Centre Manager - Great Beginnings Halls Head
“I am passionate about giving children the best start in life as the first 5 years in a child’s life are the most important.”I began my career in early childhood education and care in 2006 and started working at Great Beginnings Halls Head in 2020. I have completed a Diploma of Children’s Services in both Scotland and Australia. I have worked with all age groups in small and large centres.
I started my apprenticeship in early childhood as soon as I left school, It was always something that I have been passionate about. I love watching the children grow and thrive every day. My teaching style is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. I believe that the environment is the third teacher and that children learn best through play and discovery. I am passionate about giving children the best start in life as the first 5 years in a child’s life are the most important.
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!
Our team at Great Beginnings Halls Head are a close-knit team of dedicated passionate educators. Who strive to provide a homely environment for all children to grow and learn in. We have a multicultural team from all different backgrounds. Many who have been with the centre since it opened.
Our team understands just how important your children are to you and we ensure we take our responsibilities seriously. Great Beginnings has extensive policy and procedures in place to assist our team in protecting children in our care. You can read more about our commitment to safety here.
I am passionate about developing positive relationships with all families to ensure that everyone feels comfortable within our centre. Our door is always open for any questions and enquiries. Our friendly and approachable management is always happy to assist in any way that they can.
We show support to our families by inviting our parents to celebrate special events at the centre with their children which include Mother’s Day and Father’s day.
I always try my best to take the time to get to know each family and their children. During orientation visits families get a chance to get to know our educators and the environment that their child will be in. We share ongoing communication and moments with families throughout the day through our all in one family app.
We look forward to welcoming you at Great Beginnings Halls Head.
