Meet our Centre Manager

I’m Janene Melchior and I am the Centre Manager at Guardian Early Learning – Kew East. I’ve been in Early Childhood for nearly 30 years and have an Associate Diploma in Social Science Child Care as well as a Diploma in Business.

I have always believed that the child is at the centre of their own learning and that we need to allow them the space to explore, wonder and create independently. It is important to build relationships and to really immerse yourself in your interactions with the children and with each other as educators. I am inspired by the families, children and by educators at our centres. Every day they teach me something and I like that we are on this learning journey together.

The children’s ideas and interests are the basis of our curriculum. It would simply not exist without them and are what drives the evolution of experiences. Our observations, extension and documentation of their ideas and interests assist to continue to develop the curriculum.

I am very new to the Kew East community so really look forward to exploring my new environment. Already neighbouring businesses have been extremely friendly and welcoming, and I look forward to us being great neighbours in return.

When I’m not at the centre you can find me spending time with my family (I have 4 ½ year old twins), reading a book or watching movies – with popcorn, of course!
