Anita Yadav Centre Director
Hello! My name is Anita, I'm the Centre Director at Goodstart Wantirna South Cathies Lane.
I come to you with more than 19 years of experience in multidisciplinary industries, it was when I entered early childhood education, that I finally found my passion and haven’t turned back ever since.
I believe it is very important to work closely as a team, committed to providing quality education and care to children by building respectful and trusting relationships with children and families. Ensuring that the children feel secure and they belong, leading to shaping who children are and who they can become in future, celebrating their uniqueness and recognising themselves as being valued, respected and an important member of the diverse community to which they can contribute to.
Every success, small or large are worth celebrating and everyone should feel valued and know they have a special place in our community.
I enjoy baking and experimenting with different recipes during my free time. I love travelling and learning about different cultures, history and food.
I look forward to meeting you in person and show you our centre and the wonderful team at Cathies Lane.
