Little Doves Takes Shape

Behind protective screens on the Albany Highway, a little masterpiece is taking shape.

Kristin Little Doves is the latest addition to the Kristin family. It is a purpose-built, high-quality full-service child care/development facility that will offer care for 0-4 year olds.

It is being developed and managed by Kristin, so will be underpinned by the shared beliefs and vision of the Kristin School community, including personalised service, specialised training and a secure, protected and tranquil environment. It will feature the vision, integrity and love that are hallmarks of the Kristin experience.

Junior School Principal Diana Patchett, who is leading the overall project, expects Little Doves to be something very special architecturally. The modern single-level development will feature sliding doors across an entire wall that will open onto a large playground area. The centre and its grounds will outlook onto mature trees with unique play features and maximum use of sun, shade and climate opportunities. For parents, there will be exclusive parking offering easy transfer from car to the centre. The playground landscaping will be extensive, including Kristin Dads working on creating eco friendly, custom built, pint sized wooden toys for the playground.

While the Little Doves playground will be a bit of a secret garden, not so secret will be the commitment of the team at Little Doves to being highly-skilled professionals who will be passionate about providing high-quality care and a strong educational start to life for your child. They will work closely with families to develop goals for children.

Kristin Little Doves will encourage children to be lifelong learners from the earliest age and as such it will provide a premier environment filled with learning opportunities. While there are a variety of early learning centres available on the North Shore, the quality of the facilities and the learning offered at Little Doves will be exceptional. Initially Little Doves will open with room for about 25 children, but this will rise to a facility for about 75 children.
