Centre Manager - Great Beginnings Pimpama
“Each child is an individual and needs to be supported as an individual.”
I began my early childhood education and care career in 1995. I started working at great Beginnings Pimpama in June 2021 after relocating from Adelaide, where I also worked for the same company.
I have over 25 years of experience within the childcare sector and hold a Diploma in Children’s Services.
Growing up with younger siblings, I knew that I wanted to work with children from a very young age. I love being able to develop a nurturing and positive relationship with both children and families and leading a team of educators who are committed to providing an environment in which children can learn, grow and explore.
Throughout my career, I have learned that all children given the right opportunities and support to explore, discover, create, and imagine can grow and develop to their full potential. Each child is individual and needs to be supported as an individual. During my teaching career, the one thing that I have come to value is the importance of play because it is through play; children have fun, explore, and learn. Children are also fantastic teachers!
My approach towards helping children on their learning journey is by being warm and welcoming towards all children and their families. I like to ensure that a child’s family is included and involved in their learning to ensure the best and appropriate outcome for the children. I find that to achieve this, communication and strong and respectful relationships with children and their families are a vital part of a child’s learning.
