Fatima Pajmakoski

  -  

Owner/Operator

As a Mum of three little ones, I understand first hand, how stressful and overwhelming the process of selecting quality childcare can be. Your childcare providers really do become a valued part of your family support network.

So, that is why I have ensured that every one of our centres and their employees, all embrace my ethos of to Love, Nurture and Educate – as these are the primary principles that I have looked for when sending my own children to childcare.

I have spent a lot of time with my executive staff and industry leaders, developing new and innovative ways of incorporating these key stone principles into all facets of our centres’ child development and educational programs.

I am very excited and truly proud to be offering high-end professional early childhood education to the busy families of our local inner city community and I look forward to working with families to make Little Kingdom part of their kingdom.

See you soon.
