What makes you passionate about working in childcare?

Happy Hippo Kindergarten and Childcare Brunswick provide families and children a home away from home. We pride ourselves on our inclusive practices and the relationships we build with our Families and children. Our Educators always put the children first at every opportunity, our aim is to have fun in a safe and supported learning centre. We don’t just focus on their care needs we ensure their learning and development at every opportunity.

Our Service provides a variety of extra curriculum activities such as our Mini Master Chef Classes, Little Sports Heroes, Out and About programs, Italian and much more.

We have two qualified Kindergarten Teachers who operated our funded 4-year-old and 3-year-old kindergarten programs. 

We offer a strong School Readiness Program for all preschool aged children and quality childcare and Kindergarten programs to prepare your child for school.

With our FREE public holidays for all families and discounted holiday bookings, our Service is more affordable than ever.

Why do you believe your Centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare?

Knowing that we as Educators are privileged and empowered to teach the children the skills to learn. I am most passionate about observing the children achieving their milestones and progressing to their next stages of development, I find this is very rewarding.

As a Manager I enjoy supporting my Team to achieve new ways of thinking, to enhance their own personal values and beliefs. I love working with Families and supporting them, during what can often be a challenging time, especially during the early stages of beginning Care.

We look forward to Welcoming your family to Ours!
