   11 ratings more

Essendon Fields Kinder Haven is conveniently located at Essendon Fields Shopping Centre and is part of the Essendon Airport. The centre provides a rich, nurturing environment for children between the ages of six weeks to five years and is open from 6.30am to 6.30pm. Our qualified educators are trained in early childhood development and our centre is purpose-built, designed and equipped to meet the unique needs of children in each appropriate age range.

Along with personalised attention and support, this approach creates a fun and engaging environment that supports learning throughout the day, for each and every child. For your convenience, nappies are provided and meals are prepared daily using fresh market ingredients. We take great pride in incorporating environmental sustainability into our everyday; children learn about recycling items, growing and eating vegetables and lessening our impact on the planet.

Flexible Hours

Our centre is offering Flexible Hours to support families to make the most out of the government’s Child Care Subsidy. Consisting of nine-hour, ten-hour, and full day options, the new Flexible Hours model will give families the freedom to choose which hours best suit their individual circumstances. Families will not be limited by start and finish times like other models from competitors, and there will be no associated fees or conditions around the minimum amount of flexible hours days they are able to access.

The staff in Nursery 1 are fantastic (especially Rosalind, Tiana and Carol) and all educators and carers have made my daughter feel safe and loved. They update the app regularly with photos and observations and are cloth nappy friendly which is very important to me. Ally at the front desk is helpful and consistent which has helped a lot with the adjustment period that a change of management has.
I cannot speak highly enough about Kinder Haven Essendon Fields. I currently have two children who attend the Centre. The staff are friendly, welcoming and very approachable. My kids just love spending time at the centre and at times I even have trouble getting them to leave. The centre has a great feel. Management are very flexible and and will always do their best to assist with last minute emergency placement. Chantelle and Rachel are an asset to the Centre. Highly recommend.
