Our Centre 


Dear Families,

My name is Geri Koilichka, and it is my pleasure to undertake the position of the Centre Manager at LEAD Childcare Burpengary.

I am a holder of a Bachelor’s Degree in Education (Teaching Early Years, ages from 0 to 8) with over twenty years of experience in the profession. I am also trained in Management, Teaching English as a Second Language, and Training and Assessment in Children’s Services.

I have designed, licensed and operated Early Childhood Education and Care Centres, and have contributed in various ways to the field of Early Childhood Education in Europe, New Zealand and Australia. 

I believe our children, being the most precious members of our society, need and deserve excellent quality care and education, which I aim to achieve by ensuring we create play and learning environments where our children feel safe, loved, inspired, curious, and happy. 

I also believe the above is only achievable if the managers, teachers, educators, parents, caregivers and wider community all work in partnership, and I encourage all involved to be open, honest and engaged, so we can support our children’s learning and development in the best possible way. 

I excitedly look forward to getting to know every member of our family here at LEAD Childcare Burpengary, and I trust it will be an enjoyable and rewarding journey.


"I love LEAD Childcare at Burpengary. My son has been with them from toddler to kindergarten. Not only is he better prepared for Prep than most children his age, he is excited about learning and I credit LEAD for inspiring that."
