Situated in a tranquil environment visitors to this centre instantly notice its' peaceful atmosphere, inside and outside of the centre.

Bordered by rural acreage and leafy surrounds, Kindalin Glenhaven is set in a tranquil environment with views to the west stretching as far as the Blue Mountains. Inside the airy centre is a hive of activity, with three separate areas catering to our three age groups. Art and projects line the walls, while children buzz around, happily immersed in their investigations.

The highlight of our Glenhaven Centre is the spectacular top yard. Dotted with exotic trees, seats and tables and a sandpit. It’s a natural setting that invites play, imagination and learning. There’s a large outdoor area for the younger age group too. Cool and spacious, it’s covered by a large all-weather sail.

“Every day we make meaningful & lasting contributions to the children in our care.”

Notes from Glenhaven parents

As AF‘s final year approaches the end I have had some time to reflect on our experience at the centre. I cannot commend the team highly enough. From the very beginning I felt supported in my role as a nervous first time Mum. I was allowed to progress forward with AF at a pace that was comfortable for me. I always received individual feedback about my child and how his day went.

AF‘s special needs were identified early on and with support and guidance from AF‘s teachers and other professionals I have seen how much of a positive difference early intervention can make. I am absolutely amazed at how this years Wombats team have helped my child to grow and overcome his difficulties. We now feel ready to take on the next challenge of school!

I have also noticed the remarkable warmth and affection thatAF‘s teachers have for him, and all the children in his group. There is a deep and genuine bond of love and trust between children and educators, and this in turn has led me to develop a great attachment to the team too! I never have to worry that my child is not being heard, or his needs are not being met.

AF and all his family will miss all of his educators. We are lucky to have had such fantastic people in our lives at such a crucial time.


James and Thomas started at Kindalin at the beginning of the year, and I just want to let you know how pleased we are with our choice of childcare! We are so impressed with Kindalin Glenhaven!! James has been going to daycare since he was 9 months old, as did our older children Charlotte and Oliver,and we have always been happy with their daycare centre. We could not fault it, but similarly towards the end we did not rave about it. It was only when you suggested we looked around Kindalin just for a comparison that we realised what we had been missing out on! We love… that we have felt welcome from the first day we walked into Kindalin that the staff at Kindalin are so genuinely happy and enthusiastic. that they are always in the centre of activities with the children and the staff/child ratio seems much higher than we have previously been used to. The atmosphere always feels charged with excitement staff are never just sat chatting together while the children play without guidance that the walls are full of beautiful artwork and creations that are beautifully presented that James came home singing Waltzing Matilda after Australia Day!! That Thomas always comes home with paint under his fingernails the packed programme of activities that you do with the children each month how you want the parents to be involved and informed by having coffee evenings that James talks about the nice new friends he has made and talks about the staff by name that Thomas always has artwork to bring home and we know he’s not just crawling around all day that the staff always remember our childrens names, right from the first week the rooms and outside areas are so beautifully set out that James loves Kindalin food that James does exercises! That you have our child’s best interests at heart and look after them like we do.

Thank you so much Kristy for letting Luciana attend Thursdays for this short period of time. I can’t tell you how much Kindalin has made a difference to Luciana and how happy she actually is to come to kindy. She talks constantly about Miss Cathy and Miss Ashlee and looks forward to going.
