Wunan appoints a New Manager for the Halls Creek Children & Family Centre
16 February 2012
Little Nuggets & Hall Creek Children & Family Centre
Wunan has appointed a Halls Creek local, Robert Reichel, to the position of Manager of the newly refurbished Halls Creek Children and Family Centre. Wunan is proudly working with Little Nuggets Early Learning Inc and Save the Children to develop and operate the new centre in a way that meets the needs of the Halls Creek Community.
Wunan has requested the Kimberley Language and Cultural Centre in Halls Creek, in consultation with Senior Elders, to consider a culturally appropriate name for the Centre that speaks to its purpose and meaning to Halls Creek residents.
Housed in the Halls Creek Children and Family Centre is Halls Creek’s childcare service Little Nuggets which, with assistance from Wunan and the Department for Communities, reopened on Monday 16 January 2012 and has had an exciting first week.
One of Wunan’s key roles will be providing governance and administrative support required to build the organisational and operational capacity of Little Nuggets Early Learning Centre Inc (LN). LN has been delivering child care in Halls creek for several years but does not currently have the management capacity required to tender for the operation of the centre. It is intended that the support provided by Wunan will enable Little Nuggets to operate the centre in the future.
