Our People

Our educators are here to welcome your child into their first few learning years with the enthusiasm and passion that is essential when working with small children. We aim to create a learning environment that encompasses both indoor and outdoor activities and the use of all five senses.

Our staff attend monthly program meetings which are used as a basis for continuous improvement within each room. The cycle of observation, evaluation and planning helps staff to remain responsive to children’s needs. All of our staff also undertake regular updates to their training to ensure we continue to provide the best possible care for our children.

What makes you passionate about working in childcare?
Being a part of such a warm and inviting environment where I work with some of the best educators is a huge contributing factor. Every day I get to come in and get inspired by families, children and fellow educators.
It’s so amazing that I can form connections to such wonderful families from our community and watch and help their children grow and develop into amazing confidant participants in our community.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare?
My most memorable moment was the first year I got to watch my children graduate from kindergarten ready for primary school.
In that moment it had made me so proud as I had been able to be a part of their lives. I got to watch as each of the children went from being shy children who had just stepped into the Kindergarten Studio grow and develop into beautiful confidant human beings, each showing bravery and courage as they walked up to collect their graduation certificate. It was one of the proudest feelings in my life.
