What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I love playing a role in the early years of children lives. I believe these are the most important years and building strong foundations is critical for all children, and most importantly to be an advocate for the children who attend the centre, as I am passionate about children’s health and safety and their right to be safe and respected as small humans.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcareToo Many 😊  I do recall a child handing me a rock and asking me to look after it for them. As the child went to walk away they stopped, turned and said “but don’t eat it”….!
 
Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? We have wonderful, caring staff and as a team we are consistently improving the environments, and working towards improving our skills and knowledge.

Fun Fact about you: I love to clean… !
