We believe that the value of play is of utmost importance to children as it is their way of learning about their world.
While children play they are able to experiement with new ideas, test theories and their understanding of concepts, express their creative ability, release their emotions and share their feelings.
While engaging in play children are developing across all domains and creating the building blocks for their future.
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.
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?
My Mum and Aunty worked in Early Education when I was younger. I loved going to the service with them and spending time with the Children. When I was old enough I begun my cert 3 course and went straight from School to work in a service. I love that every day is different and that the Children are always happy to see you when you walk in, in the morning.
What are your favourite memories within the workspace?
Being apart of the construction works in our service, being able to share and collaborate with the families and build relationships with them because of these works.
Who Inspires you and why?
My Mum. She has always worked hard and gone above and beyond to ensure that everyone has everything they need.
What are you passionate about?
Adventure! I love to get out and go on spontaneous adventures, I want my son to be provided with lots of opportunities to learn about the world and to not be afraid to explore. I think that this translates into my work, especially when I’m with the Children. I love watching them take considered risks, step out of their comfort zone and see them achieve goals they have been working towards.
What type of leadership style do you have?
I believe I am approachable, flexible and supportive. I like to challenge my team to always be doing their best and to work hard at achieving their goals. I think that I am inclusive and provide my co-workers with the opportunity to thrive and grow in their careers.
What makes your service such an amazing service?
I love that I have a team of Educators who all aspire to grow. Everyone here has a goal and with the right support I believe that they will get there. I think that being surrounded by these people is uplifting and provides a productive workspace.
What are your goals for the service over the next 12 months?
My goals is to create an exceeding service, to embed ourselves in our community and to support our Educators to be the best in the industry.
