I pride myself on creating environments that feel like a ‘home away from home’ for children, families and my team. And as a mother of three, without extended family in Perth, I understand the importance of feeling a sense of belonging, trust and support.

I’m passionate about ensuring Perth Kaadidjiny Maya feels like a second home where children and families are safe, secure, supported, educated and cared for.
