Our Staff

Meet Our Staff

At Leora Baby Centre we are very choosy and are very proud with the staff that we appoint.
Our carers are very dedicated, warm and loving people. Some of our staff are parents of young children like you.
All our educators have qualifications and have experience working with children.
They know the ins and outs of educating young children. You will find that our carers chose to be in this field and are not for here for the short haul.
With us your child is in safe hands. Our carers go through police check, through ‘working with children’ check and are required to demonstrate to us that they meet our standards.
Your child is always supervised and is always safe with us. We observe the development of your child daily and our educators tailor activities that suit the development of your child.
Looking after your child is what we do best so next time you are at our centre speak with Leora and meet our staff.

I have a passion for working with children. After many years of experience as a childcare educator, I have made the decision to turn my dreams into reality and open my own centre. I love coming to work every day and I treasure the opportunity I have in laying down the foundations of your children's' development.
