Hi, I’m Kayla Hogg

Centre Director at Shelharbour

I was Centre Director at our Albion Park campus for over 3 years before being appointed and entrusted as Centre Director for our amazing new Shellharbour centre which opened in February 2018.

I have over 10 years experience in the industry and hold a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care.

I believe children learn best when they feel supported, in a loving and caring environment; just like when they are at home. My mission as Centre Director is therefore to create a family environment and to make our centre a home. I feel this is especially important as a new centre.

I place a high importance on supporting my educators to provide an enriched learning environment and build a strong foundation for learning.



Felt right at home from the moment we walked in the door.”
