Assistant Director

Jackie Hughes

Jackie has worked in the Child Care Industry for over 36 years. She began her career in the United Kingdom and upon emigrating to Australia in 1997, furthered her career at the Hope Valley Child Care Centre where she met Amanda and hence created the professional team that was instrumental in the setup of  Northgate Early Learning & Kindergarten. Jackie has experienced the many changes in Child Care over the years and has been flexible to grow and embrace these changes to ensure consistently good outcomes for both children and families.

Jackie is passionate about her role as Educational Leader and it is her goal to ensure that every child in the Centre is seen as a unique individual, who through involvement in stimulating experiences, can explore and learn in their own individual way. She embraces multiculturalism and uses this wealth of culture as a foundation to build on her own and other Educators’ practices.

Operations Manager

Eleni Foster

Eleni is a member of the family business and began her administrative career at Northgate Early Learning & Kindergarten since its inception in 2003. She travels between both Centres and provides management and support to our six office administration staff. Eleni ensures that the Centres are efficiently run in their day to day operations and is instrumental in implementing state of the art technology to ensure the Centres are children and family friendly and compliant with the Child Care Subsidy System.

Eleni is also responsible for the integrity of the buildings of both Centres and ensures the strict maintenance schedule is adhered to at all times. This acts to maintain the continual safety of all who enter the premises.

Both the Northgate and Greenwith Services offer a unique brand of Child Care. Eleni and Amanda work closely together at both Centres to ensure this brand is consistent at both Centres and principals and philosophies are constantly upheld to maintain the point of difference from neighbouring Centres.
