Hi there, 

I’m Kristy and am excited to hold the role of Centre Director here within our education and care community. I bring to this service more than 20 years’ experience in the Early Childhood sector, with time spent in suburban and rural early learning centres across Western Australia, the Northern Territory, and New South Wales. I have fulfilled educating positions for children aged 0-12yrs, centre director roles, and educational leadership roles across Australia. With the vast geographic nature of my professional history, I hold a unique sense of ownership, and wonderful sense of belonging as I now work in my very own neighbourhood. It is my aim to ensure that everyone here at LPELC develops this same feeling of connection.  

I believe that within effective child-centred and play-based educational programs, learning outcomes are most likely to be achieved when early childhood educators work in partnership with children’s first and most influential teachers- you!! Therefore, I hope that you can find some time to visit, share your aspirations, and find out how we can work together to best provide your child with an enduring love for learning. 

Your Centre Manager,

Kristy Zuvela. 



My name is Jo, and I am the assistant Centre Manager, Co-Educational Leader, and Pre-school Lead Educator here at LPELC. My career in early childhood education began shortly after the birth of my eldest daughter following my awe and intrigue in the way she grew. Like the way she grew, so too did my passion for building awareness and furthering understandings of early childhood development. And so, here I am with children at the forefront of my play-based approach, where I continue to appreciate being a part of every child’s educational progress. My roles here at LPELC allow me to follow my passion, promote positive outcomes for children and their families, and support the evolving capacities of educators. 

I am privileged to fulfill these roles in a such a supportive and homelike environment, and always look forward to the prospect of creating new learning partnerships. Please let us know if you would like to stop in for a visit. 

Your Assistant Manager,

Joanne Emmelkamp.
