What makes you passionate about working in childcare? Supporting and nurturing children’s growth and development, across all age groups. I enjoy forming trusting and valuable relationships with children and their families, as well. It’s very important to me, to take the time to make all children and their families feel welcome and comfortable within our service. 

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? I love the honesty of children. The conversations, actions, and responses that children can provide, will sometimes melt your heart or make you laugh like crazy! The familiar and trusting bonds that are formed with certain children, also make my job completely worthwhile. 

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? We are a centre full of passionate educators who are always striving for the best. We focus on sharing fun and meaningful experiences with the children. When walking into the centre you are immediately greeted with a warm homelike feeling and you can see the love shared around the centre. Sustainability is one of our centre passions. Our educators are constantly creating wonderful resources and play spaces using recycled and natural objects. Excursion play a major part in our practice’s. We enjoy taking the children out into our local community and to experience new adventures.
