Our Team

Our Team


Meet our Team at Kids on Beaufort a place where highly qualified, dedicated and creative educators work closely with all children and families. The success of Kids on Beaufort will be the strong connections made between Our Team and your Family. We will create a centre that demonstrates inclusiveness, celebrates culture and explores little minds. We offer a place where your child feels safe and secure while we all play, grow and learn together. 



Watching my children grow and having meaningful, fascinating and rather amusing conversations with them led me into a career path I now find myself in. Putting the child first and giving them opportunities to be heard and put their ideas into practice gives the child a sense of belonging and purpose and this in turn can help create a confident little being. I believe Kids on Beaufort will be a place where laughter will be heard and happiness can be seen.



I feel very blessed and excited to be sharing this dream and journey to open a child care centre- with you all. It is such an amazing and rewarding feeling to know that, we can offer our local Community a quality Childcare centre. Kids on Beaufort will provide opportunities for children to explore, discover, create and imagine. And our Educators will support your child through some of the most important years of their lives.
