Who are we

At Community Kids Haven we are implementing the Reggio approach. The children engage in a variety of learning using a large range of resources from wooden blocks to loose parts. The children participate in an indoor / outdoor curriculum that is based on the children’s interests.

Hola Ardeer community,

My name is Ana, and I am the Centre Director at Community Kids Haven Ardeer since we opened on the 12th of July, 2021.
I have worked in the Early Learning Sector for 30 years, starting as an assistant and working my way up to Centre Director. I am a proud mother of three daughters and an abuela (grandmother) of five beautiful grandchildren I adore.

I strongly believe it takes a village to support, extend, and develop a child's full potential. Acknowledging how children perceive and engage with the world around them and connecting their experiences and surroundings with the Early Years Learning Framework's five Learning Outcomes, Principles, and Practices is essential.

My vision is for my team to offer programs suitable for children's development, enabling them to acquire skills and knowledge while maintaining good physical and mental health.
I am committed to leading a team that brings various skills, knowledge, and understanding related to their unique cultural experiences.

I will mentor our team to be ongoing learners, developing pedagogical skills to embrace the children under our care, their families and our community.
We will work together as a strong and committed team, with each member performing their best.

We take sun protection very seriously at Community Kids Haven. Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes wrinkles and skin and eye damage, ultimately leading to skin cancer.

UV cannot be seen or felt. It is not like the sun’s light which we see, or the sun’s warmth (infrared radiation) which we feel. Our senses cannot detect UV so it can be damaging without us knowing. There is a huge variation in UV levels across Australia. The UV level is affected by a number of factors including the time of day, time of year, cloud cover, altitude, proximity to the equator, scattering and reflection.

Take away the guesswork of the UV exposure each day by checking out the SunSmart UV widget. The widget shows the sun protection times closest to our centres location, making it easier than ever to be smart about your sun exposure all year.
