The Kip McGrath centre in Holdfast Bay has been owned and operated by Annie Harvey since early 2011. Annie has a primary school background and received her teaching qualifications at Flinders University. Prior to training as a primary teacher, she was an ESL teacher in Australia, the UK and Spain and lectured in literacy and numeracy at TAFE in South Australia and the University of Bath in the UK.

"Teaching children is my vocation and I am privileged to love what I do for a living. I am excited by the opportunity to make a tangible difference to children in my local community; I love what I call the 'light bulb moments' on children's faces when they grasp a new concept."

Annie firmly believes that all children have the right to an education and can reach their full potential provided that they are supported in their learning. This belief led her to the Kip McGrath education system, designed by trained and experienced educators.

Under the Kip McGrath system, children's needs are properly assessed and matched to individual programs that meet those needs. Annie, Mark and their team receive extensive and ongoing training in the system, which has been continuously developed over more than 30 years and now combines the latest interactive technology with manual activities to engage children and promote active learning.

KMEC Holdfast Bay is always at the cutting edge of the new technology developments and has piloted all of the new online management and teaching programs. The centre is one of the largest and most successful in Australia.
