Charlene moved to Australia 14 years ago with her family. She has 3 children ranging from 6 years to 18 years of age and all 3 kids are part of the Yavneh family. Charlene has been in the teaching field for 21 years and has worked with crèche aged children, kinder-aged children and children with special needs both in South Africa and Australia. She has a passion for education – especially the educating of young children.

Charlene believes that children learn best when placed in an environment of trust, love and respect. She believes that children need to feel a strong sense of comfort and security in order to optimise their learning. Charlene has embraced the National Quality Framework and endeavours to provide an environment that educates children’s interests and individual needs- giving them a sense of belonging. Her aim is to create curious, interested and enquiring individuals who feel secure enough to tackle all that life throws at them.
