Hello, my name is Taruna, I am the Approved provider/Owner. I have my Masters in Science and a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and care. I am also Quality Assurance Auditor and worked in several industries to improve the process. I love being with children and nurturing them with love and affection, which is the foundation of Kidopia.
My philosophy is that if we believe in our children, always support them and love them, then they will grow into confident and responsible adults.

My name is Manoshi and I am the room leader of the preschool room Milkyway.

I hold a diploma in children’s services with 3 years of experience. As an early childhood educator, I believe in a holistic approach where educators work alongside each other as well as children and families to create an inclusive environment.

The children's interests often lead us to our own adventure that have a life of their own and is only limited by their imagination.
