Centre Manager - Community Kids Kadina
"Our Children are Our Future."
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.
Having worked in a number 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". 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.
I am a volunteer for the South Australian Ambulance Service and understand how important it is to provide a safe and secure environment where children could grow and develop.
At Community Kids Kadina Child Care and 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.
