Why Choose Curam?
We provide affordable, quality, long day care
for children aged 4 months to 5 years.
We have a spacious and interactive natural play environment,
(with a fabulous "farm play" area) which assists in promoting sustainability throughout the centre. We constantly program new and exciting opportunities for your child to explore, learn and care for their environment.
6.30am - 6.30pm Monday to Friday
are designed to encourage your child to ask questions and seek answers about the world around them. We support children's individuality and artistic expression is strongly encouraged.
Nurturing Educators assist children in forming meaningful social relationships with their peers and caregivers. Experienced staff are able to provide school transition reports, to your child's chosen school.
Vacation, before and after-school care
for children up to 13 years
(from local catchment schools)
are also available.
We believe that caring, attentive and professional Educators,
are the key to providing safe and exciting opportunities for children to learn whilst nurturing each individual child's developing skills.
We emphasise the importance of family
and acknowledge diversity within our community. Recognition of different cultures is considered when implementing programs and developing nutritious menus. Educators recognise the impact that a sense of "belonging" can have on a child and in turn, the community as a whole.
My name is Kylie, I have been working in Childcare for the past 24 years. I formally started when I was 16 years of age as an assistant at a local childcare service. I quickly proceeded to gain my qualifications in Early Childhood Studies. I was a Centre Manager for ten years prior to starting my own Family Day Care seven years ago. In addition, I acquired my Certificate IV in Training and Assessing, lectured in Childcare practice and worked as a trainer and assessor for Diploma and Cert III students.
My husband and I have 4 gorgeous children between us.
The amazing experiences that I have had caring for other peoples' children in both long day care and family day care settings over the years will stay with me forever.
I felt the need to pursue my biggest dream of one day starting my own Childcare Centre, with the emphasis being to "provide personable care to families", which I believe is essential when providing long day care for children.
I wanted to implement all of the knowledge that I have gained, whilst being a parent (with my youngest child in care) and also as an Educator with a drive to create a safe and excellent place of learning for local children.
It also means a lot to me to work alongside personable, passionate and professional staff whom parents feel that they can trust.
We aim to provide as many enriching experiences as possible for the children at Curam and look forward to meeting you soon.
From our family to yours,
