What makes you passionate about working in childcare? 

Challenging: I thrive on a challenge and working with children provides me many of these

Rewarding: working with children provides many rewards, it is a chance to see children flourish in their development and become confident, independent learners.

Fun:  A occupation that involves working with children is a fun one. I love to get messy with children and help them learn through play.

Working with others: It’s a career that provides many opportunities to work with others

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? Probably the time a child asked me why babies come from a cabbage patch as that’s where Mum and Dad had told her that her baby brother had come from.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? We are passionate early childhood educators with many years’ experience, and we inspire and nurture individuality in every child.
