Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care

Hello, my name is Julie and I have been working at Happy Valley Community Children’s Centre since 2008. I have worked across the Centre over my time here and I moved permanently into the Preschool Room in 2017. I enjoy building relationships with the children, watching them grow and having a positive influence in their lives. I have five children of my own and I am a grandmother to six grandchildren. I love spending time with family, friends, and my Golden Retriever Travis. I’m a passionate Port Adelaide Supporter and football is a big part of my life. I look forward to getting to know the children and developing strong relationships with them as well as connecting to families. I enjoy watching the children grow and learn and seeing their individual personalities develop throughout the year.
