A motorcyclist died after allegedly fleeing police last week. Police intercepted a motorcycle on Kings Road, Kings Park shortly before 11am last Thursday, but as they approached the bike on foot it sped off in a southerly direction. Police did not pursue the motorcycle. They later found the bike and rider near the intersection of McLeod Road. It is believed the male rider lost control of the motorcycle and struck a pole.

Centre with a difference Sydenham has a new childcare centre. Kids Kingdom Learning opened its doors last month and staff are excited about what the future holds. Early childhood consultant Katrina Kutschker said that while the centre is still young, it’s already developing its own identity. “We opened about four weeks ago and it really is a beautiful centre, newly refurbished. “We went on our first field trip the other day to Scienceworks, which is something we’ll look to do a lot more going forward.” She said management had established a unique plan to cater for the entire family.

“We’re one of the few centres in the area to offer a bus service to drop off and pick up the children because we know most people using our service are incredibly busy,” she said. “We also do this thing called date night where we babysit kids so parents can go out and enjoy a nice work/life balance.” The centre already has a solid client base, however Ms Kutschker said there’s room for more. “If anyone is interested they can give us a call or check us out online and we can organise a free tour.” Details: 8382 2452
