While engaging in play children are developing across all domains and creating the building blocks for their future.

MEET OUR SERVICE MANAGER HELEN EDWARDS

What led you to a career in the childcare industry?
Romper Room…watching this program as a young girl, inspired me to become an early childhood educator. I would sit with my teddies and dollies when i was a young girl and pretend to be their teacher. Starting my career in child care at the age of 18, i have always been passionate about the development and well being of young children. Many, many years later the enthusiasm has not altered. I have the best career.

What are your favourite memories within the workspace?
A new Mum, leaving her daughter for the first time in child care, giving me a big hug and thanking me for the support she felt. The overwhelming feeling of trust this Mamma instilled in us, was a wonderful feeling and a memory that wont be forgotten.

Who Inspires you and why?
My team of educators…always enthusiastic and passionate about the children in their care. Always creating exciting environment for the children and watching them involve in their learning. Always inspires me.

What are you passionate about?
Health and Well being in early childhood. Providing a balance of good physical health, feelings of happiness, satisfaction and successful social functioning. It influences the way children interact in their environments. A strong sense of well being provides children with confidence and optimism which maximise their learning potential.

What type of leadership style do you have?
I am very understanding and fair and believe we are all equal as a team. I love to help out wherever i am needed and enjoy stepping back into the rooms and engaging with the children. I am a very positive person and love to share my enthusiasm with everyone around me.

What makes your service such an amazing service?
The relationship I and my team of educators have with our families, creating a close community within our service, inspires me and excites me to come to work every day.

What are your goals for the service over the next 12 months?
I would like to create a beach themed, relaxed atmosphere at our service. We live in the most beautiful area of Australia and would like to share the benefits of sun, sea, beach air and surf. We will create Beach Kinder outings, allowing the children to walk to our local beach on a weekly basis providing rich learning environments. We will continue our journey of the inter generational relationship between young and old, visiting the aged care monthly, providing an immense sense of love and satisfaction to both parties. And lastly, my goals for the next 12 months would be to continue to provide the best service for our children.
