Notes from our Parents
Tommy has been attending Kindalin since he was 6.5 months and for the last two months has been in the Emu’s Room. During this time he has developed a strong bond with Miss Malissa. I have been extremely impressed with Malissa’s professionalism, care and willingness to work collaboratively with both Luke and I. Malissa has encouraged Tommy to develop his independence and self agency whilst also helping him to learn to interact positively, through care and respect with his peers and educators.
Malissa has continued to engage Tommy with his learning by creating inquiry based play opportunities focussed on his individual interests. Tommy loves attending Kindalin, in fact, it can be hard to get him to leave in the afternoon. This reassures me that we have chosen the best Early Learning Centre for our boys. In addition to Malissa, the whole team at Glenhaven have been amazing for both Matty and Tommy. I often find myself recommending Kindalin to my friends, colleagues and family, a number of whom have now enrolled their children.
Finally, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your strong leadership in 2017. There has been a number of fantastic improvements and developments this year at Glenhaven and no doubt, this has been a result of your influence and foresight. I have also appreciated your efficiency, experience and willingness to collaborate with families.
I can rest assured knowing that when we go to work our boys are in a happy and nurturing environment.
Thank you again.
I saw Ian speak last night at Kellyville Ridge and it was fantastic. I’d love to attend the seminar again.
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!
