Joanne Stewart - Centre Owner
Our centre owners are a great mother-in-law and daughter-in-law combination who are focused on operating a family based boutique centre, where children are nurtured, teachers are valued and parents leave their children with confidence that they will be well cared for and their development assured. Joanne Stewart and Joanne Whorwood brought the Centre in 2018 from family friends, with plans for this business to be owned for a very long time, hopefully to pass to the next generation of their family.
Joanne Stewart was originally a nurse, and has worked in the area of finance, leadership, learning and development for many years. Joanne Whorwood has worked globally in childcare, and for the last 4 years has worked in the Castor Bay Centre, she now has the combined role of Centre Director and Teacher. Both are passionate about the early learning and development needs of infants and small children.
