    Our staff consist of fully qualified and registered school teachers who deliver government accredited Pre Prep and Kindergarten programs in alignment with providing all the foundations for the Australian National School Curriculum. This enhances your child’s transition to their schooling years and helps create successful outcomes in all realms of learning.

    We look forward to getting to know you and your child whilst supporting and guiding your child’s development and learning during their early years.

    Karen Williams

    Owner Of Smarter Kids; Childcare expert; Educator; Mother

    With over twenty years’ practical experience in childcare combined with a Masters of Education and Psychology, Karen is a demonstrated expert in child behaviour, child development and effective parenting techniques. As a mother herself she is passionate about recognising meaningful and holistic ways to nurture and educate our children, identifying and catering to individual learning styles and needs.

    It is rare these days to find an early childcare centre that is not operating under a corporate business model and profit motive. Karen’s intent is, and has always been, to create family-centred childcare environments that benefit from her practical level of knowledge and understanding.

    Karen’s love of children has expanded her experience into the development of one of Australia’s leading independent primary schools here on the Gold Coast, known as Queensland Independent College. As founder and benefactor initially in 2009, through to School Principal and now Head of School, Karen has acquired important insight into the most effective ways to facilitate children’s learning and development. This understanding expands her knowledge now across a broad spectrum of educational progression from birth to completion of the primary schooling process.

    Karen’s dedication to children’s education motivates her to continually undertake personal and professional development, upskill her learning and acquire knowledge from all realms, including overseas markets.
