What is your name?
How long have you been working in childcare?
I have been in the Early Childcare and Education sector for the past 16 years in a variety of settings, including family day care, preschool and long day care.
What is your favourite part of working at the centre?
I most enjoy seeing the excitement of children when they make a discovery or have learnt something new. I also enjoy the relationships that I build with children, families and the educators.
What qualifications do you hold?
I hold a Bachelor of Early Childhood Degree
What are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about giving children the best possible opportunities to learn and grow, by having secure and stable relationships with their caregivers provides the foundations of a child’s ability to feel confident in their surroundings and from this point learning happens.
I am also passionate about the fact that we never stop learning, so I am an avid reader and love to research a variety of philosophies and theories relating to early childhood, I then take the parts that resonate with me and use them in my everyday life and practices with children.
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
“Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write and count. It is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace that is right for each individual child. Earlier is not better” – Magda Gerber
As a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
I don’t recall a time when I didn’t want to work with children, I always had ambitions to work in the early childhood sector and have children of my own.

“Just started at this daycare and have found them very professional. Their email system is brilliant way to communicate with busy parents. I have also found all their group leaders and assistance genuinely interested in children. They have excursion to fantastic places. The kids don’t come back hungry either! Have moved from one-day care to come to this one and waiting for more days! Would definitely recommend this centre.”
