Meet the Centre Manager – Mary Harvey
I began my career in early childhood education and care over 30 years ago. Both teaching and managing centres.
I hold a Bachelor of Teaching Degree, Diploma in Business Management, Child Protection Qualification, First Aid, Asthma and Anaphylaxis, and current CPR
Food Safety Supervisor Certificate, and many other certificates be relating to Early Childhood Education and Care and I’m trained in Child Protection and First Aid. In my free time, I also do a lot of reading on early education to be able to provide the best guidance and assistance to families, my centre, employees and of course the children.
From a very young age I always wanted to become a teacher. You could say I have my dream job. I get inspired every day by the children, watching them learn and grow so much through play is the best experience ever.
All childcare centres, including our centre, use the foundation of play-based learning to guide our experiences every day. With access to a range of age-appropriate learning resources, trained educators, and new experiences among friends, we set children up to thrive in an environment that is dedicated to learning.
Children develop their curiosity, problem-solving, confidence and resilience at our centre, and we carefully plan play-based learning experiences around their interests and learning goals. Over time, you will see your child develop abilities such as language, motor movement, memory, concentration and social relationships all by partaking in these experiences – it’s a truly incredible journey to witness!
Our team understands just how important your children are to you and we ensure we take our responsibilities seriously. Kinder Haven Centres have extensive policy and procedures in place to assist our team in protecting children in our care.
My passion is to run a centre which provides high quality care for young children, within a happy safe environment were children learn through play. It is my belief that children who are not happy will not learn, so ensuring children feel safe and happy will allow them to learn.
