Jenny’s Kindergarten & Early Learning
Jenny’s Kindergarten and Early Learning Riverwood is situated in a quiet residential street just five minutes walk from the heart of Riverwood. We have a fantastic local community that allows us to incorporate on a regular basis their input and wealth of knowledge. We have a diverse range of cultures, both families and educators and we value the regular and ongoing input from our families. We have ample parking on site for families to use whilst dropping off and collecting their children and service is proud that we have loyal educators and families boasting a mini community of our own.
My name is Yvonne Manoleras and I am the Centre Director of Jenny’s Kindergarten and Early Learning Riverwood. I grew up in Sydney’s South West in a close nit family, both immediate and extended. I started my career going back 24 years in office administration and after a few years realised that there was no challenge in it for me. My passion lied with young children and I decided to make a career move in my early 20’s. My family were a great support to me during this process. I went back to studying and completed my Certificate III in Children’s Services at Tafe and then continued on to complete my Diploma in Children’s services. I then started working in the Early Childhood field. I commenced as a Diploma trained room leader, then progressed to second in charge and acting Director and then to Centre director. I took a position with Jenny’s Kindergarten as Centre Director back in February 2007 and found myself working in a supportive, forward thinking, growing company. I have also since started, and have nearly completed my Bachelor of Early Childhood, Birth to Five years, via correspondence with University. I am looking forward to completing my degree and continuing to provide challenging, child focused environments for all families.
