Ken Tubman Early Learning & Kinder Centre based in Maitland offers child care for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years within the Maitland and surrounding areas.
The centre was established just 2 years ago and yet is already in the running for an award at this years' Local Business Awards for Child Care Services.
There are 23 staff that assist working families who require permanent full-time care for their children.
Karina Niblock, Centre Director says,
"The Local Business Awards acknowledge and support small businesses like ours in the local area.
"We are very proud to be finalists again in the above category.
"For us, being a finalist formally acknowledges and recognises the hard work and dedication that our small community-focused business does to provide a unique service for the local community.
"The staff are extremely proud to be part of a local business that has received such a nomination. They go above and beyond in providing quality child care for local families so it's wonderful to be acknowledged in this way."
"We would like to sincerely thank our loyal community and families and all those involved who have voted for us." She added.
