Qualifications: Diploma Early Childhood Education and Care

What makes you passionate about Early Childhood Education? I believe that children have rights and should have an opportunity to be able to express those rights in any way. I believe that it is our job as early childhood educators to be a voice and an advocate for these young people. Our job is to nurture and guide children to use their own voices and become the little person they want to be. Children bring joy and laughter, and it is our job to make sure they keep smiling and keep laughing. I am also passionate about providing a fun, exciting and educational learning program that can help children grow and learn and that can focus on their interests to further their development and potential.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Something that we are all so proud of at our center here in Castle Hill is our relationships with families. We go out of our way to ensure parents feel comfortable about dropping their child off each day into our care. We have honest and open relationships with our families each and every day. Families in our center know they can contact us any time for whatever reason, and we will always be available for them. We are proud of our center for many reasons, we are proud that we are a family friendly center with a close team of educators who have been working here for a long time, some for over 8 years.
