Family owned and operated

Flying Start is a local family-owned and operated service dedicated to providing the best, most honest care to families in and around Kingscliff.

Having raised two children of our own, we understand the importance of providing a safe and positive environment for children to grow as individuals and part of our community. This is why we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality standard of care and education possible.

Flying Start welcomes new families with open arms and minds and we’re looking forward to meeting you and your family soon.

Our Story

2007: With qualifications in exercise science and 20 years of sports management experience at a national and international level, we created our Mad Sports Activity Program. Having young children of our own at the time, we introduced the program to the Kingscliff community.

2010: Three years later, we began delivering outside school hours care (OSHC) to the local community with before and after school programs that helped to promote active learning and growth through play.

2020: For a decade, the Flying Start team worked closely with families in and around Kingscliff from St Anthony’s Primary School grounds, getting to know their children’s needs and learning styles.

2021: With plenty of experience in the local community behind us, we introduced our transition to school Preschool Program. Later the same year, we expanded our Mad Sports OSHC program to Kingscliff Public School to get more children involved with active learning and play.
