There was never any doubt in Anthony Hoban’s mind he’d have a career working with children.
It was just a matter of where and when.
And so it happened that, following his training, he worked in a number of early childhood centres and gradually moved into management roles.
The passionate Early Childhood Worker has been overseeing OSHC sites in Sydney for several years, and has just joined the South Eastern Community Connect team as our Children’s Services Manager.
Anthony manages our five SMOOSH OSHC sites in Sydney, including primary school programs at Bankstown , Bankstown South, Birrong, Eastlakes and Hampden Park.
He’s excited about developing the SMOOSH brand and offering dynamic new services to the community.
Community at heart
Anthony has been passionate about community work for some time, volunteering with organisations such as St Vincent de Paul, the Sydney Children’s Hospital, and Youth Off The Streets.
“Community is about having a feeling of wellbeing and knowing you’re supported,” he says.
“It’s about having people around you to provide you with opportunities you might not have had elsewhere.”
Anthony’s all set to develop the skills of his Early Childhood team across all sites, build relationships with staff – and bring a warm and friendly face to everyone he meets.
“I look forward to working collaboratively with staff to ensure the children we support feel safe, happy, and included.”
