Alexis

Office Manager
Admin Building

Qualification: Blue Card

Hi, my name is Alexis, I have 2 teenage children and I enjoy travelling and cooking and have been at Campus Kindy since the start of 2012.

Prior to working at Campus Kindy my husband and I had our own business for 19 years where I worked in various areas ranging from managing a store to running the accounts department. We started with one store and eventually grew to 16 stores before deciding to close in 2010.

I really enjoy working at Campus Kindy and getting to talk to the children every day; as parents you would know what joy and happiness being around children can bring. It is really heartwarming when you arrive in the morning or leave in the afternoon and the kids say “hello Alexis” or “bye Alexis” and I am proud to say that I know most of them by their names too.

It really is a   pleasure to come to work each day.

Hi, my name is Yvonne and I graduated from QUT with a Bachelor\'s of Education in Early Childhood. Prior to that, my background has always been working with children where I have gained experiences in different schools and kindergartens both internationally and locally. Originally from Malaysia, I worked as a kindergarten teacher for several years before moving on to London to work also as a pre-school teacher. I finally arrived in Australia where I find myself again teaching in a kindergarten. Experience has taught me that children have a universal inate nature of inquisitiveness and wonder. It is for this very reason that I continue to want to work and learn alongside children of Campus Kindergarten.
