Welcome to Bambino’s Kindergarten Glenfield!
We are open between 6:30am and 6:00pm for children from birth to 6 years. Our childcare centre provides nappies as well as nutritious meals for the children including breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and a late snack. Our hot meals are served daily and cater to the needs of all children’s dietary requirements including Halal meals. We place an emphasis on encouraging healthy eating habits and promote positive attitudes towards food to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
Our professional, dedicated, and enthusiastic staff includes a Bachelor-qualified teacher and together the team advocate the care, nurturing and education of children within their care and within the wider community.
Our education program utilises the Early Years Learning Framework. This, in tandem with our School Readiness program, ensures that your child will be equipped with the skills necessary to succeed in junior school.
Our centre proudly offers a preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more, your child will become school ready.
We believe that all children should be treated equally and respected with regard to their race, culture, gender, religion, socio-economic background, or additional needs. We respect every family’s values and will seek their involvement with our services, so we encourage open communication between parents and our childcare centre in Glenfield.
We look forward to partnering with you and your family to provide information, support, and high-quality early education and care in your child’s formative years. Contact our Family Support Team to start your journey today.

Meet the Centre Manager
My career in the Early Childhood sector began in 1997. I began my journey with Bambino’s Kindergarten Glenfield in 2016. I hold a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood).
I love being able to be able to positively impact a child’s life creating the best possible start to their lifelong education and prepare them for the transition to school. If a child cannot learn in the way we teach, we must teach in a way the child can learn’ we need to adapt to the children we are teaching and not teach the children we wish we had, every child is unique and we need to adapt to this.
The team at Bambino’s Kindergarten Glenfield have been handpicked for their unique skills and passion for education. The educators are supportive and create a special bond with not only the children but the families also. The program we offer is devised by the room staff with creativity and purpose in mind, to allow the children to develop and grow as they learn.
Being able to see the children grow and develop as their skills refine and they recognise they are able to achieve great things as they learn through play and are inspired to learn through our questioning, provocations and the dispositions we promote in the learning experiences we provide.
My team is highly educated, all staff members hold a minimum Certificate III and all of these team members are studying for their Diploma in Children’s Services. We are a smaller service, that provides all the team members with the ability to get to know all the children and families within the service. We seek opportunities to involve ourselves in the community and the activities and events that occur within the local area. We seek valuable input from the families about what they would like to see in the centre, from activities and food to incursions, and events.
The relationship with families are extremely important, they are the lifeblood of the centre and hold the key to valuable information about their children. Not only do the children need to be comfortable and confident in the centre so do the families as they entrust their precious little ones to us. When the families and children come to Bambinos Kindergarten Glenfield, they are not just enrolling in our service they are joining our family.
Our families love Bambino's Glenfield

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect from a centre tour?
A centre tour is a convenient way to experience the centre of your choice and meet with our qualified educators at a time suitable to your family schedule. Bambino’s also offers the virtual tour option in all our centres. Click here to book a tour online.
On the day of the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to observe practices and interactions within the centre environment. You’ll be able to see all the rooms and playgrounds, ask the team members any questions you have in mind, and get all the information you need to make the best decision for your child.
Do I have to be on a waitlist?
Bambino’s Family Support team will add your child’s name to our waitlist if one of our centres is currently full in your child’s age group. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available.
We also do monthly check-ins to review the availability, and you will receive a text message confirming if you’re still happy to remain on the waitlist each month. If you would like to get an update at any point, you’re welcome to reach out on our Web Chat or give us a call.
Our Family Support team can also help you find more G8 early learning centres near you, with the same offerings at the Bambino’s centre you are interested in that have immediate availability.
What can I do to help my child prepare for starting care?
It’s common for a child to experience separation anxiety when they first start child care. When you’re getting ready to start child care, you can help your child overcome anxieties by visiting the child care centre together for a Stay and Play session, and easing into new routines at home.

What should I pack my child for their first day?
Most of our Bambino’s child care and early education centres offer the following:
- Nappies and wipes
- Sunscreen and hats
- Nutritious meals prepared by our in-house cook
Some centres also provide sheets and formula, so you may not need to remember to pack them.
For nursery children, be sure to bring: nappy rash cream, dummies, bottles and teats, comfort toys or blankets, three spare outfits, spare socks and a plastic bag for wet clothes.
For toddlers and preschool or kindergarten-aged children, it’s best to bring: spare underwear, water bottle or sippy cup, sun hat, closed-toe shoes, two spare outfits, spare socks and a plastic bag for wet clothes.
Plus anything else your individual child may need, such as breast milk, a sleeping bag, a comforter or medication.
It’s best to speak to your centre of choice for a full list of everything included.
How do I get updates on my child's day?
Bambino’s uses Xplor Home as our family communication app. It is the best and easiest way to keep track of your child’s day. After you enrol your child with the centre, you can utilise Xplor Home to book child care days, manage your account, receive the photographs that capture your child’s learning, learn about your child’s progress, as well as keep up-to-date with upcoming centre events and important information.
What if my child gets sick?
If your child shows signs of an infectious illness when they arrive at the centre or becomes sick during the day, you may be notified that you need to make alternative arrangements or pick up your child from the centre, and keep them home until they are no longer infectious. While we understand that this can be inconvenient, Bambino’s is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.
Under the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), families are allowed 42 absence days per child, per financial year. These can be taken for any reason, including public holidays and when children are sick, without the need for families to provide documentation.
