Meet the Centre Manager – Justine Esler
I hold a Diploma of Children’s Services, a Diploma of Leadership and Management, and an Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management.
I was inspired to work in early education because the Kinder program I attended as a child didn’t properly prepare me for school. As a result, I repeated my prep year which was damaging to my self-confidence. This experience inspires me every day. I want to ensure we’re giving children every opportunity to grow and develop through a balance of child-initiated learning and structured teacher-led experiences.
Our experienced educators have a very professional and caring approach. The values that are most important to me are honesty and integrity, and I set these core values as an expectation within our team.
I welcome you to drop in to our centre to find out more about our fantastic care and education service.
