Raj is a Diploma-qualified early childhood educator who has worked at Central Park for four years.

What’s been your career history?

“I’ve worked as a lead educator in 0-2 and 2-3 year-old rooms, as a second in charge, a kindergarten assistant and as a chef in an early learning centre.”

Why did you choose this industry?
“When I was a centre chef I would watch the children and educators in the rooms having so much fun that I decided I wanted to be part of that too.”

Why do you love working at Central Park?

“We have a great team; we are council-run so it’s not-for-profit unlike other centres which can be driven more by what’s commercially viable/best for the centre. It’s like a family where the team and our children/ their families all support each other.”
