      Centre Director - Qualified Educator

      Hi, I’m Jaye and I have been an early childhood educator (ECE) since 1997. After gaining my Diploma, and becoming a Qualified ECE in 2000, I worked for several years as an Educational Leader across all age groups and into the role of Director. I am fortunate to have worked for both a large ECE company and independent private early childhood services.

      I am a Mum, to four wonderful children, who keep me very busy. As the Mum to a child with special needs, I am passionate about creating inclusive learning environments, and ensuring all children are provided with equal opportunities to learn and grow.
