What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I love seeing all our families and children grow in all developmental areas from when they first start at 2 years old until they are 5 years old and off to Kindergarten!
The changes, learning and growth that occurs in as little as 2-3 years is amazing, I feel lucky to be a part of so many young childrens lives and I love sharing these memorable times with them and their families.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? A few special memorable moments while working in childcare have been our Munchkin room graduation evenings – seeing our Munchkin children receive their certificates and celebrate that they have finished preschool and are off to Kindergarten the following year is very exciting!
Some of the funniest moments working in childcare would have to be seeing some of our boy children dance their little hearts out during music and movement time or even during free play time when music is playing for the children. When they don’t think the educators are watching the boys bust out the best dance moves!

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? My centre is on the smaller scale which I believe gives families a feeling of a family like educator setting because we are so small and there are not too many different educators teaching their children. Being a small centre means that all our educators are close, know each other very well and have good relationships with one another. This also gives the educators a chance to get to know all our families – no matter what room or age group your child your is in. Our centre has a beautiful big outdoor environment and we follow an outdoor/indoor routine throughout the day, so the children have many opportunities to move freely between our indoor and outdoor environment as they wish.
Our centre also has a very low staff turnover – most of our educators have been working at our centre for over 4/5 years.  
Our staff are all very friendly, warm and loving to all of our children so the relationships they build with the children are very special.
