Our Team

The staff at Umina Kids Clubs are selected because of their commitment to ensuring the highest quality care and education for your children. The staff are highly qualified and because of the enrolment capacity of our services we employ 3 University Qualified staff, along with 2 Diploma qualified staff members each day and these staff are the driving force behind our high quality learning programs offered to the children.

It is also important for families to feel connected to the staff and to develop a nurturing partnership with their child’s individual carers. “Through a widening network of secure relationships, children develop confidence and feel respected and valued. They become increasingly able to recognise and respect feelings of others and to interact positively with them.”  (‘Belonging, Being & Becoming’ The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia. P.12)
