Centre Manager - Community Kids St Helens Park

“There’s nothing more rewarding than watching a child learn with passion and wonder.”

My early childhood career started in 2008 and I started working at Community Kids St Helens Park in 2018 as the centre manager. I have a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care.
From a young age I knew I wanted to work with children. When I started in the sector that this was the right career path for me. It is so rewarding being able to help and teach children every day and be apart of their own journey. 

The early stages of a child’s life are fundamental, I believe learning is interwoven through physical, social/emotional, cognitive and communication. I believe when a learning environment is an extension of the children’s home this provides the children with a sense of security. 

There’s nothing more rewarding than watching a child learn with passion and wonder. If we can provide opportunities for children to learn and encourage them to try, we are giving them the stepping stones for success.

Early childhood education can help your child make friends, develop independence and learn new routines. It also supports their transition to school. 

We have long-serving, multicultural team members who reflect our local community. Many have been with the centre over 5 years. Our centre is very family orientated. We ensure we build strong relationships with all families at our service. With help from our families, we can ensure we all have the children's best interest each day. Communication is key.

We look forward to welcoming you to our centre and showing you everything we have to offer.
