What makes you passionate about Early Childhood Education?
Supporting children as they try things for the first time, overcome barriers and develop into confident community members is the most rewarding job in the world.
 
How long have you been working with children? 9 years in the Early  Education Sector
However I have been working directly with children in various roles and jobs for over  13 years.
What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare?
 
The funniest moment I have experienced in a centre: I was doing bus run for the school children when a child said “Wow you take safety seriously!” When I asked what they meant, the child responded “Oh don’t worry it is a good thing……..I like it.”
 
Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best centre?
Our outstanding professional staff members are loving, caring and continually go above and beyond for each and every child in their care. Educators support children in developing strong independent learners who follow their life path, wherever it may lead. We advocate for children’s rights and sense of agency through every action, though and process, this I reflected in our daily programs , routines and relationships with each child that attends the service.

We have outstanding community connections with local schools, businesses and charities. Our staff regularly volunteer weekends to support the Bush Program  and various charities.
