    As a Preschool Director my own philosophy is based on helping young children grow in confidence and become effective learners who can contribute to their world and create relationships with other children and Educators. I always maintain a respectful relationship with families, working together to achieve the best outcome for their little one.

  • Danielle

    Danielle: Early Childhood Teacher / Assistant Director

    I believe that children are unique in their own special ways and are very capable of achieving especially when they feel safe and respected in their learning environment. I also believe in the importance of catering to individual needs, abilities, interests and learning styles to make learning more personalised and meaningful. My aim as an educator is to create an inviting and safe space where mutual trust and respect can be developed, whilst providing hands-on learning experiences that are fun, stimulating, challenging and achievable. Ultimately, I aim to shape children’s minds in the way they behave and think so they grow to become individuals who are positive and resilient

  • Samantha

    Samantha: Qualified Room Leader

    I believe that the children are the future generations of this world and our role as educators is to nurture their learning and development and help them grow into confident learner's. I believe that all children learn differently and we need to amend the way we teach for all children to learn. My focus is ensuring I build positive and trusting relationships with the children and the families within our preschool and also provide the highest quality care. I believe it is our responsibility to ensure our environments are clean, safe and inviting for the children and their families to enable us to maximise the learning potential for all children in our care.

  • Cassi

    Cassi: Qualified Educator Assistant

    I believe that when children have a sense of belonging and feel safe, secure and supported they have the confidence to play, explore, make decisions and learn. As an Early Childhood Educator developing nurturing, respectful and reciprocal relationships with children and their feelings creates a responsive and inclusive environment which promotes each individual child's belonging and learning.

    As an educator I believe that my job is to help children learn and develop to the best of their ability through play and meaningful experiences, intentional teaching and to set goals to meet the needs of all children. I strive to be the best educator I can be and to always be there for children and families throughout the crucial learning and development that happens during the early years.

  • Penelope Swinney

    Penelope Swinney: Approved Provider

    I am a trained teacher and a dedicated mum to three beautiful children. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with families, and work alongside passionate teachers and educators to ensure children receive the best education. I believe all children are unique and capable, with their own interests and passions. As teachers it is our job to explore those interests, nurture those passions and instil a belief in each child that they are capable, resilient and can make a difference in our world.

  • Pathresia

    I believe children need the assurance of being loved and cared while they are enjoying an educational environment. I believe that each child is unique and as an educator I will value and develop each child's strengths, interests, backgrounds, and developmental stages abilities. I will provided opportunities for children to explore, discover, create and imagine their world. Trust and positive relationships with families and children is key.

  • Estefania

    Estefania : Assistant Educator

    I’m convinced that children will contribute to our future in greater ways if we support them positively during their early years. It is important for them to have the opportunity to use their imagination and creativity to wonder, discover and play in a safe and nurturing environment, which us educators work daily to provide them with. During their process of learning, in which both educators and children learn together, it is key to respect each child’s uniqueness, strengths and abilities, which will allow them to boost their confidence and self esteem. It is also essential to highlight the relationships our preschool build with the famiVyglies, acknowledging their diversity into the program. My aim is to create positive lasting memories with children, make them feel safe and encourage them throughout their development.

  • Portia

    Portia: Assistant Educator

    I believe all children should have the right to learn and grow in their own individual way. Not every child learns in the same way or at the same pace therefore I have a passion for encouraging children to learn at their own pace and in their own way. I also have a passion for working with children who have additional needs and love to encourage positive and thoughtful interactions between all children.

  • Amber

    Amber: Assistant Educator

    As an educator I believe children are individual leaders and learn at their own pace. I strongly follow Lev Vygotsky theorist as I believe children learn through play. My goal as an educator is to inspire children to be their own individual adolescents and provide a safe and warm environment for all children.

  • Angela

    Angela: Cook

    Cooking for my family and community is my true passion! I am truly passionate about teaching healthy eating habits early on in life as it has positive effects on little minds. I love to role model a variety of nutritious meals and explore cultural ingredients to children to enjoy.

  • Lucy

    Lucy: Assistant Educator

    I believe that children’s early exploration of the world is vital to their understanding of it later on. For this reason I promote and encourage learning through play and aim to provide many fun opportunities and activities for children to conduct their own exploration under. I also believe that it is important to create a safe environment for children to come to each day where they feel safe and appreciated, for this reason developing healthy, meaningful bonds and relationships with children are of the highest importance to me.

  • Jess

    Jess: Assistant Educator

    I believe in nurturing children's natural curiosity guiding them to learn, play and explore. I believe that children who are actively involved in the learning process have a greater depth of understanding of the world around them. I ensure that I connect with children and families on an individual level in order to incorporate topics that are relevant and interesting to them. Children need an environment in which they feel safe and secure to ask questions and make mistakes. I often use an experiential or task based approach in my practice allowing children to draw meaning from tasks and reflect on the experience in an interactive way. My goal is to facilitate the acquisition of lifelong learning skills and increase our little ones' confidence. I aim to achieve this by creating interactive activities that encourage participation and challenges their abilities.
