What makes you passionate about working in childcare? Since I was a child I have held a passion to care for and educate young children and babies. I began assisting my mother in a Gym Crèche during the school holidays as a child myself. I then began babysitting and was a Group leader for the Brownie Guides at 14 years old. At 16 I began my career in After School Care, I would leave high school at 2.50pm and start my shift at 3pm.
I have always felt motherly and enjoy encouraging children to achieve their potential. It is so rewarding to know that I have assisted these sprouting individuals as they achieve goals in their young lives. A strong dedication and passion to help guide my educators, children, families and centre achieve grow and achieve their goals.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? Conversations with children whom are still learning to navigate the world and how things work can bring so much joy. A conversation with a school age child as we discussed what would happen if we had no more rain and no more water to drink to water the plants to grow our foods… Her response was that’s ok I’ll just turn on the tap. The same individual when asked to help her peers pack away stated that she couldn’t when asked why stated that her heart had stopped. So much innocence and potential.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? I am extremely proud of my centre, the homely feeling it has and the close-knit family of educators, children and families. The friendly, knowledgeable and passionate educators who understand the needs of children and families and support them anyway they can. Going above and beyond for families and children every day, providing amazing programs, incursions and excursions, creating a seriously fun and safe environment for the children to learn through play and become everything they dream to be.
