What our Parents Say

“At Coolum Kindy, my daughter was encouraged to explore her individuality and use her imagination through play based learning. Over the year I watched her develop into a confident, assertive and autonomous little person under the guidance of staff who showed warmth, care and empathy. Education regarding healthy food choices was encouraged and there was excellent communication between caregivers and staff. I would definitely recommend this community kindy to any parent looking to prepare their child for school.”- Rebecca (parent 2014, 2016)


“Aside from my son’s excellent early learning experience, it was obvious from the first time we walked in to the centre that this was a place that has really been loved by hundreds of children and their parents over the last few decades. Every where you look there is evidence of the contributions of parents, who are also encouraged to be in a real partnership with the incredibly passionate and dedicated teaching staff. Community spirit is certainly alive and well in this wonderful Coolum institution!” Lisa (parent 2016)


"Everyone we spoke to prior to being parents, who had sent their child to Jones Parade Kindy spoke so highly of it, so when we were offered a placement for our son we were so excited that now he was to be part of this beautiful kindy. And beautiful it is! Lyndal, Wendy and Kate are such special ladies who are passionate about their kindy and the little people that attend everyday. It is a homely little kindy with a great community spirit and passion amongst all the parents who also work hard behind the scenes to make Coolum Kindy the great place it is. I would highly recommend this kindy to all parents who are at the stage in life of beginning their child's education. They are in safe and loving hands." -Mel (parent 2016)
