Geraldine

I began my career in 1998. I joined the team at Great Beginnings Mt Clear in 2023. I hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education. My experience in the sector includes working my way up from an assistant educator to a room leader, 2IC and Director. I also spent time working for child protection but returned to centre-based education. I strive to bring my broad experience, passion, knowledge, and dedication to this important role. 

During my career I have learnt that every child is unique. As educators, we should embrace their individuality. Here at Great Beginnings Mt Clear, we respect and nurture each child and their individuality. We want children’s early years to be a time of discovery, exploration and development of lifelong learning skills. The team here provides a safe and secure environment and embraces each child and family to empower their sense of belonging. The educators and children within the service are our extended family. We endeavour to ensure that the relationships we build are based on trust and communication, as the children see us almost every day and need to know that they are safe and cared for. Our approach is child-led, meaning when a child asks or shows an interest in playing with water, dirt, paint, or something equally messy, we say yes! For every child, high quality early childhood education and care can assist children to have the best start in life. The team within the service can deal with all the mess and clean up! Early childhood education and care can provide important opportunities to learn and develop by helping your child make friends, develop independence and learn new routines. 

The team are working together to build strong connections within the service and the community. From the moment you walk in the door, you are greeted with a friendly "good morning" and made to feel welcome. The team here are always up for a chat and eager to be informed on anything that can assist us with engaging and aiding the development of each child.
