Kids & Co Pre School is a standalone and boutique Early Childhood Education and Care service. We believe providing the highest standard of early childhood teachers and early childhood educators ensures the highest standard of education and care for children.
Families feel at ease knowing support will be reliably sourced, and professionally practiced. Positive partnerships with families, in collaboration and guidance, gives children a better chance at developing confidence, feel happy and master learning skills to transition smoothly to school.
Kids & Co Pre School is licensed for twenty five children (25) each day and children can attend until they are ready to start school. Within our capacity of twenty five children, we can cater for five children aged two to three years. Our door opens at 8am, and closes at 5pm, forty eight weeks each year, and the service is approved with the Federal Government's national early childhood rebate system: Child Care Package. This way rebates are provided directly to families according to their eligibility and assessment.
Every child attending Kids & Co Pre School participates in our Pre School program throughout the day, and lead by two NESA accredited early childhood teachers. An assurance to families the daily program will be intentionally planned from children's interests, play interactions and parent input.
