Meet the Centre Manager

Shoko Murata

My name is Shoko Murata and I am the Centre Manager at Community Kids Annerley. I came to study in Australia when I was 18 years old. I have been in the Early Learning and Education industry since 2003. I hold a Bachelor of Education – Early Childhood and I have started working as an Early Childhood Teacher in my centre 2005 and worked my way through to Centre Manager in 2008.  

My passion is to provide high quality care and education to all children and families with support of my wonderful team. My team are very multi-multicultural many of whom are long term. We are dedicated to our service to ensure the best quality of care is delivered to our families at all times.

We are a six room centre with children from six weeks to five years. As an inner city centre you might be surprised when you come into our centre, it is much bigger than it looks from the outside. We have large windows that let in natural light to our rooms and provide us the opportunity to use either fresh air or air conditioning.

Our educational programs for children are based on the Early Years Learning Framework. The framework forms the foundation that ensuring that children in all early childhood education and care settings experience quality teaching and learning.  It has a specific emphasis on play based learning and recognises the importance of communication and language (including numeracy and literacy) and social and emotional development.

Our centre provides a government approved funded Kindergarten Program in a dedicated classroom to prepare for the first year of school. The program is guided by the EYLF and the QKLG (Qld Kindergarten Learning Guidelines). It is delivered by a qualified Bachelor trained Teacher who has the necessary skills and experience to prepare your child for their first year of school.

Outside we have large leafy trees that provide dappled light and natural protection from the sun. Our babies and toddlers have their own yard with age appropriate equipment and shade. Our top yard is used for art and craft allowing the children a quiet place to contemplate and observe the birds. Our bottom yard has wide open spaces for running with a climbing fort, sandpit and equipment so our children can develop their gross motor skills.

I am committed to providing children and families a safe, welcoming, engaging and educational environment.

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“This is a FANTASTIC centre! I have had my 2 kids at Community Kids Annerley full time for over 2 years now and couldn’t be happier. The staff are so wonderful and kind and enthusiastic; written feedback and photos of your child at play are provided every day for the younger children and the Kindergarden program in the pre-prep class is really great and has contributed massively to preparing my son for starting school next year. I am constantly impressed with the variety of new resources the centre provides for the children and also love the large, comfortable air conditioned rooms and great big playground. I previously had my kids enrolled at at centre which I was not 100% happy with and was worried that changing centres may have been difficult for the kids, but I have been really glad every day since I we started at Community Kids. I would recommend this centre to anyone!”

“Our two children have been attending Community Kids Annerley since they were babies (around 8 months) and we have nothing but praise for the staff who work there. We are confident that our kids are given plenty of personal attention and are treated in a loving, caring way. We really could not be happier with the centre and would recommend it to others.”

“What a great daycare centre! After a terrible experience with a neighbouring daycare i moved my two boys to Community Kids Annerley & from first day of meeting until now 20 months later i am so very pleased with this centres care, management, ongoing enthusiasm, hygeine and team of carers/teachers whom are friendly & professional. The centre is rich in cultures. The manager is extremely helpful and accommodating. There is an abundance of resources and new technology, and the thing i like most, is that there is a nice feeling between all the caregivers, you can see they like their jobs. They also celebrate birthdays, xmas, easter, mothers & fathers day, which gives the parents the opportunity to meet and mingle. Im a very very happy parent.”

“My daughter has been going to CK Annerley since she was 6 months old and is now 2 and a half. I could not have found a better child care centre for my little girl. All the staff are friendly and helpful and they all genuinely care for each and every little tyke! In the 2 years my daughter has attended CK, she has grown and developed phenomenally!! With Physi Kids also attending the centre every week, this also gives her the opportunity to grow and develop her physical skills. I would highly recommend this child care centre to anyone looking for someone in the area :).”
