Sofi Galanis
Wattle Hill Kindergarten

Although Sofi Galanis is the Director of Wattle Hill Kindergarten, she see’s herself as more of an educator and as a friend to the children.

Sofi is highly motivated, dedicated and experienced. She holds a Bachelor of Early Childhood Studies from Melbourne University and has worked in this field for over 13 years, bringing to our kindergarten a wide range of skills and interests. She is fluent in two languages, English and Greek.

Sofi has created a quality program to cater for the individual needs and the group as a whole.  Working with Connie Mills as a team for 10 years, they are both very caring, culturally aware and sensitive to the diverse range of needs, cultures and families.
