Meet the Centre Manager – Gibb Nannar

I have been working in the early education sector since 2012. From the start, I have enjoyed building long-lasting relationships with families.

I have completed a Diploma in Children’s Services and am most passionate about watching the children grow. I constantly learn new things from them. Our centre is homely, because of this we really understand the children and we can tell straight away when they may be unwell. We also have great relationships with the families, giving them that ease when leaving their child with us for the day.

Our educator team are open-minded and listen to the parent’s ideas, they always aim to build good relationships with our families. All our staff have recently gone through lots of great training giving them a better understanding of children.

We look forward to meeting your family!

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“I have been so happy with care that both you and your staff have lavished on Lola since she began with Kinder Haven at the tender age of 5 months. She has grown so fond of the carers at the centre and has formed an attachment with so many of you that is genuinely reciprocated. The flexibility and support you have effortlessly provided us recently helped us enormously to get Lola back on her feet and back with friends following her accident and we can’t thank you enough for that. Not only did your team take the time to help Lola get back on her feet but also assisted with toilet training, which was done in a week! Now that Lola has stepped up and into the Pre School room, I was so impressed to find that Carmen’s approach to education is very individual and given that Lola is advanced for her age, that her experience in this room will maximise her potential. I sing your praises to anyone who asks and would happily recommend this centre. We will truly be very sad to say goodbye when Lola finally goes to school in another two years time.”

Our daughter started at Kinder Haven Balgowlah when she was seven months old and has now been there for just over a year.  Even though she only attends once a week, she has clearly built up a strong relationship with many of the regular staff.  She is always excited when we ask her if she wants to go to see Miss Gibb, Miss Alex or Miss Jo and she readily runs to them when we arrive before turning to ‘dismiss’ me with a kiss and a wave.  It is great to read the daily reports about what the children have been up to and we even send these to the grandparents overseas!  It is always interesting to hear Emily come out with a new skill or word that she must have learnt at daycare and we would have no hesitation in recommending Kinder Haven Balgowlah to any friends requiring daycare for their children.”

“I just wanted to acknowledge that I appreciate all the information you’ve shared with this calendar and the newsletter the other day. It makes me feel much more a part of Rex’s day at school. We’ve printed out the words for next year and have it on the fridge ready to help him out at home.”

Thank you for being so caring and thank you for all the support that Eco Preschools has given us so far. Yes, seems like Katie had a good time and is starting to like the school.”

– L.Chang
