Meet the Centre Manager – Tania Simpson

Kinder Haven Symonston Childcare Centre ManagerI have been involved in the Early Childhood Education and Care sector since 2002 and I hold a Bachelor of Early Childhood degree.

I am passionate about the fact that we never stop learning, so I am an avid reader and love to research a variety of philosophies and theories relating to early childhood, I then take the parts that resonate with me and use them in my everyday life and practices with children.

Our team are dedicated to provide children the best possible opportunities to learn and grow, by having secure and stable relationships with their educators provides the foundations of a child’s ability to feel confident in their surroundings and from this point learning happens.

We encourage you to book a tour and have a look at the centre to talk to us about our programs and what we have to offer your family.

Hear from our families

“My 18-month-old son absolutely loves Kinder Haven in Symonston. The friendly, supportive staff, the multiple large outdoor playgrounds, the vegetable garden with chickens, the delicious food cooked by an in-house cook, and all the games and learning activities he takes part in every day.

The things I love about this childcare centre are the amazing staff, the great facilities, the cleanliness of the centre and the daily photos and updates I receive about my son’s day, aligning his activities with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).

I know he is in great hands. He is learning everyday through play and organised sensory activities. It is a fabulous centre and I can’t recommend it highly enough. We are extremely satisfied with his care at Kinder Haven.”

  • Rachael


“Fantastic centre, highly recommended. Exceptional staff that are nurturing, attentive and friendly. Great communication verbally as well as electronically to keep up with the kids day. Management are very approachable and there’s consistency of care due to such a low staff turnover. Both our daughters have been going here since 1yo and have recommended Kinderhaven Symonston to many friends.”

  • Kylie


“I have had my children at Kinderhaven Symonston for nearly 4 years and we could not be happier. All of the staff are kind, caring and responsive and the centre is managed fantastically. Both of my children have very different personalities, one is shy and one is more outgoing, and the staff have always ensured that they treat each child as an individual and in a way that works for that specific child. I cannot recommend them highly enough!”

  • Caroline


“We have had our daughter here for over 18 months and are extremely happy with the service. The educators are wonderful and responsive, the facilities excellent and it is run very professionally. My daughter loves going here and feels very safe and at home. I would highly recommend the service to anyone looking for a professional, clean and friendly environment for their child.”

  • Vanessa


“Just started at this daycare and have found them very professional. Their email system is a brilliant way to communicate with busy parents. I have also found all their group leaders and assistants genuinely interested in children. They have excursions to fantastic places. The kids don’t come back hungry either! Have moved from one-day care to come to this one and waiting for more days! Would definitely recommend this centre.”
