Investigating and exploring through play and other creative experiences will allow children to grow and us as educator will grow and learn from them. My aim is to provide a Welcoming environment for both the children and families to allow a happy, trusting and supporting community..

My belief as an educator is that all children should be given choices, responsibilities, and opportunities to initiate their own learning to develop at their own pace.

Miss Alesdra

The Early Childhood industry has taught me that children especially in their early years, need a warm, fun, and exciting environment for them to learn and grow. It is important that we as educators’ help create this for the children, providing them with many opportunities for them to learn and grow through exploration, creativity, music, dancing, and getting dirty. Continually fostering and encouraging their growth in all developmental areas. I believe that each child is unique and it is our responsibility to ensure that we take all considerations necessary to help each child in their journey to becoming a competent and confident learner of life. As an educator it is the moments of my childhood where it was the feeling of safety and the confidence to make choices and have fun in my education setting that I remember, this is what I want the children that I care for to remember about their time in our environment. That their educator is fun and familiar and is focused on them and their happiness. The childcare industry has been the largest part of my working life and I owe some of the best experiences in my life to it, I plan to continue for another decade playing, learning and growing from the children and helping them gain the building blocks they need to become wonderful learners of life.
Bachelor of Early Childhood Teacher

Miss Patti

I believe that children are innately inquisitive, curious thinkers of the world around them. They thrive on rich engaging and active experiences which foster their development and developing sense of self. I see my role as being a facilitator; guiding, supporting and providing a caring, safe positive environment that nurture children’s development

The environment plays a key role in the success of an early childhood program. The environment enhances the children’s interests in all developmental domains. I believe learning in an early childhood setting is most successful through stations that can be visited, explored, and revisited over and over again. The environment needs to take into consideration the social skills, communication skills, physical abilities or challenges, and learning styles of the children being served.

I am committed to working in partnership with families to create open, honest and respectful relationships, as well as respecting families’ cultures and beliefs.

As an educator, I believe in providing an environment where children can share ideas, discover their individuality and be stimulated through the resources the centre provides. I aim to work in collaboration with parent, peers and children, helping to build trust, friendship and a sense of belonging within our community. I am passionate about working with children as they are active learners, who take on all challenges through social interactions and play.

Miss Shanny

As a chef,  I believe that healthy eating is the key to fuelling children’s bodies and minds. Positive attitudes toward food and developing healthy eating habits helps cultivate and encourage children’s growth, physical development and healthy brain functioning. Good nutrition underpins children’s holistic development and the eating habits formed in early childhood significantly influence our eating habits as adults.

As a childhood educator, my philosophy is about building on children’s interests to help facilitate their learning and supplying healthy meals to support their brain function.

Miss Natarsha

As an Educator, I believe it is my job to give the Children the love, respect and care that they need when they are in the childcare environment. As a mother of three children I feel I have a great understanding of how the children are feeling and when they need some extra love. I believe in allowing the children to direct their learning through play by allowing them to make the choice about what they want to play with, I also am a big believer in routines, if the routine is kept the same each day the children come to know what is happening and when, but also allowing for flexibility as working with children is not always predictable.

I believe children are the ones who make this world a beautiful place. In order to support them, I strive to provide a safe, comfortable, stimulating, fun and educational environment with a structured day plans. I aim to help children develop confidence and positive self-esteem throughout their learning. I value and respect each child’s ethnicity, their cultural background, and beliefs. I will help them to learn to respect and value each person’s belief’s and ethical values. I believe that it is important to talk with children about their emotions and Reponses to events with a view to supporting their understanding of emotional regulation and self-control, explained by Kohlberg’s Moral Development theory.

Children learn and develop at an individual rate and I believe that by providing a welcoming, supportive, stimulating and homely place where the children can express their thoughts and feelings freely, gives them the best opportunity to create strong relationships, gain confidence and develop into individual and respectful young people.

I love to encourage self esteem and confidence building, by showing each child that their existence is a precious gift. I enjoy encouraging and motivating children to be all that they can be to reach their dreams through a limitless mindset. I get great pleasure in playing a pivotal part in the children’s developmental milestones and witness them mature and develop.
