Centre Management Committee
The centre is managed by a voluntary Committee made up of families and interested community members. The committee works closely with the Director and carries the overall responsibility for the operation of the centre. It's role is to ensure the regulations laid down by various government bodies are observed, to oversee and support the Director and keep a close eye on expenditure. Committee members are elected to their positions at the Annual General Meeting which is held in October of each year.
Shelley joined us in November 2012, she came to us after 17 years in the industry starting as a cleaner and climbing the ranks to a Director which is a role she had been in 7 years prior to us. She had mainly been in the private sector but found this wasn't reflecting her values or philosophy for education and care of children, which brought her to our team. She comes from an English background and loves her job because " it is her passion to help create a better tomorrow for our children"
Shelley has her Certificate 2,3,4 and Diploma in children services, she also holds her certificate 4 in training and assessment. She casually works for Edith Cowan University as a Supervisor of students enrolled in Early Childhood Teaching which proves her passion for childcare.
Shelley's Personal Philosophy
I believe each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow & mature. I believe every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world
Children have taught me to open my mind & heart to the joys, the innocence, and the diversity in the world. Because of this, I will remember to smile with the new, cherish the old, and laugh with children.
“Everyday I strive to make a better tomorrow for our children”
