Meet the team at Seaforth Childcare

Seaforth Childcare’s team of highly qualified educators and teachers are well-respected on the Northern Beaches.

We believe that our educators are our greatest asset and as a result, pride ourselves on the quality of the team member and their long-term commitment to our families and the service. One of the things we enjoy most is the chance to create meaningful long-term relationships with you and your children. As many of us are parents ourselves, we realise the level of trust you place in us when enrolling your child, and we’re committed to providing the highest quality care and education possible. That’s our promise to you.

Anita Commander

Seaforth’s Owner and Founder

The Centre was founded by my family in 1991 (and both my children, now teenagers, started their early education here). As a parent, I know how nerve-wracking it can be to leave your child in the care of others, which is why we’ve worked hard to create an inclusive, genuinely caring and nurturing environment.

As a privately-run service, we’re proud of our excellent local reputation, and on our ability to offer a more personal service to you and your family. My main role is to guide the overall direction of the service and run the administration, and to ensure your child enjoys an extraordinary early education and care experience with us.



Seaforth’s director

I’ve been lucky enough to work at Seaforth Child Care since 2005, after completing my Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood at Macquarie Uni. I’m passionate about the program we provide through the Early Learning Years Framework – mainly because the way we approach ‘learning’ has evolved a great deal over the years and there are now so many innovative activities and experiences our educators can provide for your children.

I particularly enjoy the relationships I’ve had the opportunity to form with you and your children, and as a mum myself, I’m committed to helping your children grow and thrive in the calm, caring, friendly and educational environment we provide. Please know that my door is always open if you ever need to talk – no issue is too small! Thanks for choosing to share the journey with us at Seaforth.
