Our Key People - The Play Makers
Early learning staff are called Educators; as well as Group Leaders, Directors and Assistants. The KinderMarlee team are all key people, as well as masterful 'play makers' in the lives of young children. Labels and titles however, are not everything. What is important is the commitment, values and beliefs each person gives to their role.

Hello my name is Tiffany. I have a Certificate III in Children's Services and worked in child care before taking time off to raise my own children.
