The passionate and highly skilled team at Kinder Cottage are chosen because of their qualifications, enthusiasm for teaching children, supportive and caring natures. We take pride in acknowledging many of our team members have been with Kinder Cottage for up to twenty years. This extensive experience instils high quality practice and a natural ability to guide the children’s learning through play environments.
The stability of our Educator team means that we can provide a stable environment for your children whilst attending Kinder Cottage. This enables us to:
• Ensure consistent educational and behavioural cues
• lncrease the chance of picking up developmental issues earlier
• Most importantly makes the children feel more secure and comfortable with meaningful relationships.
The variety of ages, and cultural backgrounds in our team of Educators is helpful in allowing us to all view things from different perspectives and is also helpful to our children and families to have somebody that they can relate to. But mostly we all love what we do and that comes through in how we care for your children.
Each Room’s Lead Educator holds a Diploma in Children’s Services. And our Kindergarten Teacher in the Kangaroos room has a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Teaching)
All Assistant Educators have a Certificate III Children’s Services or are working towards this through a traineeship, and some of our assistants are even Diploma qualified.

ln addition, Professional Development is an ongoing commitment at Kinder Cottage with all our staff participating in regular industry, educational and safety training on a regular basis.
