Meet the Centre Manager

My name is Bec, and I am the Centre Manager at Yarra Park.

In 2011, I moved back home to Melbourne, after living in America for a year, working at Walt Disney World. That’s when I stated my career in early childhood education at the East Melbourne childcare co-operative, working at Powlett Reserve as a trainee. Since then, I have worked with all age groups while studying my Diploma in early childhood education which I completed in 2014. I had been at Powlett Reserve for 8 years before I had transferred to Yarra Park in 2019 to take on the role as centre manager.

I love being a part of the EMCC community and enjoy building relationships with all children and families. I believe in providing a fun, happy and loving environment where every single child feels comfortable and supported.

I enjoy spending my downtime with my husband (Nick), my nephew (Lachlan) and my mum (Debbie), and love being around friends a family. I also love listening to music whenever I get the chance.
