What Our Parents are Saying
I have enjoyed reading about what you all do with the children every week and I have been very impressed with the amount of intentional learning and teaching that you give the children. It’s not like a lot of childcares I’ve seen where they just let the children run around but teach very little. Almost want to put Leeya into more days but we’ve got so many activities lined up on other days, it’s been hard for me to figure which to give up.
I want to thank you and your team for the dedication that you give every child. It is amazing for me to see Leeya so happy at the end of school day every time and it warmed my heart to see the pictures you all took with every child that day (Thursday), printed and pinned on the board so efficiently. Pure amazing!

Thanks a lot for the gift you sent to me!! I like it very much. I felt I didn’t do much the other day… I really enjoyed the time I spent with the kids for the dumpling making. They are so cute and smart!!! It’s absolutely more rewarding than my daily job. (My Mum saw my pictures with the kids and thought I could probably be a kindergarten teacher someday, as I looked so happy ^_^)
I would also like to thank you for the fantastic team you have in the Butterfly room. They are all very caring and responsible. I was very impressed by the food related program Miki initiated and organised. The kids loved it and learnt a lot from the activities. Phi Phi explained to me the difference between processed food and unprocessed food yesterday. I was amazed! Your staff is really talented and passionate about what they do everyday.
I like the share and learn sessions and kids library programs Ali initiated as well. They are very structured and educational. It’s really helpful for their transition to school next year.
Thanks again for everything you and your staff created for the lovely kids! If there is anything I can participate or contribute in the future, please let me know.

I want to personally thank you for organising the graduation ceremony and gift for the kinder class, I am very sorry Amelie missed it. I was very touched by the thoughtful graduation gift and especially a picture of Amelie with her hat. She looked all grown up!
Thank you for your support and helping shape who she is. Your hearts are really there for the children and not many Centre share the same passion. Thank you, and thank you.
Hope you have a great X’mas and New Years!

Hi Kathy and the Koolkidz family,
Tiffany and I Thank you and the team so much for the lovely card and gift for Thomas. We are sure he will get much enjoyment out of playing with his new toy.
We would also like to let you know how much we appreciate what everyone has done and does for Olivia to make her time at Koolkidz a great one. Olivia has been at Koolkidz since she was around 6 months old. Ever since her first day her educators have been amazing and been a big part of her life so far. During her first year, like most kids it was challenging when Mum and Dad left for the day but the time and effort that Cheryl made to make sure Olivia felt loved and safe and enjoyed her time in day care was invaluable and we are so greatful. During Olivia’s time in the Honeybees room she has blossomed. Again when she first moved rooms I would get tears and reluctant even to go into the room. Gulsen and her team have been just awesome in the way they have made Olivia feel loved and that the Honeybees room is her room and a place of fun. She now talks of each of her educators and looks forward to her days at Koolkidz. Tiffany and I are also so impressed and appreciative of the curriculum that Gulsen is teaching. The arts, cooking, outside play, teaching of independence we think are such a great experience for Olivia. We love Gulsen’s passion for what she does and the results of that we can see in Olivia. We can not speak more highly of the Honeybees team and how much they do for Olivia.
Our appreciation does not just stop at the educators. We has seen a significant difference in the centre since Paul, Thari and yourself have taken over the management. It makes us so happy to bring Olivia to such a well run centre where everyone is so welcoming and it’s such a great environment for children. Everywhere we walk there is a “Hi Olivia” from the team in the kitchen to other educators from other room and especially Megan on the front desk who Olivia has had a soft spot for since day one. We love everything you guys do and make our family’s experience a great one. We also have been ever so thankful for your flexibility in getting extra days at short notice – it makes those difficult times so less stressful.
Please share this with the teams as we want to make sure they know we are so thankful for what everyone at Koolkidz does for our little lady.
Won’t be too long and we will have another Hope enrolled to enjoy the experience his sister does.
Chris and Tiffany

Hi Kathy, Paul and Tari,
I’m sure I speak on behalf of all my fellow Educator’s, when I say a big thank you for all our special gifts and surprises today for ECE day! It means so much to be recognised in such a special way. The notes on our door were so beautiful. I enjoy a couple of chocolate coated strawberries and a cup cake. I loved my certificate (it’s going on my fridge) and my perfume smells fabulous!
Each day I look forward to caring, educating and looking after the children at Kool Kidz and am thankful it is such a positive and supportive place to work.
Thank you again,
Louise E Robar

Can i just say what a brilliant job you and your husband are doing since youve taken over?
The weekly reflections, the improved morale of staff, you guys are just “all over it” – It’s brilliant.
Really appreciate your thoroughness and the standards you guys are setting. It’s extremely noticeable.

Dear Kathy & Paul,
Thank you SO much for putting on the Lion Dance yesterday. It was such a fun experience – I think I was more excited than Penny & Luke but they loved it as well. Penny was telling everyone today about seeing the “dragons”!
It will be such a great memory for them.

