I have been an early childhood educator for eight years and have worked in various centres all over Australia, exploring different job roles and experiencing all age groups. I feel extremely lucky to have found a career that I am so passionate about and actually enjoy going to every day! One of the philosophies I align with is the Reggio Emilia approach, where educators are partners to children and assist them to find their interests and explore open-ended play. I also strongly believe in play-based learning, where children can imagine, explore and investigate, taking charge of their own learning! It is a special feeling knowing I am helping the future generations grow!
