The Middle Ridge child care centre was originally opened as Cuddle Ducks back in February 1995.
Noel and Linda purchased and renamed it Kate’s Place in May 1998.
In March 2018, Noel and Linda sold the centre to three of their children Kate, Justin and Anthony and they renamed the centre Kate’s Place Kindergarten & Early Learning. Kate operates the service and Justin and Anthony pursue other careers.
This centre provides care for children from 6 weeks through to 12 years old. Our child care centre is open from 6.30 am to 6:30 pm weekdays, 52 weeks a year. We understand how busy lifestyles can be for families, so we offer school pick-ups and drop offs from the centre. All children enrolled at our Middle Ridge child care centre receive their own welcome pack which includes Kate’s Place hat, t-shirt, and Bonkers Beat CDs and song book. We supply daily nutritious meals prepared in our kitchen onsite as part of our all inclusive child care service.
Our child care centre has been specifically designed to incorporate authentic grass, natural lighting and window / gates that allow children to see the outside world which all helps to stimulate learning possibilities.
