Suman Makhija

I have been working in childcare for over 23 years, and the best part about my job here at Kindy Patch is spending time with the children and watching them enjoy and learn in the environment provided in our care. It makes me so happy to see them smile. I hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Services and a Certificate in Training and Assessing – therefore I am always up to date with the standards expected to be received in childcare. I am most passionate about providing a peaceful and interactive environment so children can flourish into happy and healthy individuals. I strive to reach goals that are attainable and beneficial for everybody. Therefore I’m passionate about providing the best service this centre has to offer.

I am most proud of the positive feedback we receive from all of the parents, children, staff and management. I take pride in the teamwork we all put in to keep the centres environment always cheerful. What inspired me to become an early childhood educator was my upbringing and respect I have for my educators whilst growing up. This is what has contributed to where I stand today. It is the educators of today that will mould the next generation of role models.

What makes Kindy Patch Mordialloc so special is its teamwork and relationships built on mutual understanding and trust. Not only the staff, but parents are contributing to the discussions and regular meetings/events held here at Kindy Patch Mordialloc. Communication is key between educators, parents and the community to provide the best care possible.

At Kindy Patch Mordialloc, we endeavour to create a “home-like” atmosphere. We recognise the importance of creating a link between home and the Centre, where both parents and educators work in partnership to develop the child as a whole in a mutually supportive, safe and caring environment.

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.

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.
