Our experienced and friendly educators work to create inclusive and exciting learning experiences for your child. Every year begins with goal setting for each room, and each child within the centre.
Educators observe each child and create individual goals based on learning needs, developmental stages, interests and strengths. Importantly, we like to include you in the goal setting for your child by finding out what you’d like to see them achieve over the next six months.

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? Working in the early years sector, is my dream job. As a dedicated educator, I am most passionate about providing an environment that is safe, secure, purposeful and engaging for the children. Being the Centre Manager for Aussie Kindies Frankston and seeing the children become active, curious and confident explorers through their learning brings so much happiness, to know that my team and I are supporting the children in their development through a love of learning.
As Centre manager, my aim is to support, guide and collaborate with my team to provide a nurturing environment for the children, so they can thrive through warm, affectionate and consistent relationships that are based on trust, respect and understanding.
What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? Being in the industry for so long, I have many memorable moments. My favorite moment would have to be my first Kindergarten class, it was their graduation day. Sharing this moment with the children and their families was such a great feeling. We laughed, cried and celebrated the children’s success together. I remember looking at my little graduates with such pride and happiness knowing that this group of children were ready for their next stage of life and I helped to support them to get there. It was a very proud and emotional moment, one that I will never forget!
Why do you believe your Centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Children construct meaning from their everyday experiences, and require a safe, nurturing environment in which to flourish. Aussie Kindies Frankston consists of three educational rooms with two large natural, secure, shaded playgrounds suitable to all age groups and developmental needs. Your children will feel like they are at a park, every day of the week!
We have a wonderful team of educators, many of whom have been with the Centre for several years. We offer a Government-funded kindergarten program which is run by our qualified Early Childhood Teacher and incorporated into our long day care hours.
Here at Aussie Kindies Frankston, we implement a fun and educational learning program in every room which meets the individual needs of each child according to the Early Years Learning Framework. Our aim is to build strong partnerships between our children, families, community, and educators, as well as creating a safe, secure and healthy environment.
We host a variety of events throughout the year which we welcome parents and families to attend, including themed events, ‘special friends’ days and exciting incursions.
Our Centre hours aim to meet the flexible needs of children and their families, offering care all year round except public holidays and weekends between the hours of 6.30am to 6.30pm.
