Glenn’s mother had lived in a small house at Umina for all of his life time and on her passing he felt that one of the best ways to dedicate to her all the wonderful memories they had shared there as children, was to start a child care centre. Glenn’s mother had always loved looking after all the children in the neighbourhood and so began the construction of Umina Kids Club.
Our service opening in May 2007 and currently look after 72 children a day and their wonderful families.
In 2009 we were presented with the opportunity to expand and as our Umina service was at capacity we selected a beautiful property over looking Kariong. Many families from the peninsular who had been unable to gain positions in our Umina service felt that this would work for them also as they daily travel to Sydney and could access this centre easily.
Hence the construction commenced and in January 2010 we were able to open our second gorgeous, purpose built facility. As Kariong caters for 90 children a day, Kids Clubs are now fortunate enough to share in the lives of over 300 families a week and we love it!
