    Meet Jo

    I have been in the Early childhood industry in Australia for over 25 years in a variety of roles including Educator, Director, Manager and Admin. I enjoy making connections with both families and their children and love working in a small centre. I open the centre 4 days a week and tend to float in the centre in the morning moving into the office once the team arrives. I look forward to welcoming you into our centre family.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    We provide most of the essentials that may be needed throughout the day. We ask that you pack and label; spare clothes, water bottle, comfort items/dummies. And if your child requires a sleeping bag, milk bottles, formula, or breast milk.

    We offer orientation sessions for families to come along before the first day to have a short play with us. These sessions are usually close to the first day and act as a good lead in. It gives you, your child, and the educators time to get to know each other and the opportunity to ask any questions or provide important information. These sessions are usually organized once enrolment is confirmed, they last for 2 hours and are free of charge. Talking about it at home is also a great way to get your child excited for all the amazing experiences they will get to be a part of.

    Be positive! Make the drop off a happy experience and take a few minutes to help your child to settle in. The mornings can be busy, but taking some time to find an activity your child enjoys and saying goodbye can help for a smoother start to their day. There will always be a warm and caring educator on hand to help. You are always welcome to give the centre a call after you have left for an update.

    The educator to child ratio varies depending on state and territory, we meet or exceed this ratio. 0 to 24 months the ratio is 1:4 in all states and territories. 24 to 36 months the ratio is 1:5 in QLD and SA, and 1:4 in VIC. Over 36 months the ratio is 1:11 in QLD, SA and VIC. You can find out more on the ACECQA website.

    It is important to take the time to find a centre where you feel confident and comfortable and know your child will be safe, happy, and protected. Find a centre that provides a learning environment where careful guidance and role modelling by educators can help children become competent, independent and develop valuable life skills. It is also important to consider aspects that will impact your family such as location, cost, and inclusions.

    All Mayfield Early Education centres aim to meet or exceed the National Quality Standards and Regulatory requirements of an early childhood service.

    Wonderful centre with some very caring and compassionate educators who are amazing and supportive. Upper management are not overly helpful or engaging but the centre director and team on site make up for that!


    The educators are very caring towards my child. They always make sure the children receive the best care and support while at the centre. Highly recommend


    The staff at the centre are fantastic, they get to know all the kids so well and generally follow their group through the different rooms. Being a small centre the kids all get to get together at different times giving them all exposure to different ages groups - absolutely fantastic centre, highly recommend.
