At Allambie Bush Kindy, our educators are highly experienced in working with children and committed to the field of Early Childhood Education and Care. We promote a team culture and all staff members are valued members of the team, with each of their strengths and backgrounds recognised.

We recognise the importance of engaging in continual professional learning and actively encourage our educators to extend their professional knowledge by undertaking further studies in the field of early childhood. In turn they provide experiences and incorporate teaching opportunities that are deliberate and purposeful to help engage the children. We’re very proud of our staff as they help to lead each child from the exciting days of early learning, through a smooth transition into school.

The Centre Director is your first point of call for any questions you may have.

Jo Owen – Centre Director

Hello! I have over 20 years’ experience in the Early Childhood industry and hold a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood). I commenced working at Allambie Heights Children’s Centre, now Allambie Bush Kindy, in 2000, initially as room leader then taking on the role of Director.

It is a privilege to be supporting such a dedicated and caring team of educators who are continually striving to expand their knowledge and skills. Building relationships with the children and families who attend the centre is another very rewarding and important aspect of my position as Director.

We provide the children with a wide variety of experiences to develop their abilities and set them up with many skills they will use throughout their time at the centre, through school and beyond.
