Tuart Hill Baby & Child Care Centre is a family-operated business owned by Joy and Anthony since 1996. Tuart Hill Out of School Care was acquired in 2002.

Joy and Anthony
Anthony manages all the daily administration related to the centres, including finances, payroll and accounting. Joy holds a Bachelor of Social Work and a Diploma in Children’s Services and is the centre’s director. Joy manages the day-to-day running of the centre, as well as working directly with the children on a daily basis. “We have worked extremely hard over the years as we believe it is important to provide quality care where parents can leave their children with peace of mind in a friendly environment, where early education is a priority. Working with children is a true delight and we have been very fortunate as our centre is multicultural — a true reflection of the wonderful country in which we live.”

I have been working at Tuart Hill Baby & Childcare Centre since 2013. I have a Diploma in Children’s Services and have been working in the childcare industry for many years, in addition I am a mother which has given me vast experience. I am the centre’s educational leader and believe strongly that children learn through play and positive early educational experiences make a lasting impression on children’s lives.  I love our centre because it is very multicultural and has a lovely family feel – so come in and visit us at any time!!


“Hi, I have been a part of the Tuart Hill Baby and Childcare team since 2012. I have always loved working with children. I have been a diploma qualified teacher in the childcare industry for over 10 years and am currently half way through my Early Childhood Teaching Degree. This allows me to be the Early Childhood Teacher for the centre. Tuart Hill Childcare centre is a fantastic centre, it has such a nuturing family feel, which is why i love bringing my daughter here.”

Every parent whose child attends Tuart Hill Baby and Child Care Centre secretly wishes they could take Angela home with them. Children who will barely touch their food at home have been known to scoff three or four bowlfuls of her delicious home-made pasta. She has been the centre’s beloved cook for seven years and the smells of her homecooking are as familiar to everyone as her care for the children she feeds. “After 20 years in aged care, it was a lovely change to be with children. It is a pleasure coming in each morning and to be greeted by all these smiling faces. My favourite part of the day is when the kids say: ‘I want more’.” And they do!

Anna has been job sharing in the kitchen with Angela for four years, working on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Anna has a passion for cooking both at the centre and at home, where she is always preparing up a feast for family and friends. Anna enjoys cooking for the children and, just like Angela, parents would like to take Anna’s cooking home for dinner! Anna loves working with the children each week and finds it rewarding to watch the children grow and develop into unique little people.


“Hi, I’ve been working at the centre since March 2010. I think it’s a great centre and I love caring for the children. I adore children and love watching them grow and learn and this is what has inspired me to become an Early Childhood Teacher.”

“Hi, I’m studying my Diploma in Children’s Services and hold a Certificate 3 in Child Care. I have been working at the centre since April 2011 and currently work in the toddler room. I have chosen this profession as I find it rewarding to assist children grow and learn and help prepare them for school in the future.”


“Hi I have been working at Tuart Hill Baby & Childcare Centre since 2013. I have a Certificate 3 in Child Care and will be commencing a teaching degree later this year. I love caring and working with children as I find it delightful watching them learn, develop and grown  into little individuals! I couldn’t imagine any other career but working with children and being part of their early education is wonderful.”


“Hi I have been working at Tuart Hill Baby & Childcare Centre since 2011. I am currently studying my Diploma in Children’s Services and have completed a Certificate 3 in Child Care.
