Meet the centre manager
I started working in early learning in 2015. I joined the team at Kinder Haven Jannali 2 in
2023. I currently hold my Bachelor of Education (Birth to Five Years). I am a registered teacher with NESA. I previously received my Certificate 3 and Diploma through traineeship and have worked in the sector for over 7 years.
I chose Early Childhood Education as a career because I am passionate about the growth and development of children. I love seeing the smiles on children’s faces and how they share their stories and experiences from their day with their families. I am grateful to be a part of this sector. It is very rewarding as we watch the children grow, learn and graduate with us.
When a child attends an early childhood education and care centre, they are able to socialise with the other children, develop independence, extend and explore their interests and become ready for life beyond early childhood.
I have learnt that every child is a unique individual. It has guided my teaching style, making me flexible in my programming to ensure I cater for every child in my care. I ensure each child is settled into their environment and developing positive relationships with the child before focusing on their individual growth and strength, as children learn best when they’re in a secure environment.
Our team are hardworking individuals who strive to ensure they are providing quality care and education for the children we look after. I am always very transparent and honest, which is vital to maintaining a trusting relationship. I listen carefully to requests and work with the families to ensure a smooth transition and a great experience for children. Families can come to me when they have any feedback and I work with my team to ensure we respond and take action.

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect from a centre tour?
A centre tour is a convenient way to experience the centre of your choice and meet with our qualified educators at a time suitable to your family schedule. Kinder Haven also offers the virtual tour option in all our centres. Click here to book a tour online.
On the day of the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to observe practices and interactions within the centre environment. You’ll be able to see all the rooms and playgrounds, ask the team members any questions you have in mind, and get all the information you need to make the best decision for your child.
Do I have to be on a waitlist?
Kinder Haven’s Family Support team will add your child’s name to our waitlist if one of our centres is currently full in your child’s age group. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available.
We also do monthly check-ins to review the availability, and you will receive a text message confirming if you’re still happy to remain on the waitlist each month. If you would like to get an update at any point, you’re welcome to reach out on our Web Chat or give us a call.
Our Family Support team can also help you find more G8 early learning centres near you, with the same offerings at the Kinder Haven centre you are interested in that have immediate availability.
What can I do to help my child prepare for starting care?
It’s common for a child to experience separation anxiety when they first start child care. When you’re getting ready to start child care, you can help your child overcome anxieties by visiting the child care centre together for a Stay and Play session, and easing into new routines at home.

What should I pack my child for their first day?
Most of our Kinder Haven child care and early education centres offer the following:
- Nappies and wipes
- Sunscreen and hats
- Nutritious meals prepared by our in-house cook
Some centres also provide sheets and formula, so you may not need to remember to pack them.
For nursery children, be sure to bring: nappy rash cream, dummies, bottles and teats, comfort toys or blankets, three spare outfits, spare socks and a plastic bag for wet clothes.
For toddlers and preschool or kindergarten-aged children, it’s best to bring: spare underwear, water bottle or sippy cup, sun hat, closed-toe shoes, two spare outfits, spare socks and a plastic bag for wet clothes.
Plus anything else your individual child may need, such as breast milk, a sleeping bag, a comforter or medication.
It’s best to speak to your centre of choice for a full list of everything included.
How do I get updates on my child's day?
Kinder Haven uses Xplor Home as our family communication app. It is the best and easiest way to keep track of your child’s day. After you enrol your child with the centre, you can utilise Xplor Home to book child care days, manage your account, receive the photographs that capture your child’s learning, learn about your child’s progress, as well as keep up-to-date with upcoming centre events and important information.
What if my child gets sick?
If your child shows signs of an infectious illness when they arrive at the centre or becomes sick during the day, you may be notified that you need to make alternative arrangements or pick up your child from the centre, and keep them home until they are no longer infectious. While we understand that this can be inconvenient, Kinder Haven is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.
Under the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), families are allowed 42 absence days per child, per financial year. These can be taken for any reason, including public holidays and when children are sick, without the need for families to provide documentation.
