Meet Business Owner - Heidi Gulla

Providing a centre with heart and integrity that really values each and every child

Heidi decided to buy a MindChamps franchise in 2016 when she could not find a childcare centre that offered the level of quality that she was seeking for her own young children. When she heard our Founder CEO David Chiem speak at a business conference, she totally connected with the mission and philosophy behind the MindChamps brand.

In particular, I was drawn towards the values they embed into their practice that teach children to be confident, mindful and grateful, amongst many other things.  Above all, they also nurture a Champion Mindset and a love of learning in children. Knowing that all teachers receive up to 200 hours of ongoing training on top of their qualification helps to give that reassurance that my kids will be in great hands.

Nutritious Meals with a Farm To Fork Concept - Coming Soon!

We know that good nutrition is essential during the early years. To provide our children with healthy meals and to inculcate good eating habits, we offer a wholefoods menu with meals that are free of refined sugar and freshly prepared every day by our in-house cook.

We’ve also created a ‘playground’ filled with natural food sources such as native bee hives and fruit and vegetable gardens on our premises, where children grow and harvest the produce themselves. These foods are then prepared by the cook in our kitchen as part of our children’s meals.

Through this, not only are we doing our part to promote sustainability in our food system, but our children also get to participate in the farm-to-fork experience!
