My story

Elise Charriere was born in Switzerland and grew up in the idyllic Swiss Alps, where her Dad was a primary school teacher. It is this early foundation that has instilled a love of education in her.

Elise’s career began working for a Swiss non-government organisation which taught her a great deal about working with other cultures and diverse workplace processes and systems.

She moved back to Lausanne where she worked for the prestigious Swiss hospitality school (EHL) in project management and finance. This led to a move to one of the Big Four global consulting companies, where she moved between Switzerland and Australia.

This proved to be very fortuitous as in 2014 Elise secured work for a well-established local architecture firm where she co-project managed the launch of their in-house childcare facility. The success of this enabled the firm to open this facility to the public.  A fundamental part of the success of this venture was the sourcing and recruitment and induction of key staff which Elise oversaw as well as running the Centre.

GEarly Childhood Teacher

I enjoyed working with Elise because she promoted a stimulating and relaxing working environment through her vibrant personality, positive attitude, and focus on ongoing professional development.

KFormer Director

My time with Elise was by far my favourite employment in my lifetime and I would jump at any opportunity to be a part of her team again. I was supported to further my skills and encouraged to fulfil my potential becoming a centre manager. Being a part of her team felt like being embraced as part of a family where we worked hard and was highly rewarded for our dedication.


I have worked alongside Elise for the past 2 years. In this time, I have been fortunate enough to gain a manager and a mentor who has supported me in my career journey as early childhood educator. Elise has provided me with professional guidance and has shown me ongoing leadership when teaching young children. Elise has motivated me through her experience and leadership to progress in my working role as an early childhood educator.


Elise is by far the most energetic, encouraging and enthusiastic person I know. Managing the office or on the floor working with children, Elise puts her heart and soul into everything she does. While working with Elise, I felt the love and support she so generously provides along with her positive, professional, and caring nature, Elise is a treasure in our industry.
