"After almost a lifetime of teaching and raising 4 noisy, energetic sons, I have realised how much we could learn from our children. I am committed to encouraging opportunities to allow children’s contributions and for them to communicate their interests.

They will need these skills one day at work, in friendships and relationships."

Engela Neuhoff

"11 Years after commencing my legal career, I still have the same desire and ambition for gaining trust, supporting family transitions and making clients and children feel confident.

Having had two young children of my own passing through childcare, I appreciate the significant impact early learning educators have on young learners and the value they add by establishing a personal connection with every individual child. I am passionate and excited about Mini Bambini’s commitments and what it has on offer for the children and families of Sinagra and surrounds."
