Meet our Centre Manager

Hi my name is Teagan, I am the Centre Manager here at Aussie Kindies Early Learning Bacchus Marsh. I have worked in the Early Childhood Education and Care sector for over nine years and hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education.

Working in early childhood means I get to enjoy being a part of our children’s first five years as they learn and develop. It's so lovely seeing them have serious fun from the experiences and activities that are provided by our Lifelong Learning Curriculum. I am very passionate about creating and forming strong relationships with families and children, as I believe this is one of the most important things to make yourself the best possible Leader and Educator you can be.

Our educators are highly qualified, and our team is very dedicated to all children within our care. I believe we have a very strong dedicated and passionate team here at Bacchus Marsh who go above and beyond to help and to ensure we are providing the best possible care and offer support to our families if needed.

I absolutely love the community within Bacchus Marsh. We are active within our community and rally together to help with several fundraisers to help and assist our wider community. We look forward to welcoming you to our centre family!

National Quality Framework

This means that every effort is made to comply with the Education and Care Services National Law and the Education and Care Services National Regulation, the approved learning frameworks and the National Quality Standards.

Lifelong Learning Starts Here!

Aussie Kindies' bachelor qualified teachers and experienced educators are trained in Affinity Education's Lifelong Learning Curriculum, Australia’s most advanced approach to early education for children from birth to age five. The Lifelong Learning Curriculum draws on the best models of early education, contemporary research and evidence informed practices such as Circle of Security, Abecedarian, and Project Based learning, and is based on what children learn, where they learn and how they learn. It aligns to Australia’s Early Years Learning Framework and offers a rich combination of play-based and intentional teaching experiences appropriate to each age group.

Healthy Beginnings

Babies aged 0-1 years

Your baby will start their lifelong learning journey with us in a safe, nurturing environment. Educators will:

  • Develop strong, positive bonds;
  • Encourage confidence to explore new surroundings;
  • Spark curiosity through sensory experiences; and
  • Establish helpful routines that support health and wellbeing.

Early Experiences

Toddlers aged 1-3 years

Your toddler will enjoy an exciting environment in which to explore and experiment as their confidence and social skills emerge. Educators will:

  • Introduce literacy and numeracy through learning games;
  • Support self expression through language skills; and 
  • Develop social and friendship skills in group settings.

School Readiness

Children aged 3-5 years

Your child will be given the very best start before they begin primary school at Aussie Kindies! Educators will:

  • Guide self-awareness, self-help skills and socialisation;
  • Investigate literacy, mathematics, science, technology and the arts;
  • Stimulate creativity, deeper thinking and problem solving; and
  • Prepare children for classroom environments through play-based preschool and kindergarten programs.

We offer a government approved kindergarten (also known as kinder or preschool in some states) program and long day care under one roof. This is not only more convenient for you, it helps children prepare for the transition to 'big school', develop a love of learning and make friends.


Our Program Inclusions Are What Set Us Apart

Here at Aussie Kindies, we know that all children are capable of realising their full potential if they are in the right environment. That is why we use project-based learning, appropriate technology and enrichment programs to spark the best experiences, and give children the very best start to their lifelong learning journey. These programs are included in the Lifelong Learning Curriculum, and are unique to Affinity Education centres.
