Cool Bananas is a privately owned centre. Hello, my name is Sharyn Latham-Callcott and I’m a wife, mother of three daughters aged 13, 11 and 8, and the owner of Cool Bananas Childcare & Preschool. We have lived locally in Kellyville for 12 years.
Prior to being a mum, I obtained a Bachelor of Business, and was a Certified Practising Accountant. I held varied professional finance roles in Accounting, Education and Public Relations sectors. Whilst I have always had strong business skills, my passion however, has been my love of children, and I’ve always wanted to be involved in nurturing children to learn, grow and develop.
After my first daughter was born 13 years ago, I was fortunate to be a stay-at-home mum. Even so, all three of my daughters attended childcare for 2 days per week from the age of 2½, as I felt it provided invaluable experiences of socialisation and learning that are so important in a child’s formative years before school, providing experiences that I couldn’t offer at home.
I remember being extremely fastidious and particular, in making the very important decision of which childcare centre to send my girls. I have very high standards about quality childcare and the professionalism and care shown to both children and their families. Those same high standards were met when choosing to acquire this Centre.
I can honestly say, that I would be very excited to enrol my daughters in such a fabulous centre, and I’m extremely proud and delighted to be the owner of Cool Bananas Childcare and Preschool!
