Welcome to Community Kids Kadina, My name is Jodi Panozzo, let me tell you a bit about myself…
I first began my career in early childhood as a 14 year old volunteer cleaning toys and scrubbing walls. Now, 25 years later I am the proud Centre Manager of Community Kids Kadina Early Education Centre. I have been working with Community Kids Kadina since our centre opened in 2006.
I hold a Diploma in Community Services (Child Care), Diploma of Leadership and Management, Certificate in Infant Mental Health, Certificate II in Medical First Aid, and am currently studying my Certificate IV in Health Care.
As mother of three beautiful children, I can empathise with parents on a variety of levels. I understand how important it is for families and educators to work together to deliver the best possible care for all children that attend the centre and how important it is for families to feel at home within the centre.
Having worked in a variety of centres over the years, I have developed an understanding of child development, have experience working with children with additional needs and have devised many strategies to effectively manage a successful early education centre that is delightfully ‘Child Focused ’.
I am a volunteer for the South Australian Ambulance Service and understand how important it is to provide a safe and secure environment for our children to grow and develop within.
I am a strong believer that ‘Our Children are Our Future’, therefore at Community Kids Kadina Early Education Centre our team is driven to educate our children and help them grow into the best little people they can be with a focus on sustainability and caring for our environment, as they are the key to building our future.
I am extremely proud to run our beautiful 80 place centre and am lucky to be supported by a fantastic team of 17 amazing child care professionals.
Please feel free to pop and have a look around our beautiful centre, meet myself and our fantastic team, and let us know how we can work together to create the best learning opportunity for your children and family.

Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centre:
“I have had no problems with the care of both of my children. My second child is currently attending childcare and has built a repore with his carer about what activities he did on the weekend. I also find my child will eat quite well and try new foods. Communication is quite good also.”
“Couldn’t ask for a better daycare. Staff are very friendly and are willing to help you in anyway they can. My little girl loves going there!”
“Very happy with the communication by the staff. Everybody is always friendly and very helpful. Would highly recommend Community Kids centre.”
