Aimee Salisbury

Centre Manager - Community Kids Heatherbrae

“We are all dedicated in providing quality care and education to your children.”

I hold my Masters in Leadership & Management in Education along with my Degree in Teaching and Early Childhood Education. I have been working as an Early Childhood Educator since 2005. 

Fostering and sustaining partnerships with families, team members and support services are fundamental in the early years’ settings. Children thrive when teachers, specialists and families work cohesively together towards common goals. Our centre has sustained partnerships with our local schools, local district Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Elders and local Support Services. 

As the Director I believe in a shared leadership approach. Empowering team members to take on lead roles and responsibilities fosters a sense of commitment, ownership and pride to the successful operation of our centre. Many of our team members including myself have worked collaboratively together for over 10 years. 

Our team understands just how important your children are to you and we ensure we take our responsibilities seriously. Community Kids Early Education Centres have extensive policy and procedures in place to assist our team in protecting children in our care. 

We are all dedicated in providing quality care and education to your children. All childcare centres, including our centre, use the foundation of play-based learning to guide our experiences every day. The framework describes childhood as a time of belonging, being and becoming. With access to a range of age-appropriate learning resources, trained educators, and new experiences among friends, we set children up to thrive in an environment that is dedicated to learning.  

Children develop their curiosity, problem-solving, confidence and resilience at our centre, and we carefully plan play-based learning experiences around their interests and learning goals. I believe children benefit from a balanced curriculum approach where teachers offer; play based learning, a predictable (yet flexible) routine and planned/intentional grouped learning opportunities.  

Over time, you will see your child develop abilities such as language, motor movement, memory, concentration and social relationships all by partaking in these experiences - it's a truly incredible journey to witness!  

We understand that starting at a new centre can be overwhelming and that is why from the very first enquiry, we make sure that we address all your questions one by one. We walk families through all the forms and administration that need to be done, this includes enrolment forms, Child Care Subsidy (CCS), explaining subsidies, government caps, centre schedules, our centre menu and more. 

Our team look forward to welcoming and showing you everything we have to offer.
