Why KOR?

“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”

Why choose Kids on Rennie?

We are not just a long daycare centre. We aim to provide a home away from home, where children are loved, valued, nurtured and supported through their learning experiences.

Our philosophy is based on the belief that children are our community’s most precious treasure. We hold ourselves to high standards to ensure that each child, and each family, feels a strong connection to the Kids on Rennie community.


A centre created especially for 21st century learning

Our purpose built, new facility has been thoughtfully created having regard to best practices in early childhood education and care. Art spaces, outdoor areas, interactive learning tools and resources for sensory play all allow our children to make the most out of their day.

Relationships and connections

We believe that meaningful, warm and trusting relationships are critical for children and families to feel a sense of belonging and identity, and to ensuring the best education and care for children.

 We are dedicated to forging a strong affiliation with the local Lara and Greater Geelong community.

Nutrition and active play

All meals will be prepared on site in our modern kitchen and are included in our fee. Our substantial outdoor space will encourage children to use their sensory and motor skills in a natural setting.

We believe in holistic wellbeing

Children are our community’s most precious treasure. In addition to their safety and education, each child’s physical, cognitive, social, emotional and psychological wellbeing is at the core of everything we do.
