Aspire Kalkallo Childcare Centre

We are excited to open our Aspire Early Education and Kindergarten Kalkallo centre to families and the community. Our Kalkallo centre is conveniently located next to the local primary school, reserve and is a 6 min drive to the nearest train station. Our Kalkallo centre has 9 spacious rooms that support children through their entire learning journey, catering for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years old. Our service is a state-of-the-art facility with beautiful indoor and outdoor environments for children to learn and grow in.

With a homely vibe and plenty of room to explore, children will thrive within our play-based programs. We believe that every child deserves a quality education, and that their individual talents deserve to be recognised. We strive to help nurture and cultivate children’s sense of identity, belonging and self confidence that will ease the transition into school and allow them to flourish in life.

We love the opportunity to bring our Aspire community together with our local community, to celebrate the diversity of our children and families to create a sense of belonging for everyone.  By understanding children in the context of their families and community, we can provide meaningful and purposeful opportunities and experiences that relate to their world.

Meet the Centre Manager for Kalkallo

My name is Shamona Verma. I hold a bachelor’s Degree in Education and Diploma in Children's Services. I have joined Aspire as the Service Manager for Aspire Kalkallo. I am a proud mother of two handsome boys and outside work, I like to read, practice yoga and pour candles. My current reading interests are ‘It Is Possible’ by Fiona Redding and ‘The Light We Carry’ Michelle Obama.

I am passionate about educating children, hence choosing education as my calling. During my teaching career overseas, I got the chance to work with various age groups, but early education has always been my greatest interest. How rewarding it is to see children grow into holistically developed young individuals and how satisfying it is to know that I’ve been a part in their development!

Greatly inspired by Reggio Emilia approach, I advocate providing stimulating but open-ended learning environments and putting children in the driver's seat and watching them steer through the learning experiences in their own unique way. I am thrilled to be a part of the Aspire Family and look forward to meeting with you and your little ones!

My one year old loves being here and his Educators are very helpful and caring , my son stopped his milk feeds during the day after coming here because he's eating so well in the centre as opposite to home. I'm so thankful to all the staff and Management team at Aspire Kalkallo for helping my child in easy transitioning.
