Our Staff at Henry Street Preschool
Our close knit and caring team of educators have all been working at the centre for between five and 30 years, providing ongoing continuity and stability for the centre and its children. We pride ourselves in our strong relationships that we develop and maintain with families who have attended Henry Street over the years. It is always lovely to see children who have attended our centre and see them grow and develop.
