Here at Kidz Retreat we provide long daycare for 57 children aged between 3 months to 6 years, with four separate rooms and a dining room that children from both the Pre-Kinder room and Kindergarten room use for all meal times. This leaves the rooms for children’s play and education. We offer a 3 year-old and 4 year-old Kindergarten program which is professionally ran by 2 Early Childhood Teachers. Our framework is play based and is centered around the individual interests of the children. We also incorporate a range of incursions into our programs on a regular basis.
As a family owned and operated Childcare Centre, we are committed to ensuring our Centre is well maintained at all times and focus on supporting our staff. Our staff are carefully selected for their ability to nurture and inspire children and are rewarded for their high standard of care. We have a strong focus on professional development and ensuring a collaborative environment for staff.
Our standards are set very high at Kidz Retreat; Educators must be 19 years plus and all employees must undertake first aid, anaphylaxis and asthma training. Employees also agree at employment to undergo random drug and alcohol testing. We have an additional educator who holds her Advanced Diploma in Children Services and Care who assists the rooms during busier times and supports and mentors our Educators throughout the week. We offer above award remuneration, generous leave loading and additional financial rewards for long-term staff.
