Our Story

Choosing the right centre to care for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

Kuddles has been in the childcare industry for almost 2 decades. We enjoy a well deserved reputation for the operation of a premier, leading edge childcare centre.

The original concept for Kuddles programs, curriculum and training has been developed over the past decade exclusively by its founder through exhaustive trials and hands-on experience.

We believe learning starts at the infant stage and thus our baby classes were created based on a European model of development with age-appropriate stimulation, sensory, as well as gross and fine motor exercises. Our baby classes made us one of the first centres to provide play and learn activities for parents and babies.

The appeal of the baby classes was so broad that Kuddles added new programs in order to continue leading children on the path of learning and families on the path of friendship, support and community.

Our approach is to constantly enhance our programs through ongoing development and continual strengthening of the quality of relationships that exist between staff, children and parents. We believe that a three-way partnership is the key to happy children and peace of mind for parents.

I invite you to come to any of our centres to meet our team and to see what we do. The moment you walk in you will know it is a very special place.

What Parents Say

We strive to establishing quality relationships between staff, children and parents. We believe that a three-way partnership is the key to happy children and peace of mind for parents.

"Kuddles is much more than a daycare, it really becomes a significant part of your child's journey. I have never felt anything but 100% confident in the staff and environment to provide my daughter with an encouraging, safe, and inclusive experience. They are constantly coming up with new activities and methods to help every child grow at their own pace. It is so reassuring to know that when you leave your child with the Kuddles team, they are playing and learning in a beautiful facility, eating healthy food, and completely surrounded by an exceptionally caring staff."

"Hu Yan and I have been impressed with Kuddles from the day we were offered a tour by owner Madeleine. The indoor space has a great feel, bright and welcoming and is very well stocked with well chosen toys and and accessories. The secure grounds are spacious and pleasant with large well-equipped playground areas, and the daycare is just a short walk from Hugo Ray park. Madeleine herself is great, a warm, friendly and genuine person. The activities and meals are all well thought out. These factors were enough to decide us in favour of Kuddles and it was a great choice. The staff is excellent. We've met most of them by now and they are all warm, friendly and professional. Most important has been our daughter's response. It didn't take her long to feel comfortable. At the end of each day she's happy and relaxed (as she appears throughout the day in the regular photo updates Kuddles staff provide), and it's been great for her development. Her vocabulary has grown rapidly since starting at Kuddles. Overall we could not be happier."
