Hello, My name is Jaimee Simpson, I am the Centre Director here at Community Kids Haven Greensborough, I am very proud to be apart of this wonderful centre.
My journey commenced within the Early Learning Sector over 13 years ago, from a young age I was always passionate about children, as the oldest of three girls, I often found myself teaching and guiding my younger sisters through life, after school I decided to commence my journey within the sector and follow my passion.
I currently hold a Diploma In children’s services and just recently have commenced studying a Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management, to further develop my skills, I feel it is so important to constantly reflect and improve on our practices and further our knowledge.
I believe all children and families should have access to quality education and care, where they feel safe, supported, valued and heard at all times, I believe it is important we see each child for the unique individual that they are, respecting their differences, their ideas, interests, and individual learning styles.
I believe each child’s backgrounds and cultures can bring value to our centre.
As Educators we play a valuable role in a child’s learning and development and it is our duty to ensure we provide them with a stimulating, fun, warm, welcoming, home like environment where they can flourish and be themselves while developing crucial life long skills.
I thrive to build strong, trusting relationships with the children, families, educators, and community. It is my goal for each person who walks through our doors, to feel welcomed.
I encourage you to book a tour, come and see our wonderful centre and see why our Families, Educators and Children love our centre!

Wonderful centre. The educators are warm, caring and dedicated to looking after and building a lovely relationship with your little one. I was really apprehensive about going back to work full time with an 18month old but felt so reassured the fact that he absolutely loves coming here. The admin side of things is incredibly professional and well run and Anthea is always happy and patient with every question or query. In what must have been a really stressful time you would not have picked up on it as everyone has been so calm and positive.
We love CKH Greensborough. Our son has been going since he was 7 months old and he absolutely loves it. The staff are caring, nurturing, supportive and kind. They treat him like part of the family. I love how the educators are fostering life long skills in our little boy. We consider ourselves very lucky to have picked such an amazing centre.

The staff at Community Kids Haven, Greensborough are warm and friendly and pay close attention to the needs and interests of the children in their care. The centre itself has recently been renovated and looks fantastic, the play areas outside are fresh and inviting.
Excellent centre where my daughter attends. Staff are professional and caring. We could not be happier with the service they provide.
It's the best daycare I see and I heard. My two sons are loving to play there everyday. They love the food and the staffs are friendly. Connie is the best person in the world. My two sons love Connie so much. The director of the daycare is a nice and responsible person, all the staffs there will be good too. It won't go wrong.
Enjoyed a wonderful grandparents day with my grandson in this warm, caring loving environment. I appreciate that Kuba is so fortunate to be so very cared for and educated by these professional and genuinely loving staff. He couldn't be anywhere better while we are all working. Xx

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.
