The Coobaaroo Room
(6 mths to 2.5 years)

Lead Educator

Diploma Qualified

My name is Serena Yu; I completed my Diploma of Childhood Education with Holmesglen Institute of TAFE. 

My relationship with early childhood education comes from my grandmother, the director of a kindergarten in China. I often spent my school holiday time with her; her passion for working with young children influenced my growth. I strongly believe that childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write and count. Childhood is a small window of time for each child to learn and develop at the right pace.

Hello, My name is Fatima. Working in the Coobaaroo room has been a pleasure. Back in 2016 I received my Diploma and since then it has brought me joy to work with children. Children are truly amazing. I enjoy their cuddles, laughs, endless energy & creativity. It allows me to witness the magic of childhood, help children grow and learn, form meaningful connections. It's an opportunity to see children's development and learning firsthand as they grow and flourish under our care. Working with children challenges me to learn and grow continuously.  I am passionate to help children to grow and learn.

Hi, my name is Bhagya, and I have recently started working at CPELC. I am grateful for the positive environment that is provided here for children and educators. The biggest reason of working here is to witness the development and learning of children every day and supporting their different learning styles. Fostering the development of the children's personalities and taking care of their well-being is a highlight of my role.
