MEET OUR SERVICE MANAGER Chay Slattery

What led you to a career in the childcare industry?
I started some 15 years ago in Sydney as a young lady working as a trainee in a childcare service. From there I have worked my way up in the industry from room assistant. Room leader educational leader kindy teacher 2IC Assistant Director and Director. My love of children and the freedom and joy they bring to our souls is what drew me in initially.

What are your favourite memories within the workspace?
My favourite memories are always the funny things the children say. Some naughty some hillarious some just so cute. But recently on my very first day as service manager at Storyhouse Deception Bay a beautiful little boy came up to me hugged me and said welcome to my kindy; to me this was just lovely to see how comfortable and happy this child was at this service and how welcome and included he made me feel within a second.

Who Inspires you and why?
I’m inspired by my late grandparents Gordon Nay and Dorothy Nay. They had such a warmth about them that was so inviting even a stranger to dinner felt like family in their home. They never judged people but guided and praised and helped many local families charities and people worldwide find homes come closer together and feel accepted and welcome for who they are.
