Our people

We are a friendly and lively learning community. As highly qualified educators, we take our work seriously. We know how to deliver a stable, consistent curriculum, while giving each child the individual attention they need. It’s an honour to experience part of a child’s early years, helping them to transform by developing the skills, interests and opinions that will form the basis of a lifetime of experiences. This is why we are so interested in your child’s individual personality, perspective and talents.

Our goal is to inspire confidence and resilience in children, helping them to develop social, spiritual and emotional wellbeing. We believe that families are the most important part of a child’s life. We’re here to support you and your child and work with you to help them along the road to ‘big school’. Whenever you have an idea, opinion, or suggestion, we’re ready to listen and include it in our programming.

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? The passion I get working with children is their smiles and innocence. Coming to work every morning and seeing children smile and laugh makes me passionate and love my work. When a child achieves a developmental milestone and seeing that sparkle in their eyes once they finally achieved it is the best feeling. It makes me feel I've made a difference to an individual and what I do is meaningful. Before I even knew how to spell teacher I wanted to be one. I would pretend to be a classroom teacher in front of my bedroom mirror and copy what my real teacher would do. Since then I have never forgotten her and the impact she made in my life. I wish to be a positive role model too and imprint my love, teachings and care on each child that I care for. 

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? There are many memorable and funny moments but the best one so far is when a child with cerebral palsy in the nursery was learning to move around the room. He was unique and the most loving boy I had come across. He would struggle to move from one side of the room to the next. Helping him learn how to move around and engage with other children was the most memorable moment. He spent all his five early years with us and seeing him grow from a infant to a preschool graduate was the most memorable moment. He grew up to be the most intelligent boy in the class. The children would help him through difficult obstacles during the day and that showed true companionship and friendship. It made me realise children have a heart of gold who love unconditionally and without any expectation. Throughout my years in child care each and every child I have ever taught has left a special bond in my heart that I will forever cherish and remember. 

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? All of our wonderful educators are qualified, experienced and from diverse cultures. Most of the educators speak two to three different languages and bring with them world of knowledge and different perspectives for personality development. The kinder children participate in school readiness programs where the curriculum is set up for each child to achieve the maximum potential in learning. We have parent information nights that are held twice a year to talk about parent’s fears or anxieties and how to transition smoothly. We also have one on one meetings with families that take place close to the big school orientations in helping families understand the school’s expectations and school reports are handed out.

We celebrate many special events throughout the year starting from Chinese New Year to Christmas.
