Centre Manager - Great Beginnings Epping

“I believe children learn through play and being engaged in an inquiry-based environment. Our job is to facilitate these environments and scaffold their learning. ”

My career in early learning started in 2006. I joined Great Beginnings Epping in 2024. I hold a Diploma in Children's Service and am currently working towards a Bachelor of Education. 

I have been in the early childhood industry for over 20 years, first as a teacher in Fiji and then as an early childhood professional in Australia. My early childhood journey taught me that children can lead their learning. We, as educators, need to acknowledge and support it. My teaching practices are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. I believe children learn through play and being engaged in an inquiry-based environment. Our job is to facilitate these environments and scaffold their learning. Children have amazing imagination and creativity. As teachers, we are given the privilege to foster and contribute towards their positive learning dispositions and confident self-identities. 

A dedicated early childhood setting enables a child to form strong social relationships, negotiate roles and become a confident learner. It provides a platform to get them ready for school and community participation. That's our goal here in Great Beginnings Epping. We have an experienced team here who are dedicated to delivering the best outcomes for children. We build strong relationships with families through open and honest communication, acknowledging diversity, listening to families’ concerns and valuing their opinions.

We look forward to welcoming you at Great Beginnings Epping!
