Who we are

Playing in the leaves
Our staff is comprised of dedicated professionals, talented practica students and experienced volunteers.

The Family Centre is administrated through the Child Care Services. The centre is coordinated by Rebecca Ozbadem and Josephine Tepsi. 

On walking into the Family Centre you might be greeted by a number of people:

Staff

  • Rebecca Ozbadem: Child Care and Family Centre Assistant Manager.
  • Josephine Tepsi: Administrative support and assists with program development and family care. Josephine is an early childhood educator and runs the 'Early Learning' drop in programs and supports the Family Centre events and activities.

Practicum students

Practicum students from the schools of Social Work, Child and Youth Care, Nursing and others play an integral role in assisting with program delivery at the Family Centre. The Centre provides a unique and valuable learning opportunity.

Volunteers

The Family Centre would not be able to offer all that we do without the wonderful support of our volunteers. Some are students themselves, others are from the broader community, but all bring a wealth of experience and we greatly appreciate them!
