I completed my Diploma of Children’s Services in 2011 and I’m currently completing my studies to become an Early Childhood Teacher. I am the Preschool director at Leaps and Bounds Bunbury, and currently I am studying my Bachelor in Early Childhood Teaching. I have four beautiful children and some of my favourite things are: the colour purple, camping, art and craft and happy children! I believe that children have the right to feel safe and be encouraged to develop a sense of belonging. Children are central to everything I do – I value each child for the individual differences that each child brings. Children should have the opportunity to lead their own learning based on their abilities and interests.
