Childcare Centre Manager - Great Beginnings Byford
“I feel privileged every day to be a part of such a rewarding role where I can engage with children and families.”
I began my career in early childhood education and care in 2000. I have been leading a team for a number of years now with over twenty years’ experience working with children and families. I hold a Diploma of Children’s Services.
My passion has always been working with children and families, building strong relationships and being a part of each child’s individual learning and development journey. I feel privileged every day to be in such a rewarding role where I can engage with children and families and support them through the early years. I have learnt that children are individuals and have different needs. I love that children learn through play and watching their interests develop into dispositions for learning which guides my teaching style and responsiveness to children.
All childcare centres, including our centre, use the foundation of play-based learning to guide our experiences every day. With access to a range of age-appropriate learning resources, trained educators, and new experiences among friends, we set children up to thrive in an environment that is dedicated to learning.
Children develop their curiosity, problem-solving, confidence and resilience at our centre, and we carefully plan play-based learning experiences around their interests and learning goals. Over time, you will see your child develop abilities such as language, motor movement, memory, concentration and social relationships all by partaking in these experiences - it's a truly incredible journey to witness!
I have a team of dedicated and passionate educators who are committed to providing high-quality care and learning for all the children within our service. My team members are long-standing educators with a variety of knowledge and cultural diversity that they share with everyone within the service. Our team understands just how important your children are to you and we ensure we take our responsibilities seriously. Great Beginnings Early Education Centres has extensive policy and procedures in place to assist our team in protecting children in our care.
I am so eager to meet new families as they begin their early learning journey. Choosing an early learning and care service for your family can be a very hard decision, I have built a strong enrolment and orientation program within the centre to help you make your decision about care and transition into care as smoothly as possible.
