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.

Qualifications: â€‹Diploma in Early Childhood Education

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I know I can make a difference in the lives of young children every time I head to work! I get to see children's development and learning firsthand as children grow and flourish under my care. In many families parents rely on child care so they can work, so they entrust us with thier children- and what a priviledge it is to play a role in children's lives during those vital first five years. Today's children are tomorrow's future/ Children's early experiences and the quality of their care and relationships are crucial during this time. This means my role in child care can have an impact on a child's entire life. What more can I achieve than this happiness of making a positive difference in one's life.

Qualification: Master of teaching (Birth-12 years old)

What makes you passionate about working in childcare?

I love hearing the voices of the children and seeing their faces lighting up with fervour each time they learn something new undoubtedly brings boundless joy. It is also the most rewarding career. As an early childhood teacher, I will be a part of community to help children to learn, grow and develop to their full potential and ability because the early childhood programs focus on the individuality of each child, such as the child’s strengths and interests.
