Jacqui Szafran: Special Projects Co-ordinator, Senior Co-ordinator of CCRC Family Day Care, Nominated Supervisor

Hello my name is Jacqui and I hold a Bachelor in Social Science, Advanced Diploma of Children’s Services and Cert IV in Workplace Training and Assessing. 

I have worked in the council for over 25 years and in family day care since 1994. In this time I have spent 5 years as president of the Family Day Care Association Qld. 

I believe that it is important to communities to be resilient and self-reliant, providing a locally owned and operated high quality childcare service, is a step in the right direction.
