Centre Director


Tonia Ashton

I understand the importance of Early Childhood Education. Leading a team of dedicated and passionate Teachers and Educators to ensure your child thrives in a safe, secure, nurturing learning environment. I have held many positions at Starkids on my journey to becoming the Director – from cook, assistant educator, lead educator, assistant Director then taking on the role as Director/Nominated Supervisor in 2016. Drawing on a wide range of professional and personal skills I am able to provide the best possible service for our families.

Inspire and Teach! I am currently undertaking my Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood. An Early Childhood Education degree is a chance to learn about specific tools that I can utilize to help a young child learn to love learning.

As the StarKids Director – I remain knowledgeable and up to date by understanding local, state, and federal laws, licensing requirements, inspection, and certification procedures.
