What are you passionate about?
My passion is to ensure all staff who I work alongside are mentored and nurtured to become the most successful and sought-after professionals within the industry. My belief is that if you nurture your staff with knowledge and success, they will therefore then nurture the children to become emotionally well rounded and highly educated individuals.

What type of leadership style do you have?
I focus on identifying and nurturing the individual strengths of each member on my team. I also focus on strategies that will enable my team work better together. I strive to put more emphasis on the growth and success of individual employees, rather than forcing all employees to focus on similar skills and goals, I focus on building a team where each employee has an expertise or skill set in something different. In the long run, I focus on creating a strong team that can communicate well and embrace each other’s unique skill sets in order to support children’s development.

What makes your service such an amazing service?
Staff are given opportunities to grow and develop professionally and personally. They are supported to implement innovative ideas and strategies within the learning environments and are given opportunities to have an input on how the operation of the service is maintained.

What are your goals for the service over the next 12 months?
Building utilisation to 100%. Implementing some amazing excursion for the children into the community. Building the reputation of the service within Brisbane.

OUR BRISBANE CITY CHILDCARE SERVICE OPPOSITE ROMA STREET STATION

A Queensland Government Kindergarten Approved Program

Our centre welcomes families from surrounding suburbs including Paddington, Spring Hill, Teneriffe and South Brisbane. We offer a small boutique service right in the heart of the Brisbane CBD.

At Story House Roma Street Brisbane City, we understand the importance of child-educator relationships. We have capped our enrolments at no more than 40 children. That’s less than half the size of other child care centres in the Brisbane CBD.

Our small size allows us to build strong personal connections. We can take the time to get to know you, and develop positive, caring relationships between our educators and your child.
