Rebecca Smith


Assistant Director and Educational Leader

Bachelor of Education – Early Childhood/ Bachelor of Arts

Hello, my name is Rebecca, but most people call me Bec, and I have worked at Happy Valley Community Children’s Centre since August 2013. I have progressed in my roles while I have been at the Centre, from Early Childhood Teacher in the Preschool Room to becoming Assistant Director in July 2019. My passion is working with children to enable them to build strong and confident identities and offer them a rich play space where they can learn, develop, and grow. Building strong connections with the children is important to me so they all feel safe and secure when they come to the Centre. As Educational Leader I look to inspire the educators and provide opportunities to empower all educators at our Centre to offer the best start to all children’s lives we encounter. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family, friends and watching my niece grow up too fast! I am looking forward to getting to know you and supporting your child in their development.
