Bond Street Early Learning & Kinder

Child Care Centre Port Augusta

At Bond Street Early Learning and Kinder, our passionate educators will guide your child through our stimulating learning programs. Offering child care in Port Augusta that uses a child-centred curriculum, we offer holistic learning experiences that foster all domains of your child’s development. We understand the value of caring relationships between educators and families being the building blocks towards a successful learning journey. We can’t wait to welcome you to the Bond Street Early Learning and Kinder family!

At our centre, you will find:

  • Our Bachelor qualified Kinder Teacher is keen to not only get your child school-ready, but to work in partnership you to build a resilient and caring child who is ready to embrace the world.
  • Our onsite cook is making fresh and nutritious meals to fuel your child’s body and mind. We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late supper to support your child’s learning and play all day.
  • Our environments are purposefully designed to meet every child at their unique point of development. We understand not every child or family is the same, and our learning spaces reflect that. Like you, we wonder who they will be if we offer them the best start in life…
  • Our holistic curriculum is designed to achieve not only school readiness, but to nurture thoughtful, understanding and tolerant young citizens in a way that makes learning fun. Who knows what amazing ideas lie in these young minds?
  • When we say open-door policy, we mean it. We are here to support families in every way we can. Whenever you need to talk, we are here to listen.

Our funded, all day Kindergarten program is led by a Bachelor trained Early Childhood Teacher. We offer a stimulating curriculum with the aim of building confident and active learners. Using a holistic approach to education, we combine school readiness programs with learning experiences to foster the social and emotional development of young children. Our integrated indoor/outdoor curriculum is child-directed and seeks to engage children in meaningful learning experiences that get them excited about learning and confident to commence their formal education journey.

Meet our Director: Karen Baker

Diploma of Children's Services

Hi, I would like to warmly welcome you to Bond Street Early Learning & Kinder. My name is Karen and I am your Centre Director. I began my career in the childcare industry as an assistant in 2005; over the years I have worked as assistant, team leader, assistant director, and a coordinator of an OSHC (Outside of School Hours Care) service. Over these years I’ve gained valuable knowledge and experience that has allowed me to further my career as the Director of Bond Street Early Learning & Kinder.

We are a team of dedicated professionals who are committed to building trusting relationships with all our families and working in partnership with the local community to ensure high quality care for all children. I’m a strong believer that young children learn through play, by having fun, experimenting and exploring their world and taking calculated risks. At Bond Street, we will guide your child to become a confident and involved learner by providing a safe and stimulating environment that will help them grow as an individual. We have an open door policy and welcome families and the community to come in and spend time with your child transitioning into care. Please feel free to contact me or my team with any questions you may have.

I’m married and together we have two daughters. In my spare time I enjoy spending valuable time with family and friends.

I look forward to getting to know you and your family.
