What is your philosophy about educating children?
I have a vision and aim of creating a place for children to live, learn and grow. We respect and nurture the uniqueness and potential of each child and actively promote the early childhood years as a time for discovery, exploration and the development of lifelong learning skills. I am committed to providing high quality early learning and care environments, as well as innovative and exciting programs, learning stories, provocations and environments for children and their families. Our educators provide all the children with individualised learning portfolios, allowing families to see their children’s progress and learning from day one at our centre. I am a firm believer that children need to be immersed in the world around them and that every child has a right to be given the opportunity to learn, in comfortable and nurturing surroundings with familiar adults; and from this grow and develop into confident children who will have the ability to transition easily into the early childhood environments, primary school and ultimately become successful and confident adults.
