Sam Johnson
Approved Provider

Hello! My name is Sam I am the Owner/Operator and Approved Provider of Kool Kidz @ Tarneit. I have been a primary and special needs teacher for 12 years. However more importantly I have been a Mummy for over 6 years.

I decided to embark on this journey, based on my experiences of childcare and what I wanted for my children. Every child matters and every child deserves a safe, happy and fun environment with the best care and education, as an educator I firmly believe that education must also be play-based and engaging, however as a mum I know that care, love and attention are just as important.

I understand the difficult decision to entrust another person with your child’s well-being and early development, therefore I will always be there to listen to you, your child and their educators to ensure everyone is together on this journey.

Jennifer
the Nominated Supervisor

Hi, I’m Jennifer (Jenn) the Nominated Supervisor of Kool Kidz Tarneit. I have been a member of the Kool Kidz Tarneit team since day one back in October 2014.

I currently live in Tarneit and share my life with my Fiancé Glenn. We also have a daughter (5) who will be starting School in 2018 and a son (2.5) who will be joining me back at Kool Kidz once we are re-opened.

I have been in the Early Childhood industry since 2005 and worked in an arrangement of care facilities. I have studied my Diploma in Children’s Services, Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services and am currently completing my Bachelor in Education (Primary) to further my knowledge of Education, allowing me to be better equipped to lead in the Early Childhood Sector.

I believe that knowledge is our greatest assets and we should each be allowing children opportunities to enhance their knowledge, giving into the questions, and guiding children with the tools they will need to flourish into humans that can be active leaders, positive members of society and make informed decisions throughout their lives. I believe that each child is unique, and I am passionate about being an advocate for children and their rights, through working together with families and the wider community.

My role at Kool Kidz is to work with and support Sam, and the entire Kool Kidz team, to provide your child and your family with the best quality early childhood education and care experience.

Please do not hesitate to come in and have a chat about what you are looking in an early childhood education and care service. This includes any questions, feedback or queries you may have. I really look forward to working in partnership with you and your family to guide and nurture your precious children into the most confident, knowledgeable and secure humans that they can be.
