Qualifications: Advanced Diploma

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? As Centre Manager I love to see the children’s personality and self-confidence develop as they grow in our environment. It is wonderful to see the children come in each morning with big smiles on their faces and sometimes in the afternoon not wanting to go home but to stay and play!

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? Over the last year I have had the pleasure of a little boy and a little girl from the same family bring me a flower of some sort picked from my garden every day. If I am not at my desk when they come in they will leave them for me to find and then ask me when I see them “did you find something?” It is the best start to my day!

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? We provide a wonderful environment and a warm and inviting community where you feel like you are part of an extended family. We have long standing staff who have been here for a long time. They are passionate and enthusiastic they listen to the children to extend on their interests. Both our environment and program reflect our philosophy that children are treated with equality and their cultural and linguistic diversity is embraced and acknowledged. Our centre is situated next to the local school which makes it easy for parents to do the drop off.
