Nominated Supervisor and Centre Manager
Hello, my name is Kristy Newton,
I have been a part of the Kids Capers Family since 2013. I started at the North Lakes service as Assistant Centre Manager and still reside there while supporting other Capers teams in their progress towards Quality Programs and Practice. I hold an Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services through Tafe QLD and have been in the profession since 2002 across many roles.
I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to network with Capers centres, Staff, Management and Families to help build an inclusive program that is engaging and co-collaborative for children. I work with Educators to mentor, support and instill knowledge and training, and support them in implementing a program that enhances learning and development that harnesses children’s natural inquisitiveness, abilities and learning goals.
With the guidance and support of my fellow Educational Leaders we aim to be leaders in developing holistic programs for learning, development and play.
Hi my name is Kylee Kenn, I am fortunate to be the support manager for some of the Kids Capers centres including North Lakes, Sandgate, Northgate, Bald Hills and Wamuran.
My passion for Early Childhood Education began in 2003, when I discovered and became passionate about the Early Years and children’s Development, I joined the Kids Capers family at Clayfield in 2010. During my time, I have transferred between Capers centres in various roles.
My intention in this role is to support our management teams to bring the best outcomes for our children and families and encourage the development and growth of our wonderful educators to reach their full potential as professionals in the Early Years of the children’s lives.
As you walk through our large wooden recycled front door, you will feel at home. The environment has been mindfully designed with natural furniture and toys. We have also added vintage and upcycled materials to create an environment that is homely and inviting.
Much of our day is spent outdoors in our natural playground which is designed to engage, challenge and provide unlimited learning opportunities. The grassed playscape includes a vegetable garden, a workshop and garage, a huge climbing log, a cubby, a tunnel and plenty of spaces to play, create and pretend.
We run a play based program where children build on their current interests and family lifestyle practices while following the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). We also provide a Government Approved kindergarten Program following the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines.
The Centre provides sought after nursery places for babies from 6 weeks of age. Our beautiful rooms and outdoor environment combined with the nurturing nature of our experienced Educators, make Kids Capers Bald Hills your home away from home.
We recognise that as parents you are your child’s first and most influential teacher, which is why our team of Educators pride themselves on working to build strong and meaningful partnerships with our families. We invite you to visit our centre and meet our team in the hope that you will become part of the Kids Capers Bald Hills community.
“We would like to recognise the traditional landowners of this land, the Turrbal people, on whose land we play and learn on today”
Our Children are the forefront, that drives our curriculum. They are the heart of our teaching pedagogy and lead our curriculum. We see each individual child as capable and confident learners, with a diverse, inclusive and responsive program, we value and respect each child.
Our families are the foundation to scaffold enriching, engaging and meaningful programs and are our children’s first learners. With positive relationships shared amongst all stakeholders, it provides flourishing futures for all children within our Bald Hills Community.
You will discover natural environments that are unique, inclusive, safe and inviting. The environment reflects our endeavour to embed sustainable practices and work towards a more holistic approach.
