Meet Your Approved Provider

Damien Downing

My name is Damien Downing and I am the owner-operator of Kool Kidz Merrifield. I was previously a teacher in both Primary and Secondary schools. I am very passionate about the education sector and thus my involvement in the childcare industry.

I look forward to providing a quality service for the local community enabling your children to thrive in a leading educational environment.

I pride my service on selecting quality staff who will put your child’s needs first and being attentive to family routines. As the Approved Provider I will be on site full-time overseeing the care environment for your children. I am therefore available to speak with constantly. Community engagement is a key goal of mine and I look forward to being a key part of the expansion of Merrifield and its surrounding areas.

I very much hope to see you soon and welcome you to the Kool Kidz Merrifield family.

Kjerstin Prosenik
Amazing facility with educators who can certainly put your mind at ease. As a FTM sending my fully breastfed baby to childcare at 11 months was scary. He had never napped without me or taken a bottle. But the educators in the room listened to me, didn’t force my son to do anything he wasn’t ready to and did a fantastic job at keeping me aware of how he was adjusting. We’ve been there a year and a half now and not only do I know my son is cared for, fed well, and learning heaps; I’ve had the privilege... Read More »

I can not believe that people would give anything less than 5 stars to this centre, my son has been going there since he was 10 months old he is now 2 all staff, educators, reception and manager have been wonderful with us and also our son, they have always followed our direction with regards to our sons medical history, his behaviours, routines and daily care, each time i have spoken to them about small concerns they have all been so understanding and have changed things to accommodate our needs and also the needs of our son, i would never...

Amazing child care facility! Not sure why people had given 1 star or had given a bad review! The educators are trained and very efficient everytime my child is injured or even had a little bump on his head, they were very quick to respond. My son has developed into a happy, friendly, caring boy and has been there since 10 months old. Have had the greatest experience with this child care!

Our son has joined this childcare 13 months ago and since then we have been very happy and satisfied of the service that management and friendly staff provide to him. We feel there is an open and friendly environment where everyone is keen to make sure kids receive best education and experience in a safe environment. Highly recommended

During group time we spoke about the national flags of the world. We showed the children all the flags and few of the children were able to recognise their own countries flags. Flags show us that we belong to something bigger and stand as iconic national symbols to identify each other.

After the group time we extended the activity by giving them white paper and draw their favourite country flag by. It encourages culture competence in the early years and they have the ability to understand and honour difference.
