What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about early childhood studies and child development and I strongly believe in making a positive difference in every child’s life. I believe, the first five years of a child’s life make a big impact on their overall development and their future love of learning. As a Service Manager, I really love the role of being able to work alongside, coach and mentor the team as well as maintain a nurturing and supportive environment for all the children, families and educators. I strongly believe that maintaining positive and nurturing environment is key for growth and development for all.

My leadership style is a hands on mentor.
What makes your service such an amazing service?
the friendly, caring and dedicated educators! Also, our fabulous engaging indoor and outdoor environments.
What are your goals for the service over the next 12 months?
Families are the first and most important influence on a child’s development and well-being. In my opinion the best Early Years Learning Programs that I have experiences, are programs with lots of family input. Families are the ones who fully understand their child, their personality and their interests. Joint decision making, shared learning and collaboration are very important to support and guide children to the best possible learning outcomes. As we are still new, we look forward to meeting new children and families and getting to know them. Our goal for the next 12 months will be to connect the families input more within the programs.
We are looking for a highly skilled Early Childhood Teacher to join our Noble Park team. We are looking for a Teacher who aligns with our philosophies and is not only able to provide engaging educational programs for the children but has the drive to make this the best centre in the community. This is a full-time position within our Kinder (4 – 5 years) room with quality programming, access to a healthy professional development budget, well resourced centre and career growth. Whilst ensuring the requirements are being met, you have the freedom to implement your own learning program and showcase your skills to make a difference for our respected families.
