Vaucluse Kinder Haven

About Us

Welcome to Vaucluse Kinder Haven!

Our lovely, intimate centre operates between the hours of 7:00 am and 6:00 pm. We provide quality care and education for children aged from 12 weeks to 5 years at our exceptional service.

All food is prepared with our multicultural community in mind, with many ingredients coming directly from the garden. We have a large vegetable garden that the children have access to, along with a centre bunny rabbit called Spice.

At Vaucluse Kinder Haven we encourage indoor-outdoor play to support our calm, peaceful routines.

We believe that incursions, excursions and extracurricular activities are a fantastic way to further develop each child’s broader understanding of the world. We host a Music class and Yoga twice a week, Growfit and excursions are planned once a week. We proudly started in 2019 Intergenerational Program with the local Aged Care, Mark Moran Vaucluse. All incursions and excursions are included in our fees and available for all age groups.

A Bachelor qualified teacher leads a team of quality educators to deliver our School Readiness Program, an initiative made to ease the transition to formal school learning easier on both families and children. Each child at our centre has their own portfolio with individual programs created for them.

Our childcare centre proudly offers a kindergarten/preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way, with a strong partnership with the local Public School and a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more your child will become school ready.

Our doors are always open for families who may wish to see our facilities. Our phones are always on and we are happy to hear from current and prospective families.

We look forward to hearing from you and showing you around our amazing centre!


Centre Manager Profile

Sharifa Zunaiza Syed Zain

Kiner Haven Vaucluse Childcare Centre Manager

I have had the pleasure of working with Kinder Haven Vaucluse since 2016 working as an early childhood teacher, educational leader, assistant centre manager and now Centre Manager. I hold a bachelor in early childhood teaching and graduated in 2008 from the University of South Australia. Coming from sunny Singapore, I bring with me 20 years of working in the early childhood education and care settings in different roles that lead me to understand the ever-changing and thriving sector better.

I believe each child learns and develops differently. It is essential to understand, recognise, respect and accept the diversity of every child.

In Kinder Haven, we also encourage open communication between educators, children as well as families to build good relationships. Regular updates on child and school matters benefit everyone around. Our beautiful service also places importance on partnerships with our family and the community and we take pride in the multicultural and diverse backgrounds around us.

We welcome and look forward to seeing you in Kinder Haven Vaucluse.

I am absolutely delighted with this daycare. The staff are all wonderful and really seem to genuinely care about the children and enjoy interacting with them each day.The activities organised for the children are diverse and whilst they have a learning plan to follow, the staff seem to allow the children much latitude to do self-directed learning through play.”
