Centre Manager profile

Kirsty Lake

Hi my name is Kirsty,

Thanks for taking the time to read about our unique centre.

My passion for early learning education started in 1998 where I gave up floristry after years to take a path to educating our young people and to use my creative side to provide an enticing environment for all ages.

I have had great opportunities to experience different positions within the sector from educator, assistant director to director. I strive to create a culture within the centre that is warm and caring. An environment where you feel as parents, your child is safe, secure and listened to. A home away from home, where the door is always open for you to come in and be a part of your child’s journey.

At Colonel Light Gardens we believe childhood is a time for discovery, exploration, investigation and imagination. To help build and develop the foundation skills children need to reach their full potential throughout life.

My philosophy is to have a holistic approach, incorporating a deep understanding of the dynamics of early learning:

  • Play based educational programs based on current research, for example: play and enquiry, brain based learning and dimensions of learning.
  • Natural environments that engage the child’s five senses, provoking wonder, curiosity and intellectual engagement.

Please enjoy our website and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Testimonials

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“For various reasons, including living overseas, our daughter has attended 4 childcare centres and 2 kindy’s. CLG world of learning is at the top of our list. It is a great centre and I always feel comfortable leaving our daughter in their care. My daughter has food allergies and I have never been made to feel like this is an inconvenience. Staff have always been very understanding and have taken the matter seriously, which is such a relief. Thanks all!”

“Our son has been attending the Colonel Light Gardens World of Learning Centre for nearly 12 months. The staff have been incredibly kind, generous and patient with him and our family over this time, especially during his initial settling in period. It was not all smooth sailing in the early weeks as separation anxiety set in (for both him and us!) but the staff worked tirelessly to make my son feel safe and happy in his new surroundings, as well as reassuring us that he would soon settle in and all would be well. It was this care and compassion that has meant our son now happily spends a couple of days a week learning, being happy and making friends in such a supportive environment. Thank you to all the staff at CLG World of Learning!”

“We have found ‘Colonel Light Gardens World Of Learning’ to be an excellent place to send our daughter. She is now two and a half and has been going since 12 months of age. We have seen her learn and grow across two of their rooms – the ‘Nursery’ and ‘Tweenies’ and she is absolutely thriving. At two years of age, we can have a complete conversation with her, she is loving and greatly independent and the childcare has been a huge factor in this development. Since being at Colonel Light Gardens World Of Learning, they have offered a free nutrition seminar for the parents , grandparents & special friends day(s), Christmas parties and several other engaging activities. Our daughter is also a part of an extra-curricular activity called ‘Hey Dee Ho’ whereby an emphasis is placed on learning through music, song and dance; just another extra. The carers are a delight and go above and beyond to ensure your child is not only comfortable but developing also. I would strongly recommend this childcare centre.”

– Brooke

 

“Both of our girls have attended Colonel Light Gardens World Of Learning from a young age over the past 4 years. The centre has become like a second family to the girls who both feel very comfortable and happy during their time in care. The staff are caring and attentive and always assist where possible. I can rely on them in any situation and I dont need to worry about the girls at all while Im at work, as I know they are very happy when they are there. I would highly recommend this centre.”
