On 21 March 2016, Kool Kidz Mill Park Childcare and Kindergarten opened their doors to local children and their parents providing quality childcare and education.
Owner and Approved Provider, Nicole Llewellyn, a local resident, and mother to 4 children herself, takes pride in delivering such a service to the local community whilst also employing over 30 staff in early childhood education roles, reception/administration, cook and management positions.
Over the past year, the educators have had the pleasure of observing individual children grow in various developmental areas; confidence, socially, emotionally and academically, along with enhancing their own personalities within the Kool Kidz family of Mill Park.
For their 1st birthday, Kool Kidz Mill Park had a celebration, where all children, parents/guardians and grandparents were invited to join them and their animal farm, courtesy of Kevin from Leighs Farmyard Friends (Thomastown). The children were able to engage and interact with sheep, goats, ducks, chickens, geese and a pig and rabbit. The animals were very well fed and patted gently by the children throughout the visit. The children thoroughly enjoyed this experience with a lot of happy squealing and shrieking, and great memories to take home.
The children in the Butterflies and Kinder rooms also enjoyed a PE Sports session with Nick who took them through games such as “Simon says”, and “Roll the dice”, where the children had to do exercises such as star jumps, depending on the dice number which showed. There were many different ball activities to develop their hand-eye coordination skills, along with “Egg and Spoon” races. The children enjoyed the physicality of the session that Nick delivered, as their laughter and sportsmanship for each other was a great success.
Finally, Kool Kidz Mill Park had Bibi from Bibi’s Face Art (South Morang) who painted the children’s faces, with their choice of art and provided each child with different balloon art.
Kool Kidz Mill Park takes great pride in both being involved in the local community and involving the local community in many activities including today’s birthday party.
Happy 1st Birthday Kool Kidz Mill Park with many happy returns.
