  • Alison

    Alison: Centre Director

    I have over 13 years’ experience within the Early Learning sector, working in various roles and levels of management. I hold an Advanced Diploma of Children's Services and a Diploma of Leadership and Management. As a parent myself, I understand the importance of quality care for children. Each and every day, I endeavour to let the values of excellence and mutual respect guide my practice. It is my desire for all children to be able to reach their full potential to be confident, independent and responsible contributors to society through positive encouragement and guidance, incorporating a sense of community and collaborative partnership with all families. I believe we should view children as active participants in their own learning journey and provide them with experiences and opportunities that allow them to build their social competence and sense of agency. Children are naturally curious about their world and enjoy exploring their surroundings and this should be supported and encouraged.

    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

  • Estefania

    Estefania : Early Childhood 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.

  • Amber

    Amber: Early Childhood 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.

  • Lucy

    Lucy: Early Childhood 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.
