Meet the Centre Manager – Janelle Jones
I’ve been working in early education since 2008. I hold a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care, a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care, and an Advanced Diploma of Children’s Services.
My favourite thing about being Centre Manager is that I not only get the benefit of working closely with families, but I can also support and lead our educators to be the best they can be. I believe that children deserve the best start in life and our role in early education is crucial.
Our carefully constructed environments support all developmental domains, giving children choices, responsibilities and opportunities to initiate their own learning, and allowing them to become the best versions of themselves.
I look forward to meeting you and establishing a close relationship with your family and our community.
