Our Centre


Welcome to LEAD childcare Tingalpa.

I would like to introduce myself Katrina Bira as the centre manager of LEAD childcare Tingalpa

I have worked in childcare for over ten years and enjoy every part of childcare, children are the most important part of my position and always come first.

Our service is located in the heart of Tingalpa offering families easy drop off on the way to the city or public transport. We offer care for children from six weeks of age in our warm, nurturing nursery right up to 12 years. We offer a Government Approved Queensland Kindergarten Program which is delivered by a qualified Early Childhood Teacher. Our service has five spacious rooms with qualified, experienced and highly skilled educators.  We also offer Before and After School Care and Vacation Care during school holidays.

We have a qualified team of early childhood professionals within each room who use an emergent curriculum which is child led. Our practices are guided by the National Quality Framework, Early Years Learning Framework, Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and My Time Our Place. We have been through the Assessment and Ratings process conducted by the Office of Early Childhood and received an overall rating of “Meeting” National Quality Standards.

Our outdoor environment offers a large natural space with areas built to promote exploration and investigation. The children are growing vegetables in the garden that they harvest and then use for their lunches. The sandpit and rock garden offer plenty of opportunity to explore and relax. To promote sustainable practices  the children are learning to care for the environment.

Please contact our service to arrange an appointment to ensure we have the time to showcase the wonderful learning we have to offer here at LEAD Tingalpa.

We would love for you to join our LEAD family.

Katrina and the Tingalpa team


"My children enjoy the atmosphere. I love that they have a lot of different themes. My sons speech has improved a lot. The educators are always available to give me an update on my children's day when I pick them up. Storypark is also a great way to see what they have been doing through the day."
