Child Care Centre Maitland

At Ken Tubman Drive Early Learning & Kinder, we offer child care in Maitland with a rich and engaging educational curriculum highlighted by active community engagement. Our dedicated and knowledgeable educators strive to build positive partnerships with families and the wider community to support the learning and development of every child. Our modern centre features natural outdoor play spaces and high quality resources that will stimulate your child’s sense of curiousity and wonder. We understand every child is unique, and we are passionate about meeting each child exactly where they are ‘at’, so we can work together to achieve their best. Come by and say hi at Ken Tubman Drive Early Learning & Kinder.

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 preschool programs are 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: Karina Niblock

My name is Karina, I am the director of the Ken Tubman Drive Early Learning Centre & Kinder.

I am passionate about providing quality care and education to children and families. I encourage children to learn through play providing uninterrupted time to explore. I believe a quality service is created when educators, children and families all work in partnership.

I hold my bachelor of teaching and have been working in the Early Childhood sector for the past 15 years in many quality services.
Over the years I have worked across all ages in the rooms before moving up to the nominates supervisor position.
I am a mother to a 3 year old which I feel has helped me to bring a parent perspective into my role.

My team and I are looking forward to meeting you.
