Centre Manager - Community Kids Wodonga

“I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating environment in which to grow.”

I began my career in early childhood education and care over 20 years ago. I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services. When I was growing up, I always wanted to be a Primary School Teacher as I enjoyed working with children. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to work alongside children, families and educators today.  

I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating environment in which to grow. I believe allowing the child’s natural curiosity to direct their learning, and to promote respect for all things and all people. I am passionate about early education and the importance of the first 5 years of a child’s life. 

All childcare centres, including our centre, use the foundation of play-based learning to guide our experiences every day. With access to a range of age-appropriate learning resources, trained educators, and new experiences among friends, we set children up to thrive in an environment that is dedicated to learning.  

Children develop their curiosity, problem-solving, confidence and resilience at our centre, and we carefully plan play-based learning experiences around their interests and learning goals. Over time, you will see your child develop abilities such as language, motor movement, memory, concentration and social relationships all by partaking in these experiences - it's a truly incredible journey to witness! 

We have a small, close-knit team of educators who are dedicated and passionate about children and who strive to build strong relationships with families.  

Our team understands just how important your children are to you and we ensure we take our responsibilities seriously. Community Kids Early Education Centres has extensive policy and procedures in place to assist our team in protecting children in our care. 

We understand that starting at a new centre can be overwhelming and that is why from the very first enquiry, we make sure that we address all your questions one by one. We walk families through all the forms and administration that need to be done, this includes enrolment forms, Child Care Subsidy (CCS), explaining subsidies, government caps, centre schedules, our centre menu and more 

A quote I live by is to always “reach for the stars!!!”
