About Us

At Crayons Kindy we advocate learning through constructive play. We believe this is a time in your child’s life where fun, creativity, and freedom of expression are pivotal in their development. We will support them as they explore the world through a wide variety of play experiences that will lay the foundations for their future learning.

Dallas

Owner Operator

My name is Dallas and unlike the amazing team of staff at Crayons, I do not have a Diploma in Children’s services, I have a Diploma in Policing. After 17 years in the NSW Police Force and three beautiful children I decided a career change was calling me. I am so very excited to now be a part of the Crayons family, to be giving back to the community in a completely different way and to be surrounded by fantastic educators, children and families

Testimonials

Dallas and the team of educators put an incredible amount of care and enthusiasm into everything they do. We are grateful to have our daughter cared for by the team at Crayons who truly care about her development, embrace her talents, base activities around the children's interest and most of all always have lots of fun. The facilities are wonderful and engaging, with a variety of different activities on offer everyday. Crayons isn't a pre-school its a community which we are blessed to be a part of.

Katrina Bosco

Crayons is an amazing centre. Each and every member of staff cares so much about the children, making such an effort to know each child and cater for their individual needs. After having a somewhat shaky start at a different centre, our daughter has settled in so beautifully to Crayons. Thank you!

Melissa Warren

Crayons Kindy is an outstanding preschool! We've had experience with 3 centres so far, and the staff and owner here are absolute gems. The ladies are all so caring and my daughter doesn't want to leave when it's time to go home. Clean, new, friendly, experienced and educated staff. Seriously cannot find a better place in the area.

Ivana Uzelac

Our son started at Crayons Kindy this year and he’s never been happier! Every morning when he wakes up he asks where he’s going today? If the answer isn’t “Crayons”, he wants to know how many sleeps until he can go again! As a parent you know your child loves their preschool when they are happy to be dropped off in the morning and don’t want to go home when you arrive to pick them up! The teachers are amazing, I feel like I’m leaving him with a trusted family member when I drop him off and they are genuinely happy to see him! The teachers are always present and interacting with the kids and know exactly what my child has done all day. He’s learning so much in preparation for school next year but their learning is through play, which is so important at this age.

Melissa Vouris

We cannot believe the change in Harry since starting with you. He has gone from complaining of tummy aches constantly and being very temperamental and clingy to being the picture of a happy contented child. He is laughing, engaged, energetic, sleeping well, confident, really listening and being kind, helpful and super affectionate. It’s just such a great relief for Andrew and I, and all of our family and friends who know the journey we’ve been on. I really can’t thank you all enough. Thank you Dallas for creating a centre where I no longer feel stressed about what is happening during the day, rather I know that he absolutely LOVES being there and feels so safe and connected like he is with family. He comes home full of excitement and stories about what’s happened in the day. I really cannot thank you enough Dallas, it’s nothing short of a miracle in our minds
