Centre Manager - Community Kids Cessnock
“High-quality early childhood education gives children the best start in life.”
I commenced working in Early Childhood Education in 2014. I joined the team at Community Kids Cessnock in January 2017. I hold a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care.
I secured a role with G8 Education in 2015 as a Room Leader and since then have continued to grow professionally up the ladder as Educational Leader, Assistant Centre Manager and now Centre Manager at Community Kids Cessnock. Being able to oversee the operation of an Early Education Centre is inspiring in itself, knowing that I'm responsible for the care and education that children receive each and everyday is super rewarding. My favourite part of the role is supporting my Educators and Team to deliver high quality education and care to our children while they engage in rich play-based learning experiences.
During my time in Early Childhood Education and Care, I've learnt that children learn through observing, listening, exploring, experimenting and asking questions. I believe that being motivated, engaged and invested in developing relationships with children is key to supporting their life long love of learning. High-quality early childhood education gives children the best start in life.
As educators, we have the ability to provide a safe, nurturing and supportive environment where children feel secure and comfortable. Not only can we provide this safety net for children, we also open up many opportunities to be a safety net for a child's family. At Community Kids Cessnock, we aim to give back to our families where we can and ensure that our families in need can always take something from our Community Fridge and Pantry available in our foyer if they are struggling. We have also recently linked up with We Care Connect, collecting donated goods for local vulnerable families.
Our Educators at Community Kids Cessnock are passionate, kind and caring educators who share a love for children's learning and development. Our educators are dedicated in getting to know our families to ensure that we can support our children to their fullest potential.
We include our families in our everyday curriculums and constantly ask for their feedback. As a centre we hold an open door policy and invite families future and current to visit and join in on our educational programs at any time.
