Elise

Centre Director
Nominated Supervisor
Bachelor of Education (Birth to Twelve)

As an Early Childhood Educator I believe all children are equal and unique in their own way. Every child deserves to be treated in a positive and nurturing manner. I believe it is vital for all children to feel safe, supported and secure in their environment. This will enable each child to develop a sense of belonging and trust. I believe developing positive relationships with the children is vital. The more we know about each child, the more we can extend their learning and assist them in reaching their goals. I believe in providing an educational and stimulating learning environment for the children to engage in. The educators should be positive, caring, supportive and respectful in order to enable the children to feel loved and to learn and develop at their fullest potential. I believe the children's learning environment should be a happy and fun place, full of life and motivating. They should be allowed to engage in open ended play experiences that allow them to express themselves comfortably. I believe communicating with families regularly is necessary for the benefit of the child to ensure the child's needs and interests are met. 
 

 


Monica

Educational Leader
Bachelor of Education (Birth to Twelve)

Young children are so full of wonderment and curiosity and as an Early Childhood Teacher I strive to support these natural traits by creating a classroom culture that encourages children to explore, make discoveries, be creative and experience the excitement of mastering new skills and broadening their knowledge of the world around them. I believe in creating a collaborative learning environment where my students and I teach and learn together. Children have just as much to teach us, as we can teach them. I am passionate about supporting children’s love of learning, and work hard at making sure each child in my care feels valued and celebrated. I believe that quality education and care is a collaborative job shared between families and teachers. I want to work together with families to provide their children with learning opportunities that are meaningful and beneficial to them as an individual and that provide the support they need to grow into kind and confident global citizens. I want to encourage my students to chase their dreams, learn from mistakes and to always aim to try something new every day.

 


Maddison

Bachelor of Education (The Early Years)
Early Childhood Teacher/
Room Leader 3-5's Room

I believe that relationships can make all the difference in children’s lives. Strong connections between children, educators, families and the wider community can have such a positive impact on children’s development. When educators understand children and their wider contexts, they can plan for their learning based on their individual needs, strengths, interests and cultures. I believe that children are more involved in their learning when they feel safe and supported and this can be achieved by educators who know them well. I believe that children are capable learners who learn through purposeful play and hands-on exploration. I believe that adults should have high expectations for children as they are often able to meet and exceed these when given the chance. I believe we can learn a lot from our children and that relationships can positively benefit everyone!

Each child is an individual who will grow and develop in their own time and way. At the heart of our work with children is meaningful relationships. Relationships between children, Educators and families allow children to feel safe, secure and supported as they learn and grow. I believe it is the Educators role to respect and respond to each child’s unique, ever-evolving needs and interests. We must always celebrate children's imagination and curiosity - because when children are encouraged to play and explore their interests, they delight in the learning process, motivating them to continue.

 
 

 


Kirstie

Diploma of Early Education and Care

As an early childhood educator we are developing the young minds of our future, which is why it is truly a passion of mine, watching each individual child thrive in a safe ,secure and happy environment. Becoming a mum has shown me how important this is in a whole new light. 

 

I believe that no two children will learn in the exact same way, providing opportunities and experiences to cater for each child to flourish to their full potential. My goal is to ensure that each child feels safe and supported in their learning environment and free to express themselves, While also working alongside families and the community to extend on feeling a sense belonging and staying connected to our outside world. 



 


Alison

Diploma of Children’s Services
 
I believe in the importance of self-expression through painting, drawing, dance, discussions, creative play and especially through music. I strive to provide children with choices and opportunities to create their own learning throughout their environment and explore and discover the world around them. By creating a nurturing and fun learning environment, I aim to prepare children with the life skills needed to master new challenges, express ideas, gain independence and be capable and confident learners in the future.
 

 


Claire

Diploma of Early Education and Care

Room Leader 2-3 years

I believe that all children should be provided with high quality care and the opportunity to learn. All children should learn in a happy, encouraging, friendly and healthy environment. Children learn through their surroundings, through play and through the encouragement of their friends, their teachers and their families. With the right guidance from other’s, children will grow up to encourage, change and help the world. Children are the future! I believe that you can’t change the world, but you can start in your own little corner of the world, this is possible through teaching children. We can achieve amazing and wonderful things through happiness, love, tolerance, fun, belief and the will to constantly learn. I believe that all of these things are important in a child’s life and I hope to achieve this.

Imogen

I still have a great memory from my years at preschool. We have many challenges in society today and I believe it is especially important to teach good values and positive relationships in young children at an early age as well as in an educational environment. I love young children and watching them grow and develop in areas such as language skills and self-confidence which is extremely rewarding.

 

 


Stephanie

Trainee  

I believe nurturing and caring for young minds is one of the most crucial parts of early-stage development. Creating fun and engaging ways for children to explore their individuality whilst also letting them express their own feelings and emotions, teaching them to be a part of a group and interacting with others in a friendly and caring manner is of high importance. Helping children to develop and grow their minds, bodies and souls to be the best they can be for their future. I aim to provide a safe and comfortable environment for the children to learn and thrive to the greatest of their ability. Helping children to find themselves as a person, who they are and who they want to be is extremely fulfilling and rewarding.

I believe that the environment and space children are surrounded in influences their attitude and behaviours of life. My goals in becoming an Early Childhood Educator are to create a safe, fun, playful, loving and caring space for children to grow, learn and develop in their own time All children are different and have unique ways of learning and adapting to their environment. I also believe in the importance of healthy relationships and special bonds between educators and families to assist in showing them key qualities like kindness, patience, compassion and love. I aim to encourage and support children to fully develop into their unique selves while having fun along the way.

I believe this is vital for children’s young minds as it will assist in shaping who they will become in the future. I believe children thrive off our support, good teaching practices and positive relationships. I love being able to teach children the important key qualities in life such as compassion, social skills, creativity, resilience and so much more.

Roberta

Centre Cook

Being a mother of 5 children can bring its own challenges, especially when dealing with 5 different personalities. But to know that in some way, I have shaped and nurtured these children into the adults they will become is undeniably the strongest emotion in the human soul.
I believe, to be apart of any child's life in a positive way and to know that you may have taught them a new skill, or to read, created a long lasting memory, surprise them with your knowledge, made a meal they will remember or just make them smile makes it all worthwhile.
Behind every child who believe in themselves is a parent or teacher who believed first!
