Kerry Street Early Learning & Kinder

Child Care Centre Christies Beach

Kerry Street Early Learning and Kinder offers child care in Christies Beach with a meaningful and engaging educational curriculum that captures the diverse needs and interests of the children in our care. Our team of professional and passionate educators strive to create warm and welcoming atmosphere that supports the learning and development of all children. We aim to provide a stimulating environment with natural outdoor spaces with room for active learning and quiet nooks for relaxation. Come by and say hi at Kerry Street Early Learning and 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 funded 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: Lauren Rennie

Welcome to Kerry Street Early Learning & Kinder. My name is Lauren Rennie and I am your Director of Early Learning 

I started my career at Kerry Street Early Learning and Kinder in 2009 and have had the opportunity to experience various roles within the sector. My first experience was as a service cook and as I have built my training, knowledge and experiences, it has led me to support services as an Educator, Team Leader, Curriculum Leader, Assistant Director and Service Manager.  

During my time in Early Education and Care, I have grown a strong and valued passion for continuous improvement and growth. Every day, every experience is a chance to grow and become the best we can be for our community, families, children and our teams.  

I believe children are valued individuals who are capable and competent learners and who lead their own learning. A child’s voice creates a real involvement and with our guidance, support and community approach, together we can achieve high quality early education. I believe in supporting our family’s needs and creating a safe and secure environment.  

My main role in life is as a Mother to a wonderful little boy. This has guided me in understanding how important it is to belong within our world confidently and inclusive to all.  

I look forward to welcoming you and your family into our service, building relationships and watching your child grow throughout their learning journey at Kerry Street.
