Our team tailors play-based learning activities in line with national standards, specifically the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), helping prepare them for kindergarten and school readiness.

We also offer the following enriching learning experiences:

  • Sustainability Program: Helps children develop and understand the importance of embedding sustainable practices into everyday life. Children learn about recycling, conserving water, growing food and the importance of protecting our planet.

We often have visits from community services, and we go out on adventures to teach the children about their local environment. We have monthly family mornings where families are invited to the centre to share experiences, read a book and participate in craft with children.
  • Real life experiences: Children participate in fun and exciting experiences such as baking classes and caring for our garden.

Louisa

My career in early learning started in 1992. I joined the team at Pacific Pines in 2023. I hold a Diploma in Teaching.

Being a part of children’s growth and learning during their first 5 years is an incredibly rewarding experience. I am passionate about creating nurturing and stimulating environments where children can explore, learn, and thrive to their full extent.

In my career, I have learnt that children are unique individuals with strengths, interests, and learning styles. I adapt my teaching style to meet the diverse needs of each child, which helps foster a more inclusive and effective learning environment.

Our Pacific Pines child care centre provides a nurturing learning environment with fully trained educators who facilitate individualised learning experiences. Children benefit from age-appropriate activities, interactions with peers, and evidence-based curriculum frameworks that promote school readiness skills in an engaging manner.

We support families by maintaining open communication channels, utilising feedback for continuous improvement, fostering a welcoming atmosphere, and valuing parent input in decision-making processes. By staying connected, welcoming feedback, creating a positive environment, and incorporating parent perspectives, we build strong relationships that enhance the learning experience for children and promote a sense of collaboration and partnership between educators and families.

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. Kool Kids also offers the virtual tour option in all our centres. Click here to book a tour online.

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.

Kool Kids’ 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.

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.

Kool Kids 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, Kool Kids 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.
