About Us

Care for Kids is 100% locally owned and operated.  Care for Kids management has been involved in the care and education of Perth children for over 15 years

We provide services for families of all economic, cultural and ethnic backgrounds and respect the individual rights of all families.

Our Philosophy

Care for Kids combines caring with education by following the principles and practices of the Early Years Learning Framework and the philosophies of Reggio Emilia. We recognise young children as capable and competent citizens of our community. We strive to create an environment where Educators and children co- construct their learning together. We acknowledge that children learn best when working with others, including other children, family, educators and the community .

Our educational program and projects are  driven by the children’s interest and curiosity .  Educators listen to the children to discover these interests, they use this knowledge to plan the educational program and  the environment. Children’s thoughts and progression of thinking is carefully documented and displayed, making their thoughts visible in many different ways.

At Care for Kids we nurture and foster positive experiences throughout the day to ensure children have a sense of belonging.  We recognize that early positive experiences lay the foundations for children to reach their full potential.

Cost

We are committed to providing affordable, quality care and education for all families.
The amount you pay is dependent on the amount of Child Care Rebate and Child Care Benefit you receive. Child Care Rebate is NOT income or asset tested – half of the cost will be met by Child Care Rebate for approx 99% of families. Child Care Benefit is income tested.  You can choose to have your Child Care Rebate and Child Care Benefit paid directly to us, so you only have to pay the gap.

We would be pleased to discuss this further with you and to calculate an estimate of the amount you have to pay.
