What makes you passionate about working in childcare?
Education is something that I have always been drawn to. Even when I was a young child I wanted to be a teacher, I wanted to educate young children. And while it didn't take me too long to figure out my path in life after obtaining my HSC, I quickly found my place within a centre, started my traineeship and eleven amazing years later I am now a teaching director enjoying the journey though the early childhood sector and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I am committed to ongoing professional development, and ensuring that the service that we offer to the community is of a high quality. I truly believe that teaching is more than a job, it’s a service. Teaching and serving families takes passion, energy, time, understanding, and love.
What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? The highlights of my days at work are when I see a child’s eyes light up when they learn/try something new, it makes every day worth it. Memorable moments happen daily when our children are waiting to see you, arms wide, with a beaming smile and ready for a big warm hug, it warms my heart.
Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Our centre prides itself on a warm, safe, family fun atmosphere and environment. We are blessed to have such open learning environments for our children to explore and develop. My team and I are all committed to providing high quality education and care whilst having some serious fun! With a strong team we work very hard to help guide children to grow and develop. We create environments in which children can learn more about the world around them and how things work. We do our best to help families keep children healthy and safe! 
We are educated professionals helping shape the world for young children, and preparing them for future successes in school and in life!