Thank you so much for the wonderful notes, photos and emails over the last few weeks. You are a brilliant Educator and I really appreciate all you do for my little man. Since you have started on mornings Evan no longer cries when I leave and he is genuinely excited to enter the room. You make a real difference to his day and mine. Thanks again for today’s note, I’m sure the kids would have enjoyed the slime! See you Monday.

I’d like to thank you properly for the happy environment that you and the teams have provided for Angus. After persisting with a very unhappy starter you have helped him really enjoy his time each day – and in turn made it easier for us.
All the educators and carers have been lovely to deal with – from front desk all the way to the kitchen. Hopefully all our children will be able to enjoy some time here.

It’s lovely to see him playing and exploring . I can’t thank enough all the educators (Angelic, Aman, Cheryl, Chitransha and Rosemary) for making him feel so comfortable.

Just writing to let you know that we are very thankful for the support and care from Kool Kidz.
We just really want to thank you all for looking after David and ensuring that he has a good day each time. You have all always made it easy for both Tony and myself to feel comfortable leaving little David (though he always puts up a bit of a cry at drop-off) and we are a lot less anxious these days. With the photos you send us and general updates, we can see that David copes well and enjoys being at Kool Kidz; he has become so confident since he has started with Kool Kidz. Initially we have been a little worried with David’s physical abilities as he was born prematurely and had few issues as a baby but he seemed to have overcome that and we are really happy with the overall care and learning provided to David by Kool Kidz.
He comes home – singing and dancing and now practices his ABC’s!

I just wanted to say a proper thank you to you and your amazing team in Caterpillars. I am so grateful to you all for how well Gracie is looked after, how happy she is (after her initial attempts at being sad!) and how stimulated she is at KK. I am not sure I express enough, how much easier you guys make it for me to leave her each day, knowing what a great service it is.
Can I also just say how amazing all her easter treats are – so much effort and creativity, and far more than I could manage myself!
Thank you again and have a gorgeous, well-deserved and restful long weekend.
We are so happy we found Kool Kidz (and we are moving to Flemington in a few months and have done some research on closer day care centres, and no other centres I’ve seen even compare!!)

Luna loves her bunny hat. She’s wearing it since arrived at home, and loving the bunny basket too

Thanks again so much for your support and that of all the SP staff this week. Christian has had a really rough week and even with so many kids to look after you did an awesome job of keeping me up to date on how he was going and most importantly of supporting him. I really appreciate it xx

I hope to meet James’s beautiful teacher/carer one day!
My husband and I have been enjoying the photos that you send to Lucy as well as the comments she makes about your loving care. Lucy calls the centre “school”; James certainly has a happy time there and comes home with interesting artwork. It sounds like a great centre. We never seem to be in Melbourne long enough to make time to visit you but we’ll try a bit harder this year, probably in Winter. Our garden is too big to leave for long in Mildura’s hot summer weather; the best we manage is 5 days, including driving time on two of the days.
Bless you heaps Despina.

I have been very happy with Kool Kidz. My son has settled in very well thanks to the amazing team in the Caterpillars room.

I dropped my son Mason off this morning. I just wanted to commend the team in Snuggle-Pots, they are AWESOME! Mason is obviously well loved and cared for, as he always gives and gets big smiles, hugs and kisses when he arrives or when we collect him. It makes me feel comfortable that we are leaving our little boy with people who obviously (and evidently) care well for him. Well done and thank you.

Thanks for welcoming Gaku into Kool Kidz. He is enjoying his time at child care and it’s thanks to great teachers in the room (i.e. Emma and Rosie)

Thank you SO much for these beautiful pics… and for putting on a birthday cake for Raf. He’s had the best week, feeling very special as this year he now understands it’s his birthday and he is 3. It’s heartwarming watching him run into Kool Kidz of a morning excited to see you all and start his day. Much appreciate your excellent care.

Just a quick email to let you know how happy we are that we decided to pick Kook Kidz as our first childcare facility to send Lucy to. I feel that, even though she currently only attends one day a week, she is still made to feel really special and the staff are so fun and so loving. I would like to especially highlight Ruby- who has been wonderful and so lovely with Lucy – but has also been extremely sympathetic to the difficulties of a first time Mum leaving her “baby” in the care of others for the first time. Thank you so much.

What I find at Kool Kidz are friendly staff, family environment, amazing owner who is always there for families and supporting the staff members and happy team. Kool Kidz worth more than any other childcare centre which has an age appropriate and natural environment like a home. The services provides individual routine for each child’s.

For our children, its the end of the rainbow, a place of make-believe that, but for the stardust and tinsel that sometimes comes home with them, is all so dreamy.

The Kindergarten program at Kool Kidz has been wonderful for William.

He loves thinking of what he is going to take to show and tell once a week and talks about what the other kids bring.
