Grandma’s Place opened in 2009, and features both a Kindy Wing catering for children in the two years before starting school, and a First Three Years Wing caring for younger children and babies.
Grandma’s Place is proudly owned and operated by a local family. Judy Hawkins is the Nominated Supervisor at Grandma’s Place and has over 35 years’ primary school and early childhood teaching experience (and yes, she is also a Grandma!)
Judy’s daughter, Jane Bobbermein is the centers’ Manager and shares the leadership role with Judy. Together with their husbands, Dennis and Victor, they are the driving force behind the quality care and education offered at Grandma’s Place.
Grandma’s Place has a highly qualified team with five qualified Teachers and a majority of Educators at Diploma level. We are also supported by a wonderful team of chefs, administrators and maintenance people.
It’s rare to find such a concentration of highly qualified Teachers and experienced Educators and we are collectively very proud of the quality early learning program this team is able to provide for your child.
Quality care and early learning for children has always been our highest priority and we’ve drawn from international best practices to build holistic programs.
Sarina has a wonderful sense of community and Grandma’s Place enjoys being part of, and contributing to, this social fabric. As a family-owned Kindergarten and child care centre, Grandma’s Place understands the importance of being family-friendly and aims to provide a completely family friendly space in the community.
