Baby care at Aberglasslyn


We partner with you to provide a safe, quality, family-centred learning environment where every child is respected and nurtured. We continually develop our skills and explore new ways to enrich your child’s early learning experience.



Indoor and outdoor play based experiences are an integral part of our program. Educators plan a diverse range of experiences to create opportunities for your child in both structured and spontaneous play.

Aberglasslyn pre school


Our programs are inspired by the wisdom and teachings of early childhood theorists and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and aim to develop children’s emotional, social and cognitive intelligence.



The Kindergarten curriculum continues to emphasise play based learning, however offers additional intentional learning times where the focus is on literacy and numeracy, socialisation, self-regulation and independence.


What led you to a career in the childcare industry?
From an early age I knew I wanted to work with children. After I completed school I went straight to TAFE to complete my Certificate III and started my role as an assistant in a long day care setting. From here I was inspired and passionate and couldn’t wait to learn more. I worked my way up to complete my Diploma through TAFE and my Bachelor of Teaching degree from the University of New England. I have been in the Early Childhood sector for 11 years and during this time I have had the opportunity to work with all different age groups throughout various roles.

What are your favourite memories within the workspace?
One of my favourite memories over the past 3 months is the team building and professional development opportunity we had late last year with Pallet Play. This was an amazing opportunity were we were able to come together and work as a team to construct resources for children, this experience has inspired us to learn and create more as a team.

Who Inspires you and why?
I am inspired by positive leaders who share their knowledge and wisdom with me and encourage me to be the best leader that i can be. I am always willing to learn new things as their is always someone who will know more than me about certain topics, just like i am more than happy to share my knowledge and passion on topics that i am interested in or have knowledge in.


What are you passionate about?
I am a strong believer that children have the right to access a high quality education and that children learn best through play based experiences. I am passionate about community involvement, risky play, loose parts, natural learning environments and allowing children the opportunity to real life education.

What type of leadership style do you have?
My leadership style is to support the team to be successful and to work together as a team towards our centre vision and to uphold our philosophy. I continuously up skill my own skills and knowledge to best support the team to ensure we have current knowledge to ensure we are compliant and successful.

What makes your service such an amazing service?
We have a wonderful, supportive team of educators who pride ourselves on our relationships with children, families and our colleagues. We are constantly reflecting to ensure we provide the best possible opportunities for children to learn through our daily curriculum. We aim to create positive childhood memories for children, full of of adventure and opportunities to set them up for a successful future.
We have a positive culture within our service and are always celebrating specials events, getting out into the community on excursions and allowing children to just be children and have fun.

What are your goals for the service over the next 12 months?
To build a connection and ongoing relationship with learning for life at Maitland. To embed exceeding practices involving community, children and families across the centre. To value committed educators by supporting them in their professional development, knowledge and growth mindset.

Teaching Sustainability at Aberglasslyn

You may be surprised how strongly children can respond to information about environmental causes. Engaging them in discussions about matters that impact their world not only sets a foundation for critical thinking, but also empowers them to realise that together we can generate change.

Let Me Play a Little Longer

I believe that it is through play that children at a very early age engage and interact in the world around them. It’s always a joy to step back and watch children as their play evolves.
