Yarralea Children's centre is a stand-alone, not-for-profit community children's centre, led by our experienced and committed Coordinator Stephanie Willey and supported by our capable and dedicated staff team. Our qualified and experienced teachers hold Bachelor degrees and our educators hold Certificate 3 and Diplomas of Children's Services.
The centre is governed by our Committee of Management, which works closely with staff to carry out its responsibilities as employer. Being involved in the committee is a great opportunity to make an important contribution to Yarralea's management and strategic direction, and to get to know parents, families and educators.
