Hi, my name is Siobhan and I am the Centre Manager of Gungahlin Kinder Haven.
My passion for Early Education started at a young age. Whilst deciding what career path to take I knew that I wanted to work with children in my future. After working and volunteering overseas in orphanages and schools, I decided to take up a traineeship in Early Childhood and have never looked back!
I have been in the Early Childhood Sector since 2006, when I first began my traineeship. Since then I have trained and studied my way to obtain my Diploma in Children’s Services and have worked in many roles within the sector, I have been within the Early Childhood sector since early 2006.
My personal philosophy is that the centre should be a home away from home, somewhere you feel welcome, loved and accepted as soon as you enter the door. I believe that all children have the right to feel safe, secure and loved. Every child is a unique individual and no one approach works for all, I believe in collaborative partnerships with other families, educators, children and the local community so that together as a team, the best possible learning outcomes for children can be accomplished. These values and beliefs have only strengthened since become a Mum for the first time in 2012.
I am passionate and enthusiastic when it comes to learning environments and believe they should be used as the ‘third teacher’ to spark wonder, amazement and interest, whilst learning through play. I work closely with the team at the service and believe that strong, trusting and respectful relationships are the key to success.
I invite you to pop in and meet me and my wonderful team at Gungahlin Kinder Haven.
