  • Zenika

    Zenika: Area Manager

    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. I believe our amazing environment and our experienced Educators provide an exceptional early childhood setting based on the Early Years Learning Framework, ensuring the community that surrounds our preschool is involved in the program.

  • 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.

  • Rachelle

    Rachelle : Preschool Director

    I believe all children should feel welcomed in a safe, warm environment where they feel like they belong. The first 5 years of a child's life is the most important so I believe all children should be provided with educational, fun play based curriculum to encourage them to grow into unique individuals. I believe its important to communicate with families to gain information about the children's interest, beliefs and traditions. All children and their families should be respected and treated equally.

  • Rebecca

    Rebecca: Second in Charge / Room Leader

    I believe that every child has the right to feel nurtured, loved and cared for at all times. I understand that in a child's life, learning is constantly ongoing and because of this, my goal for each child is to provide an environment that encourages them to explore, discover, create and imagine. I strive to guide them into the next stage of their development with confidence in themselves and excitement for scaffold learning. I believe that every child is an individual and as their educator I value and strive to develop their individual needs, strengths, interests, skills, abilities and knowledge to extend their learning.

  • Natalie

    Natalie: Room Leader / Educational Leader

    I have been in the childcare industry for 20 years and I’m dedicated to sharing my knowledge to enable the best for the children families and community. I believe the children should be nurtured to enable their knowledge friendships and understanding of the world would around them. Therefore I will use the circle of security to develop meaningful relationships with the children. Provide a safe stimulating environment in which is inclusive and shows respect and is inclusive to our diverse cultures. I will provide a play based curriculum in which supports the children’s well-being and interest, to encourage confidence, growth and independence. I believe families are play apart in shaping the children growth and minds set. Therefore I will be inclusive and make all families feel inclusive and apart of our family embedding their knowledge ideas and cultures in the room and curriculum.

  • Melissa

    Melissa: Room Leader

    I pride myself on being able to create safe, secure and positive relationships with every child within my care. This is so important to me as I believe children achieve their best when these types of relationships are formed with their educators. I also believe that children learn and grow at their own pace and understand the importance of creating fun and engaging experiences that all children can participate in.

  • Debbie

    Debbie: Early Childhood Educator

    As an educator and advocate for children and their rights for many years I strongly believe in being actively engaged in their learning, growth and development in the stages of early learning through purposeful experiences based on a child's interest. Building strong connections and relationships with children, families and the community is integral and their input and participation is valuable as we work alongside each other to the best possible outcome for each child. I promote and provide fun filled experiences in a safe, secure, happy environment which enables exploration of culture beliefs diversity and inclusiveness for all which enhances children to challenge themselves to pave a way for them to become the best they can be and a valued member of their community.

  • Karissa

    Karissa: OSHC Co-Ordinator

    I believe that all children should be able to express themselves in a safe and comforting environment. As someone who is studying primary teaching I enjoy planning purposeful activities so children can learn through play based curriculum and create their own ideas of the world. I build meaningful relationships with all children and families to ensure they feel valued at our OSHC.

  • Tia

    Tia: Early Childhood Educator / OSHC

    As someone who is studying early child and primary education at university my belief to provide the best care and education to your children is to have environments where the children feel safe and ready to learn. I also believe that children learn through play-based activities and social interactions. Building strong relationships should also be encouraged, these relationships should not just be about knowing the child as an individual but the child’s community and their families. Having open discussions about how to provide the best care for a child allows them to thrive in their education.

  • Jo

    Jo: Cook / Early Childhood Educator

    As individuals we all have different pallets of taste, texture and likes and as a mum myself I know how reluctant children may be when trying new meals. Taking this into consideration, I collaborate with children and their families to cater for their individual needs. My meals are always full of colour and have plenty of choices to encourage children to try new things.

  • Kelsey

    Kelsey: Trainee Educator

    As a trainee educator I believe that each child is an independent learner who moves at their own pace. I also believe that it is important to have a safe atmosphere for children to come to each day where they feel safe and appreciated, as a result, I place a high value on developing positive, meaningful connections and relationships with each child.

  • Deacon

    Deacon: Early Childhood Educator

    I believe that all children have to right to understanding life skills throughout their early education. I believe children should be given the care they need, provide them with positive re-direction, and teach children to respect their environment.

  • Alicia

    Alicia: Diploma Early Chilhdood Educator

    All children need assurance of being cared for, safe and included. Feeling loves, valued and wanted as they explore and enjoy being with others when they are away from their loved ones. Teaching and caring for children is my passion and I believe security and trust are two very important components as well as my devotion and relationships with each child in my care. I believe that every child is an individual. As as educator I value and strive to develop all children's strengths, interests, skills abilities and knowledge, providing them with opportunities to explore, discover, create and imagine, extending on their learning.
