Notes from our Parents
We can’t say ‘Thank you’ enough to Miss Lauren and the rest of the educators in the Possum room. We have seen such a big change in Summer over the past few months and its all thanks to the amazing job the Kindalin team does. When we moved Summer to Kindalin from her previous centre, we saw such an improvement with her in the first week. She was happy to be dropped off in the mornings, and she was bright and bubbly when we picked her up in the evenings, full of imagination and new experiences. We knew straight away that we made the right decision in moving her, and its definitely due to the love and attention she gets while at the centre.
Even the other day when we were called and told Summer had developed a fever, we didn’t feel panicked because we knew she was in good hands and well taken care of. Thanks again to Miss Lauren and the rest of the team in the Playful Possums Room.
I just wanted to stop and take an emotional minute to write and send the warmest of thanks to the beautiful team at Kindalin in Frenchs Forest. After 7+ years our time as part of the Kindalin family is coming to an end, with our youngest daughter Talia starting school in 2018.
The centre has provided such warmth to my daughters and the staff have been so nurturing and encouraging over the years, not to mention so much fun! My girls were always super excited to go to Kindalin each day and I had such peace of mind knowing they were happy and in a safe and caring environment whilst I was at work.
To Ashlee, Kelly and all the teachers – you have been such a huge part of our lives (our girls started at Kindalin prior to turning one!) and you have truly helped shape Talia and our now 8 year old daughter Chloe into the most wonderful little humans.
Thank you for all that you do! Thank you for the countless nappy changes and helping with toilet training, thank you for all the wonderful concert and events including Mother’s Day and Father’s Day concerts, the Christmas parties and the graduation ceremony before starting school, thank you for teaching them creative arts and all the messy painting we never like doing at home(!), thank you for encouraging imaginary play, thank you for sharing the importance and love of books, thank you for guiding them to become ready for the transition to big school!
Thank you for supporting myself and my husband with this amazing journey called parenthood!
Kindalin Frenchs Forest is part of our family and we will miss you all so much – THANK YOU!
I’m not sure where to begin. Kindalin can be considered a second family to us. As parents we expect only the best for our children and Kindalin as never disappointed. This centre has shaped our children in so many ways. Their care, attention to detail, experience, fun loving personalities and joy to work with little people is obvious each day when I drop the kids off. There are more times than I can count that our children would rather stay and play/learn a little longer. Kindalin will always hold a special place in our family and we can’t thank you enough for all what you do.
You guys will surely be missed 🙁
Kindalin Frenchs Forest has provided our two children with an exceptional level of care during the past eight years. The genuine warmth, love and interest in the children provided by the educators reflects the strong, positive culture of the Kindalin organisation. Our entire family, siblings, parents and grandparents, have felt welcome at Kindalin to join in special celebrations and milestones over the years, and have always been greeted and farewelled at the centre by happy smiles of all staff – regardless of which room they have attended.
The centre itself is always immaculately clean with a wide variety of activities, areas and resources all of a high quality. The wombats room is an amazing space that has been custom built to inspire endless hours of creative play and we are always regaled with happy stories at the end of every day by a very contented child. The centre is unique in that the outside play areas are all-weather so rainy days don’t have to be boring days.
Our eldest child was so well prepared for success at school thanks to the pre-school program and we are confident that our youngest will also transition easily thanks to Kindalin’s robust curriculum, which has provided countless opportunities for individual development and encouraged curiosity, creativity and a growth mindset – skills they will take with them and use for life.
Our girls have always felt special and recognised for their individual interests, and as we prepare to move to school it is with genuine sadness that we say goodbye. We can confidently recommend Kindalin to any parent (and have done so many times) as a wonderful place to see any child grow and learn.
