Centre Manager profile

Heather Karabatakis

Headstart ELC Berwick centre manager

My name is Heather and I am the Centre Manager here at Headstart ELC Berwick. I have worked in the sector for 10 years and been with G8 Education for 7years. I have worked my way towards my position starting as an Assistant Educator in 2015 after completing my Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care.

The majority of my work as an educator was running a Nursery and looking after babies. I absolutely love all ages groups and understand that it’s not easy for new parents to return to work and have their babies in childcare. This is where my passion for collaborative relationships with parents became very important to me.

This encouraged my career goals to head more towards management and be able to provide the best quality education and care for all individual children.

I love working with my wonderful team here in Berwick and watching the relationships they build with each child and the educational care they provide.

Please feel free to get in touch with our Customer Engagement team and arrange a tour of our service at any time.

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“I can work full time knowing my daughter is safe, happy and loved by the women at HeadStart. I wanted a centre that I believed would love my daughter like I do and give her all the attention, care and stimulation she needs during the day; that place is Headstart. She has made so many little friends and she loves her ‘teachers – Miss Bec and Miss Taylah’ so much. She talks about them all the time and runs to them in the mornings to see what they have planned for the day.”

– Polly
