Centre Coordinator

Hello, I’m Rachael Bawden, and I’ve been a part of Ngala Early Learning Perth Airport since 2013. Initially joining as an Early Childhood Teacher, I transitioned into the role of Service Coordinator in 2015. I hold a Graduate Diploma in Children’s Services (Children and Family Studies), a Masters in Infant Mental Health, and a Graduate Certificate in Human Resource Management.

My professional passion revolves around nurturing relationships. I firmly believe that children thrive within the context of their primary caregiving relationships, and early childhood educators play a pivotal role in fostering these bonds.

My mission is to cultivate an environment where all children, families, and staff members feel safe and supported. I understand that providing this foundation of security is essential for fostering growth and development in every individual.

I look forward to welcoming you and your family to our beautiful service.
