious meals prepared by our in-house cook

Some centres also provide sheets and formula, so you may not need to remember to pack them.

For nursery children, be sure to bring: nappy rash cream, dummies, bottles and teats, comfort toys or blankets, three spare outfits, spare socks and a plastic bag for wet clothes.

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.

Plus anything else your individual child may need, such as breast milk, a sleeping bag, a comforter or medication.

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.
