Byron Bay Child Care Centre
At Kool Beanz Academy Byron Bay, we’re proud to call the picturesque Byron Bay home and enjoy connecting with local members of our community. Our centre sits just a short walk away from the beachy, tranquil vibes of our beautiful city that shines through at our Early Learning Centres.
At our state-of-the-art facility, your child will love our ‘home away from home’ atmosphere, where everybody feels valued, cared for and welcome. As a family-owned and operated centre, we can provide a genuine, hands-on approach to your child’s education. Regardless of their interests, talents, and unique needs, each child will receive dedicated support and care from our experienced educators.
Our centre has space for 75 children aged from six weeks to six years. During their time at Kool Beanz Academy Byron Bay, your child will develop crucial social, emotional, and cognitive skills, preparing them well for school and life beyond.
To ensure every child receives care suited to their developmental needs, we have divided our kindergarten service into five rooms; Babies, Toddlers, Junior Kindy, Senior Kindy and Preschool.
In our Junior Kindy group, we emphasise emotional and social growth. Our educators recognise the immense importance of healthy socialisation in these early years, so we provide children with many opportunities to play with friends and express their individuality.
Through our Future Champs sports program, designed specifically for Junior Kindy kids, your child will also develop crucial motor skills, emotional control, patience, teamwork, leadership among many other valuable traits through sports and games.
In our Senior Kindy room, we build upon these skills while introducing new activities like literacy and maths. We also begin emphasising responsibility, independence, and confidence in every child. To prepare for their transition to ‘Big School’, junior and senior kindy kids enjoy activities such as:
- Cooking classes
- Sport and exercise
- Reading and writing
- Music and dance
- Japanese classes
Our Senior Kindy class also includes a reading and literacy program—I Love Reading or ILR—that stimulates rapid English learning.
These varied activities will open your child’s eyes to a world of opportunity. By engaging in hands-on play—both individually and in groups—your child will leave our centre with an amazing set of tools to take on the rest of their learning journey.
Our early learning program focuses on your child’s journey. By interacting with our dedicated educators, peers, and environments, your child will expand their view of the world around them and explore their innate curiosities.
In our Byron Babies Room, your child will receive age-appropriate support and care. For this age group, we focus on achieving cognitive, social, and physical milestones.
In our Toddler’s Room, we focus on imagination and exploration, encouraging messy play and other expressive activities.
Provide your child the best start in their life by getting in touch with us to arrange a private tour of our first class Early Learning Centre.
Message From Centre Director Sarah Clydsdale
Welcome to Kool Beanz Byron Bay. My name is Sarah Clydsdale and I am your Centre Director and Nominated Supervisor.
My professional background is working in disability services management, internal auditing and compliance. I have previously been a successful childcare (OSHC) business owner and I have been working in the childcare industry now for 10 years.
I am currently studying a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood Teaching (Birth – 5 years) as well as studying to becoming a mindfulness facilitator for the purpose of including mindfulness into children’s lives.
I became an Early Childhood Educator because I truly love the idea of making a difference in the lives of our most precious and vulnerable people. I love how children can learn so much from us in their most critical first 5 years of life. My goal for the early childhood sector is to introduce a more natural program and engage the children in indigenous cultural learning as part of our everyday program.
