Meet the Number 47 Karimbla Rd Team

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.

 

Tonga

Assistant Director/Educational Leader 
Bachelor of Teaching (Birth to 5 years)

I believe that children thrive when they are nurtured and supported, cared for and loved from an early age. I believe that every child is different in their own unique and special way. I love to support children’s development through careful observation, working in partnership with families and meaningful planning and documentation of experiences. My goal is to ensure that children have a sense of belonging at Karimbla and to be happy in their learning environment. I believe working with my local community of Miranda in the Sutherland Shire extends on children's belonging, connection to place and life long community engagement.

 

Belynda

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

As an early childhood Teacher I believe that all children should be provided with high quality care and be given the same opportunities. I think it is important for children to respect, understand and learn to celebrate differences; whether it be the events that are celebrated, the languages spoken or the food that is eaten. I believe that it is important for children to understand multiculturalism and show respect for different cultures. I believe having the children’s voice implemented into the program will keep them captivated and bringing their interests from home will make our program broad.

As an educator I believe in providing a safe and fun environment for all the children. I believe having a nurturing approach will make children feel safe and secure while are Karimbla. I feel I have a responsibility in supporting and guiding young children in their learning and development. My aim for children is for them to be become independent, resilient and confident individuals who enjoy coming to preschool to learn and engage with new people.  

 

Katelyn

Trainee

I love working with children, It is all I have ever wanted to do. I will enjoy completing my Certificate 3 in Early Childhood education and care this year. I look forward to my journey ahead being able to support and watch your children grow. I have heard the saying “It takes a village to raise a child” and I am proud to be part of the Karimbla Village. I hope to be able to instill in the children a life-long love of learning and support the children to become caring and confident in everything they do. I believe I am here to support the children’s individual needs, interests and strengths and help teach the children respect for each other, respect for themselves and respect for their environment and show them respect by being a good role model. Early Childhood Education should be fun, if we are having fun then the children are having fun too. I love working with children in the early years and nurturing them while they grow and learn in a happy and caring environment.

 


Rachel

Certificate 3 Educator
Room Leader 2-3 years

I believe that all children are equal and should have the opportunity to be and become their own creative individual without restrictions or limitations. All children deserve to learn in a happy and safe environment with the affection and smiles from both educators and friends. My goal is to make sure the children have an understanding of other cultures and to be able to develop strong relationships with others whilst being encouraged to learn and grow. I feel as educators we play an important role in your children's lives as we encourage them to learn, explore and become both unique and special in their own way.

 
 

 

Georgia

Trainee

As an educator I believe that the first 5 years of a child’s life is critical to learning and that all children need to feel that they belong in an environment that they feel safe, secure and respected. I also believe that each child is a unique individual and that all children develop through their own pattern of growth and development. I believe that inclusion and cultural understanding is an important part of the curriculum and each child’s learning. I aim to support children’s self-confidence and self-esteem which is important in reaching their developmental milestones as well as providing a safe, nurturing environment where they can develop physically, mentally emotionally, spiritually and socially in order to reach their full potential.

Coming Soon!

As an Educator I believe it is important that children are loved and cared for as well as given the same opportunity as any other child. I also believe that children learn through play and I aim to provide a variety of educational play experiences in a safe and welcoming environment each and everyday. I believe all children learn and develop at different paces and it is important that all children are valued as individual learners.

 

 

Olivia

Diploma Educator
Room Leader 0-2 years

I believe that smiles are contagious, and every child should be given the opportunity to learn and develop in a loving and encouraging environment. Every day children will learn something new, and find out new things about the world we live in. They learn through their surroundings, that is why it is important they are always in a fun, happy and nurturing environment. We can achieve amazing things through kindness, dedication, tolerance and love. These values are what I believe in are the basis for a happy future and what I work towards achieving myself every day!
 

 

 

Abby

Certificate in Early Childhood Education and Care

Children should be given choices, responsibilities and opportunities to initiate their own learning. This brings confidence which leads to greater decision making and development of skills. I believe that children should be recognised as individuals with rights and allow them to be involved and included in an environment free from stereotypes, discrimination and judgement. I feel my role as an educator is to provide children with the learning environments, materials, and support their needs to explore and master knowledge and skills that will pave their way for future successes and endeavours.

 

Chelsea

Trainee

I believe that Early Childhood is the most integral part of a child’s upbringing, and it is vital as an educator to ensure every child is happy, well-adjusted and cared for. I believe every single child deserves a safe and positive environment where every child can feel free to express themselves, grow and learn, and are encouraged to appreciate their differences and learn from them.  

 


Grace

Certificate 3 in Early Childhood Education and Care

As an educator, it is my absolute pleasure to be able to provide a fun, interactive and safe environment where children are encouraged to learn, develop, discover and grow. My aim is to develop strong and meaningful relationships with children by encouraging them to explore their surroundings, experiment with materials and interact in play-based learning activities. I absolutely love having the opportunity to assist children in everyday learning activities which help them to develop their own unique skills, talents and personalities!   
 

 


Shannen

Centre Cook

Becoming a mother at a young age I realised how important it is for children to interact with other children in a social environment to help them develop and grow. I am excited to be a part of the children’s development whether it is preparing nutritious meals throughout the day, having conversations with the 3-5 years children through my window or lending a helping hand in the 0-2 year’s room.
