Meet our Centre Director

Frida Caris

Hi, I'm Frida, and I am an Early Childhood Teacher and Centre Director with over 23 years of experience in the sector. During this time, I have worked with all age groups and across various communities in Sydney.

I am extremely passionate about curriculum construction and creating beautiful centre environments. I love collaborating with educators, mentoring, and helping them to grow and reach their full potential, and I treasure the relationships I build with children and their families.


All our programs at Clemton Park Early Education and Care are based on children’s strengths, knowledge, interests, concepts, and cultural backgrounds. The National Quality Framework stipulates that learning occurs best through play-based experiences.

Your child will enjoy;

  • Interesting and engaging experiences providing opportunity for inquiry, exploration, discovery and problem-solving
  • Active engagement with people, objects and representations
  • Experiences and provocations based on children’s emerging concepts and thinking
  • Rich play experiences by sourcing materials and creating environments which engage children’s sense of curiosity, wonder and investigation
  • Opportunities for the development of a wide range of skill areas: social, emotional, cognitive, creative and physical

Extensive early childhood research shows that for children under the age of five years, play provides the best vehicle for learning. Children are more likely to persist at something in which they are interested in and play-based learning provides a great context for acknowledging children’s interests.

We also engage in learning beyond the classroom. All children participate in frequent local excursions and begin to see themselves as active and contributory community members.

Our school readiness program begins from the moment children enter our centre. Building children’s confidence, strong sense of self, conflict resolution skills, creativity and collaboration are part of our program from the start.

Your child will have many opportunities to engage with literacy and numeracy. This will also be scaffolded and extended upon. In the final preschool years, we run a dedicated Transition to School Program for children and their families. This program is delivered by Early Childhood Teachers in consultation with local primary schools and will extend children’s social and emotional skills to build sound foundations for primary school.

Children will build their confidence and resilience levels, become accustomed with school routines and lunchboxes, learn how to work in teams, develop independence and much more.

As the centre is located within the grounds of Clemton Park Public School, we engage in reciprocal visits across the year which also supports children’s transition into formal schooling.

For more information about our Transition to School Program, please enquire with our Centre Manager and Early Childhood Teachers based in the preschool rooms.
