Funded Kindergarten Program
Choklits has a funded four-year-old kindergarten program run by Elena Ermakova who holds a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education. Our Kindergarten programs are the same as council run Kindergartens and private schools. The difference is we operate from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, are open 52 weeks of the year including all school holidays and cater for all family and work situations.
We opened our brand new Kindergarten Room in June, 2018.
From the Choklits Community...
Our daughter started in the nursery at Choklits when she was 10 months old and the wonderful room leader Jodi was there holding our hands through the whole transition. From amazing Chef Helen’s delicious food, to the support and advice from our lovely educator Talia on crazy pre toddler sleep routines, we couldn’t possibly be happier!! Thank you all!
From the moment we stepped in the door at Choklits it was a warm and caring environment. From having a background in Childcare I knew what I was looking for and what I wanted for our son. The carers not only took the time to get to know our then 17 month old but also us as parents which provided a great sense of community. The Choklits program offers so many enriching learning opportunities and encourages children’s sense of belonging. Our now 2 year old is thriving and has achieved so many of his milestones. With the assistance of every staff member and the continued nurture of the Choklits community he will continue to develop and enhance his social and emotional wellbeing and physical development and we could not be more thankful to all those involved 🙂
Choklits has been a mainstay of our family for the past 20+. My sister attended in the late 1990’s, and my three children have been attending since 2010. One of the main things I love about the Choklits team is the consistency of the staff, they have very low turnover, which shows that it must also be a great environment to work in. Jade has done a wonderful job with the centre, it is the best it’s ever been, and we are so sad that our time is coming to an end as our daughter heads off to School next year. I will highly recommend Choklits to everyone who asks, there are so many wonderful things to say, but the most important is the wonderful team of staff who care for our children, you really couldn’t ask for a better group of carers who support, care for and educate our children. Special mention to Sue, Tracy and Cassie who have cared for my children since they were small babes!
We recently switched to Choklits from a previous childcare provider and could not be happier with the service provided. The staff are so friendly, and caring, our kids get very excited about going each day. The sugar free menu prepared by the chef is fantastic, we are very, very happy with the move!
If Sue is educating and caring for your children, they are in the best hands, she possesses all the qualities required to teach, love and grow. Choklits is the best centre with Sue in the Director’s chair, her calm positivity to make everyone’s day the best is what makes it great
