The Bambini Team

“The goal of early education is to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.” ~ Maria Montessori

We have a multicultural team of over 20 educators, who are dedicated, highly qualified and have broad experience. We all have a profound love of working with children and advocating for their rights. We are leaders in the field with a clear vision: inspire young minds and build leaders of tomorrow.

At Bambini Early Learning Childcare, we recruit only the best when we’re looking for staff. We seek passion, qualification and the desire to learn. We pride ourselves on ongoing professional development and research to cater for different learning styles and the needs of your child. As a team, we engage families and other experts to support your child achieve goals.

Our point of excellence includes a university qualified Early Childhood Teacher in every room.

Sandra Felli, Founder

Sandra is a mother to two beautiful daughters, both of whom were in childcare full time at very young ages and are now both successful in their individual pursuits.

It was through her experiences Sandra developed a passion to provide all children the very best possible care, giving each child unconditional love, security and a family away from home, along with the highest quality education that inspires the child and creates a love of learning in continuum.

For Sandra, ‘inspiring young minds’ to create leaders of tomorrow is more than just learning. It’s setting the environment in which the security derived by a child through individual care, love, attention and fun creates confidence that engages the child to explore and learn.
