Yovana Minien Centre Director
Hi, my Name is Yovana and I am the Centre Director for Goodstart Frankston- Dandenong Road, Carrum Downs.
Since 2008, when I moved from Mauritius,, I have been working in the Early Childhood Industry. I have my advanced Diploma in Children’s Services and bring in a wealth of knowledge to support the children, families and Educators.
I have grown my career and had been involved in many different roles in the centre environment. My passion and vision is what motivates me to continuously improve. I believe that all children should have access to a high quality early education to ensure the fundamentals are laid for their life of learning.
My vision is to ensure that all families and children are supported and feel safe, secure and supported while at Goodstart. As a mum myself I understand the importance of finding that perfect place for your little one - one that inspires, is respectful, fun and supportive.
I look forward working with you and your family, along with my wonderful team of highly educated and passionate educators and see how we can get started on this learning journey together.
