Liala Davighi – Owner

Liala Davighi was studying philosophy at the University of New South Wales, during which time she had her first baby and her first experience in child care. The campus child care services were full with wait lists in the hundreds. Along with other students, she petitioned the students union and within nine months the university funded a house and the students organised a child care cooperative.
Once she graduated she moved to Italy where she spent several years teaching English in primary schools and to adults in corporate business. In 2000 an opportunity arose to move to Barcelona for two years. She moved with her two daughters and was involved in establishing a franchise of ice-cream shops.

She moved back to Australia in 2004 and has been involved in the operation of the family owned child care business. She believes in keeping the ‘care’ in early education and supporting families which is reflected in her passion for the Reggio Emilia approach to education for young people. Liala enjoys spending time with her family which also includes two grand children, reading a good book and getting outdoors.

Grateful for her natural swimming ability and love for the ocean she volunteers as a surf life saver and water safety officer for Nippers, helping others foster a love for the water while feeling safe.
