Our spacious and age-appropriate environments 

Our Reynella child care centre is designed to be a home away from home that encourages every child’s exploration. Our spacious and age-appropriate early learning environments have been carefully designed to immerse your child into a world of exploration, curiosity, and learning.

Each of our large and and well-maintained outdoor environments includes a veggie patch and sandpit and ample play equipment for children to safely develop their strength, balance, and self-confidence through play.

Our dedicated and passionate team

Our team of passionate educators make up the heart of the child care centre. Our experienced educators are passionate about helping every child succeed in discovering their identity and become confident, happy and resilient learners.

We have great long term staff retention with many experienced educators each adding their own skills to the team. We have a well-balanced team with long-term educators ranging from 5 years of service to 20 years of service, ensuring consistency for your child.

Our Educational Leader has been working with Inclusion specialist organization Gowrie to learn inclusive techniques. This collaboration provided access to a speech pathology project, teaching our education team many ways to promote speech and communication. 

Healthy and delicious meals prepared on site

Our Reynella child care centre provides children with nutrient-rich, unprocessed, and seasonal foods created to please even the fussiest of eaters. For variety, our menu rotates every four weeks, with our cook catering to the unique dietary requirements of every child. We accommodate and plan for anaphylaxis, allergies and dietary preferences. We are an allergy aware centre.

Here at Kindy Patch Reynella, we believe that by encouraging active participation in food preparation (such as growing & harvesting the fruit and vegetables, preparing, and helping cook the meal) – children learn to appreciate and understand the importance of healthy eating.

We look forward to partnering with you and your family to provide information, support, and high-quality early education and care in your child’s formative years. Book a centre tour online, or contact our Family Support Team by calling 1800 517 052 to start your journey with us today. 

Play is essential to every child’s learning and development. It enables children to make decisions, learn, take risks, and have fun. Our experienced team plan play-based learning activities in line with national standards. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is designed to engage in your child’s interests and allow them to experience each day in a new way, supporting their learning in the lead-up to primary school.  

Our Early Learning Curriculum also provides children with: 

  • Real Life experiences: Children participate in fun and exciting experiences such as harvesting the veggie garden, caring for our worm farm and basic cooking skills. 
  • Sustainability Program: Each age group participates in a sustainability project that help children embed sustainable practices into everyday life. Our sustainability champion seeks out learning opportunities to enrich the learning for the children such as classes in bush tucker. She has established a bush tucker garden and enjoys teaching the children about all the edible produce we grow and the importance of it to our first nations people.
  • Music and movement programs: Our music and movement program have been designed to help develop fundamental skills that help support children’s self-regulation, memory, and concentration. 
  • Community engagement activities: We often have visits from local community librarians, local police, and other community services in Reynella to help familiarise the children with their local community. We take the children on regular community walks around the local area and to Robertson Street Reserve to assist our Kindergarten children with their transition to the “big school”.

Skye Davie

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.

Rooms

At our Reynella child care centre, we believe in the rights of the child and view transitions as a pivotal learning opportunity. Each child deserves to be treated as an individual and supported to be a part of the transition process between the rooms.

While we have age brackets these are a guide, and we provide flexibility along with communication to best support each child as they develop and move throughout the centre.

Nursery Room (0 – 16 months)

Our nursery Educators have created a welcoming and nurturing environment where each child feels safe to explore and discover new things – through their senses, their communication, cues (body language, facial expression, and sounds) and by experimenting.

On any given day you can see the nursery children engaging in all types of meaningful play, such as water play, music time, story time and more. 

Toddler Room (16 months – 2.5 years)

Our Educators encourage the toddler children to learn through play to help enhance their sensory-motor development. This learning happens through carefully planned music, dance, games and reading experiences. On any given day the children can be seen developing their numeracy by building a tower, sorting objects, pointing and identifying shapes and patterns and participating in counting songs and games. 

Pre-Kindy Room (2.5 years – 3.5 years) 

Children in our Pre-Kindy room are encouraged to participate in group play. Group play is important, as it helps develop important social skills such as, turn taking, developing self-confidence and emotional self-regulation. Our team helps children through talking, planning and role modelling.

Kindy Room: (3.5 years – 6 years)

Kindergarten is a unique time for learning with peers and developing skills for later learning. Our play-based Kindergarten program encourages active engagement in learning and supports a range of positive developmental outcomes including resilience, independence, critical thinking, and creativity.

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.
