Meet the centre manager
I began my career in early childhood education and care over 30 years ago. Both teaching and managing centres.
I hold a Bachelor of Teaching Degree, Diploma in Business Management, Child Protection Qualification, First Aid, Asthma and Anaphylaxis, and current CPR, Food Safety Supervisor Certificate, and many other certificates be relating to Early Childhood Education and Care and I’m trained in Child Protection and First Aid. In my free time, I also do a lot of reading on early education to be able to provide the best guidance and assistance to families, my centre, employees and of course the children.
From a very young age I always wanted to become a teacher. I get inspired every day by the children, watching them learn and grow so much through play is the best experience ever.
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!
Our team understands just how important your children are to you and we ensure we take our responsibilities seriously. Kinder Haven Centres have extensive policy and procedures in place to assist our team in protecting children in our care.
My passion is to run a centre which provides high quality care for young children, within a happy safe environment were children learn through play. It is my belief that children who are not happy will not learn, so ensuring children feel safe and happy will allow them to learn.
If you are looking for a centre which delivers high quality care and education please come in for a tour and meet myself and my team.

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.

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.

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.
