What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I love observing and supporting children’s growth and development, through play-based learning and intentional teaching opportunities. I enjoy forming trusting and valuable relationships with children and their families and it’s very important to me to make all people within our service feel safe, secure, and supported. 

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? There have been so many wonderful memories, the times I love most are when the children approach me and tell me about something they’ve achieved, or remind me of things I haven’t done yet, or instruct me to help them with something. I always love their smile and honest words and getting down to their level for play.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Our centre is 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 center’s passions. Our educators are constantly creating wonderful resources and play spaces using recycled and natural objects. Excursions and Incursions play a major part in our practice’s. We enjoy taking the children out into our local community and to experience new adventures.
