What makes you passionate about working in childcare?

After having children of my own, I realised I loved looking after children and watching them grow, it didn’t take me long to turn this love into my career. Caring and educating for the next generation is such a privilege and to have the opportunity to watch children learn, play and grow each day, is an honour. I strongly believe in providing a Centre where families feel safe and secure and can trust their children are being educated and well taken care of each day.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare?

Happy Hippo Childcare Annadale is conveniently located in the heart of the Annadale Estate, Mickleham. 

Our Service is currently rated as Meeting the National Quality Standards, this is an amazing achievement as we only opened our doors in January 2019.
We strive to make our Centre a home away from home, where families can feel confident that their children are well respected and where they can learn and grow to their full potential.

Our Service provides a variety of extra curriculum activities such as our Mini Master Chef Classes, Little Sports Heroes, Out and About programs, Italian and much more.
We have two qualified Kindergarten Teachers who operated our funded 4-year-old and 3-year-old kindergarten programs.
