Since establishing Key to Kindy in 2008, Kirsten has helped 1000's of parents transition their little ones to Kindergarten.
Kirsten's mission is simple - give real, practical advice to parents on how they can best support the developmental needs of their children so they are as ready as possible to take on Kindergarten.
That mission has organically grown to working with Early Childhood Educators get their messages across to parents and up-skill their staff when designing School Readiness programs and communicating with parents.
Years of experience, engaging delivery and a personally tailored approach has seen our Early Childhood Centres and schools incorporate Key to Kindy, year after year, into their curriculum.
