Our People

Our people

Each day our educators bring with them their enthusiasm and knowledge and experience in childcare to provide the children with a variety of stimulating learning experiences. We work within approved educational frameworks and with the families and the community at large, to ensure that the children are meeting their milestones in a warm and cooperative environment that promotes inclusiveness. Our educators appreciate and encourage children to live in the moment as we value individuality and will work with a wide range of needs.

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I love the thrill of joining the children in their learning, and sharing my knowledge and experiences with them too. It’s always exciting to find new ways to challenge their thoughts and understanding, and then to watch as their face lights up with recognition and pride in their success.

What is the funniest or most memorable you can share from working in childcare? Teaching children new words and songs is always somewhat amusing as they practice new sounds and blends. I’ve been taweena, kaneena, and areena more times than I can count.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Our centre prides itself on allowing children the time to be children. We have a strong and committed team of educators who enjoy creating a balance between our routines and play- recognising and incorporating “education” with play as the ultimate form of learning. Critical and creative thinking is encouraged, and connections with nature and the outdoors feature strongly in our programs
