Our Story

The service is run by Owner/Director – Mel Reid, who is the Approved Provider.

The centre was established in 1993 and operated as “Glen Dhu Play Centre” providing a Play Centre and Playgroup program for children 3-5 years. In 2001, the centre was purchased by Mel Reid who continued to operate the centre under a Play Centre Format.

In February 2002, the centre was renamed “The Glen Dhu Child Care Centre” with the purpose of providing full-time care for children 2-7 years.

In January 2008, we expanded our centre to include a new room to accommodate children under 12 months old, and a new name change saw the centre being called “Glen Dhu Children’s Services”. A grand opening was held in 2009.

In January 2014, we embraced the new National Quality Framework ratio regulations and employed a highly qualified Early Childhood Teacher, and re-established our Early Learning Program for children 3-5. This program focuses on providing children with the knowledge and skills to support an ease their transition to the next stage of their learning, Kindergarten.

In 2016, our service was assessed by the national assessment and rating system, and we are very proud to announce that we were assessed at the highest level of “Exceeding National Quality Standards”. This rating gives us a 3-year license as an Educational and Care Service. A fantastic effort by my amazing team of educators.
