A Team Who Never Stop Learning

Lead by our manager Lilly Vales, the team at Kids Cove Albany believe; in order to learn, children need to feel happy, safe and secure, thus be surrounded by supportive, caring and respectful teachers.

Lilly, who has 20 years of extensive knowledge and experience in child learning is profoundly conversant with various teaching approaches and she incorporates this strength in the centre’s teaching programmes.

Our manager has hobbies in singing, dancing, cars and teaching through music.

In Lilly’s own words,

“her biggest strength is to establish open and reciprocal long-term relationships with people everywhere.”

We also deeply understand that our educators are the key element in delivering the Centre philosophy and care/learning experiences for our children.

We see the children for the unique gifts and love that they already are. Working together with our parents, we respect and encourage the uniqueness of each child.

At Kids Cove, we operate with 80% + qualified staff and a high child to teacher ratio to make sure that our philosophy and learning programmes are always effectively implemented.
