I love the Kingston Tiny Tots! My cousins daughter went there when she was in daycare and now my son goes there, this will be his second year now and not once have i had any major issues. Anytime I’ve ever had a problem, all the staff are easy to talk to and the situation gets sorted quickly. My son learns alot everyday and has so much fun, he does also learn that if he is naughty there is consequences, they are never out of line with discipline otherwise I’d be the first to say so. All in all, best daycare, staff are awesome and the programs are on point!
Meet Our Director
My name is Rebecca, but everyone calls me Bec, I am the centre director of Kingston Tiny Tots®. I have been in the childcare industry since 2001. In that time I have completed my Diploma and my Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services, I am currently studying my Bachelor of Early Education. I find working with children such a rewarding career. I believe one of the most important aspects of my position is to build positive relationships the children and their families too. As an educator I believe every child deserves the best early education experience which is why we provide a safe, loving and happy atmosphere for children to interact, discover and of course have fun.
Have loved Kingston Tiny Tots since my daughter attended 4 years ago and she still attends now for before an after school car and vacation care.
I work at another local centre but will not move my daughter as she loves the staff there ❤

We offer Japanese lessons for free every Friday morning. One of our educators is from Japan and teachers the children about their culture, food, language and art. The children immerse themselves into the language and develop a lifelong knowledge on a beautiful culture within the world. Miss Nori is our Japanese teacher, and she has a passion for children, education and providing children with new and exciting experiences.
Every Monday we have an educator come to visit us to teach us music. Miss Hannah is a qualified music educator and loves sharing her passion with the children. She teaches them basic skills on a guitar and sings lots of fun songs with them. The children really enjoy these lessons, and it gives them the opportunity to express themselves in music.
