Kingdom Kare Philosophy

Our aim is to provide children with a safe, secure and supportive environment where they are encouraged to be children. Through educational play experiences children will become confident and knowledgeable lifelong learners.

Kingdom Kare values that each child will know, feel and understand they are loved and respected unconditionally in our care. It is through this relationship, that we assist the children in our care to be the person they want to be.

Children are incredibly capable and imaginative individuals. However, they still need support and encouragement from educators to assist them in forming lifelong skills and to develop social relationships that will ultimately aid their holistic development.
