About Us

Kool Kids Early Learning Centre Miami

Welcome to Kool Kids Miami. We are conveniently located opposite Pizzey Park and near Miami State School.

Our childcare centre offers smaller class sizes, creating an environment that feels like an extension of the home.  We offer flexible hours of care and education for children from 15 months to six years and look forward to inspiring your child’s imaginations with our play-based learning programs.  

Our facilities include two beautiful, large outdoor play areas for your child to explore and discover. Whether we are making the ocean and its animals come to life in our interactive iSandbox, finding our rhythm during a music lesson, or learning about language and culture with our very own Japanese Program; every day is promised to be full of learning, laughter and fun here at Kool Kids Miami.

That’s why Kool Kids are happy kids!

The Kool Kids difference

Our approach is holistic, caring and fun! Our nurturing staff create an inclusive and stimulating environment for your child to play and learn.

We always search for innovative ways to develop important skills. Our interactive iSandbox, for example, is an exciting new technology that opens a world of possibilities where children discover music, texture and sound. This fantastic tool lets lava flow, oceans swirl, grass grow and bubbles blow!

We also provide:

  • Learning technology, such as interactive TVs and iPads, computers and SMART Interactive Whiteboard
  • Genki Japanese program with our own native Japanese teachers
  • Future Champs Sports Program on our own soccer field and tennis court
  • Dance and music lessons
  • Maximise your child care subsidy with 9 hour, 10 hour and full day sessions – find out more

We also love celebrating annual events and special occasions and look forward to welcoming you at one of our regular in-house festivities soon!

The Kool Kids educational focus

At Kool Kids we embrace the concept that children’s learning and play is interrelated. Our educational program follows what is laid out in the Government’s Early Years Learning Framework. It encourages children to explore concepts of literacy, numeracy and social engagement through their personal interests. 

Our Queensland Government Approved Kindergarten Program is taught by Bachelor-qualified teachers and focuses specifically on getting your child Big School Ready. Because we believe that changing routines and getting out in the community is an important part of early development, we also offer a range of pre-school excursions.

Peace of mind with the Kool Kids promise

We understand that your child starting at an early learning centre can be full of emotions for your family. We promise to deliver consistency, stability and a safe and inspirational learning environment. To ensure you are part of the journey, we send regular updates and photos of your child’s learning direct to your mobile via our Kindyhub app.

Our centre proudly offers a kindergarten/preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more your child will become ready for school.

Testimonials

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“I have been coming to Kool Kids at Miami with my little ones for over 5 years now and I still feel very appreciated that I found such a remarkable environment for my children to attend during the week whilst I am at work.

It is amazing the pleasure it is to drop them (now just the one) off in the morning and pick them up in the afternoon. You have such a wonderful mix of staff. They all really enjoy their day at work and my children just love them, even my eldest that has never been. When a staff member leaves (mainly due to pregnancy), the next one seems to fit right in and the atmosphere doesn’t even seem to be disturbed.

The main reason for my email is to express my sincere gratitude of ALL the staff within Kool Kids at Miami. They are friendly, respectful, informative, funny, caring, helpful, motivated, I could go on and on. I don’t think all the parents give credit where credit is due. After all, your staff are more valuable than they really think as they are taking care of our most valuable assets.

Thank you again for having such a wonderful team.”
