Come and see us, we'd love to meet you.
Our TOT SPOTZ is for babies only.
Babies are born ready to learn.
We know that learning starts before a child is born so by the time they come childcare, their learning processes are already underway.
We also know that babies and young children learn best when they have warm, engaging and responsive relationships with carers so our job is to make sure that we create stimulating and engaging environments to keep babies learning so they can develop key milestone stages of early growth.
Babies & Nursery Program
6 weeks - 2 years
2 - 3 years
MINI SPOTZ is our junior toddler program.
During a child's toddler years, their emotional, social, physical and cognitive skills take a giant leap forward.
Language is developed, toddlers start to speak with 2 - 3 words and work their way up to short sentences. Thinking is developed as they start to understand concepts like time and opposites. Social skills come into focus as the toddler starts to enjoy playing with others and their sense of independence starts to blossom. It's a time of energy, movement and curiosity.
Our MINI SPOTZ program is about inspiration, discovery and preparation to give toddlers a solid foundation before moving into the Pre-School stage.
Meet Justine Thomas
DIRECTOR, KIDZSPOT ERSKINE PARK
My name is Justine and I am the Director of KIDZSPOT Dilga and Lima in Erskine Park.
I began my journey in childcare in 2008, and went on to complete my Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2015. During my career in childcare, I have worked across all age groups, spending most of my time with the preschoolers aged 3-5 years.
My main aim is to provide a caring and loving educational experience for all children making sure each child feels a sense of belonging when in our environment. Having a child start school is a huge milestone not only for the child but also their families - I believe it is our job, as Early Childhood Educators, to help shape and teach all children working in collaboration with families.
Our School Readiness Program is comprehensive and allows educators to teach children core foundational skills from literacy, numeracy and concepts to self-help skills. This gives children and families the information and knowledge making sure each child has the best support possible giving them the best head start in their schooling.
I am very passionate about my job as an Early Childhood Educator and love supporting, teaching and guiding each and every child along their journey in the first few years.
Meet Isabelle Desmond
CENTRE MANAGER, KIDZSPOT DILGA
Hello! I’m Isabelle Desmond, the Centre Manager at KIDZSPOT Dilga in Erskine Park.
I knew that Early Childhood Education was exactly what I wanted to do from a very young age. I’ve always had a strong connection with young children so I couldn’t imagine a better way to turn my passion into a career.
The first 5 years of a child’s life are crucial in building the foundation for their future. I love being able watch children grow and develop knowing that my work will have an immense impact on the people they will grow into mentally, emotionally and physically. I couldn’t imagine a more fulfilling vocation.
As an experienced Educator, my focus has always been to support and enlighten young impressionable minds. I am a strong believer that each child learns at their own pace and that we must adapt our learning strategies to match each child’s individual needs. I say lets let them be little, lets fill their hearts with laughter, help them grow, nurture their sense of wonder and inspire them to learn in every way they can!
At KIDZSPOT Dilga, our focus is to build on play-based learning programs that appeal to a child’s natural curiosity and their need to engage in experiences as they make sense of the world around them.
As a Centre Manager, my role is to support and inspire my team each and every day so they have the knowledge and skills to support and inspire the children in our care. We’re here to thrive and grow, and provide our community with excellent care for our youngest children.
If you are looking for care for a baby or junior toddler in or around Erskine Park, please come and meet us.

A typical day
AT KIDZSPOT we follow a structured, daily routine so things run as smoothly as possible all of the time. Routine sets healthy boundaries which is so important for a child's sense of security and stability in the world. And it makes life easier for all of us.
We're super organised, efficient and methodical in what we do so everyone knows what to do and what to expect all day every day.
The first few weeks
The first few weeks are really important for you, for your child and for us because we’ll be getting to know each other and working on helping your child adjust to their new environment.
Some children adapt to a new environment faster than others; age is a factor, whether a child has been at another centre before or whether it’s their first, also play a part.
The first few weeks are all about ensuring your child feels safe and comfortable. We'll focus on building bonds as we slowly introduce new routines.
Food & Nutrition
Our Service provides up to 5 meals a day from breakfast to late afternoon snacks.
All our meals are professionally prepared by experts in kids nutrition and delivered to our Centres. The menus are gourmet and offer our kids healthy and fun mealtime options. All our Centres are nut and egg free, and our menus cater for vegetarians as well as cultural-based requirements.
Food is a part of our education. Educators will encourage your child to learn about food, where it comes from and why eating healthy makes us feel good and why good nutrition is essential for growing bodies.
