Meet Our Centre Manager

Kim Silman

I started my childcare career in long day care in 2015, as an assistant in the Kindergarten room. I continued my career progression taking on the Assistant Director position along with running my own room. During the role of Assistant Director, I built positive working relationships with the children, families and educators in my Centre.

In 2017 I moved to the Outside School Hours sector taking on the Coordinator position. Whilst I enjoyed the learning experience that the OSHC setting provides, I found that my passion is within the long day care sector. I am currently finishing up a maternity leave contract before joining the Papilio team in the New Year. 

I am really looking forward to developing reciprocal and respectful relationships with the children, families and children and educators within the service.

In my spare time I enjoy reading a good book, playing with my dog and catching up with friends.

I am also currently studying my Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood.
