Ashley

Centre Director
Nominated Supervisor
Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education)
 
I believe children and families are the foundation of our service and play a vital role in our program and the children’s learning within the centre. I believe through our strong partnership and collaboration with families we are able to develop our goals and provide consistency between the centre and the child’s home life to enrich and enhance each child’s learning. Each child is valued as an individual and respected and valued for their uniqueness. I believe that staff are educators and play an important role in the future of our children, educators are active contributors in children’s learning, who through meaningful interaction and learning experiences provide a curriculum which actively supports learning and development of children at every stage. I believe that a learning environment should be fulfilling, enriching and supporting of all learning and growing opportunities. Our environment is aesthetically pleasing and encourages learning, development and free choice through rich materials, resources and surroundings. 

 


Elise

Assistant Director
Room Leader 3-5 years
Bachelor of Teaching (Birth to 12 years)

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

Studying Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education and Primary)

Working in early childhood education tasks my  colleagues and I with teaching the citizens of the future. I am in a position to make profound and positive impacts on children’s development at the most critical time of their lives and help lay the foundation for learning and well being that they with carry with them into the future. It is a job that I am passionate about and enjoy immensely.  I am an advocate for children’s right to a safe, secure and supportive space to learn and grow and I strive to provide a learning environment and 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 the power of working with families in order to provide the best possible learning environment for their children, one in which the child’s unique culture, lived experiences, abilities and interests are acknowledged and celebrated. I want to encourage my students to chase their passions, be considerate, be honest, be brave (to try new things and make mistakes) and of course…  to learn something new every day.

 
 

 

 

Alysse

Certificate 3

I aim to provide a caring, safe and exciting environment that is welcoming, warm and inclusive of all cultures, nationalities and abilities. A place where children are comfortable and confident to engage in learning relationships with their educators and peers. I believe classrooms must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where children can meet their full potential.  




 


Keziah

Early Childhood Teacher

I believe that early childhood education is the basis for the teaching that children will receive for the rest of their life. As an early childhood teacher, I’m passionate in allowing for the best quality learning whilst children are on our care. As a teacher, I love helping and watching children learn, but I also believe in the importance of learning from children as well as teaching them. Children have so much that they can teach us as educators, and it is important to listen and learn from them as well as the other way around. I also believe children come into our care with prior knowledge and it is our responsibility to build and scaffold upon this learning to help children reach their full potential. I believe in using the environment as another educator for children. Setting up engaging and interest-based experiences allows us to observe and build upon children learning as we watch them in their environment. I’m passionate about early childhood education and believe that we have such a privilege in getting to be involved in children’s lives and watch them grow and learn! 



 


Alison

Diploma of Children’s Services
Room Leader 0-2 years

 
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 in Early Education and Care

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.
 
 
 

 


Luciana

Certificate 3 in Early Education and Care

I believe that every child can discover, explore and create an adventure as they learn. Helping support children’s development is a special experience I love to be a part of allowing me to help children grow and learn. Every child is special and unique in their own little way. My goal is to ensure that children at Karimbla Early Learning Centre can develop, grow, learn, are loved, cared for, supported and belong. 



 


Kirsty

Certificate 3 in Children’s Services  

I believe that every child as an individual deserves a safe, fun and well supervised environment in which they can learn through, play and grow. As an educator I will value and develop each child's strengths, interests, skills, abilities and knowledge to extend their learning. I believe that early childhood education is fundamental for future learning. I also wish to provide a total learning environment where children are free to observe, question experiment and explore.


 
 
 

 


Jessica

Trainee 

I believe that every child, as an individual, deserves a safe and fun environment to learn and grow as a person. I hope to provide a comfortable and engaging experience for the children to learn and express themselves in a fun and creative way.   I believe we need to prepare children with the proper life skills to gain independence and be able to get through obstacles in life. It is very rewarding and satisfying to be an educator for the next generation and see them grow and to see the children develop their full potential. It is such a privilege to be apart and involved in each individual child’s life.

 

 


Heu

Trainee   

"Children are not things to be moulded, but are people to be unfolded." Every child deserves a chance to be supported, cared for and nurtured from an early age. My goal as an educator is to help children self express from within and develop strong relationships in a safe and fun environment.
 

 


Maria

Trainee   

I have always been interested in teaching and motivating the next generation, so to be able to be a child care teacher is both satisfying and rewarding industry to be in. Being able to teach a child a new skill to then watch them play and see how far there imagination goes makes me love what I do and definitely puts a smile on our faces when you see the children accomplish and be proud of the new skills they have learnt. I love what Karimbla’s values stand for and knowing that the children here are going to grow up and lead the next generation is what I love here.

 

 


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 nutured 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, suprise 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!

 



 

 

Cody

Trainee

I believe that all children should have the best opportunities to learn and to feel comfortable in their environment, where they should be free to express their emotions, talents and knowledge. My role as a training educator is to create a safe, loving and fun experience for all children under our care. I am passionate about children and how they grow to learn about themselves and others. “The best education is not given to students; it is drawn out of them.”
