Stephanie Gosden

My career in early learning started in 2013. I joined the team at Kindy Patch Salisbury Heights in 2023. I have a Cert 3 in Children services, a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care, an Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management, and I am currently studying towards Bachelor of Early Childhood Education and Care.

What I particularly love about working in the Early childhood sector is building trusting relationships not only with the children in our care but our families and local community. Through relationships we can create positive outcomes for children, and provide an environment that is safe, nurturing, and responsive to the children. I have always had a connection to the Early Years and my passion has always been driven through connections with people and the love for creating invitations to play.

My teaching style is guided through being in the moment and challenging children’s ideas and thinking, connecting with our world by direct contact with nature. Through nurture, respect, and relationships we can create a safe environment that allows children to build on their confidence and strive for positive outcomes of learning. In my role, I love catering to children’s individual needs and helping our team to upskill to ensure an inclusive environment for all families.

We have a respectful team of inspiring and passionate educators. They are nurturing, experienced and they seek to make a positive difference for each child in our care. We also hold centre events to invite families to be a part of community and support families wherever we can.

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.
