    Childcare Centre Serving the Toongabbie Area

    Our warm and friendly kindergarten is managed by Gae and Rob de Gooyer. Hopskotch Kindergarten combines two childcare centres, Hopskotch Kindergarten in Schofields and the Maldon Kindergarten in Toongabbie. The centres came together by a mutual commitment to the provision of high-quality early learning services in Western Sydney. By coming together under the same name, each can increase their profile and gain recognition for their outstanding work within the community.

    Gae de Gooyer

    Gae is a primary school teacher with over 30 years’ experience in the education of young children. Gae has been running quality children’s services since 2001 and is hugely passionate about the education of the children within her care. Gae’s innovative approach keeps her applied knowledge of education and programing years ahead of the field. 

    Rob de Gooyer

    Rob is known to the children as ‘Bob the Builder’. He is our leading maintenance man, gardening expert, I.T. consultant and WH&S specialist. Rob has a great way with the children and is able to support fellow staff as they continue to add to and refine their knowledge.

    Gae and Rob are passionate about the continual improvement of our staff and remain up to date with the latest research in early childhood development. The pair is supported by a team of university-trained teachers and diploma-trained educators, many of which have been working together for several years.
