Centre Manager - Community Kids Innisfail
“I always endeavour to adapt my teaching to suit the children within my care. ”
I started working in early learning in 2001 and I joined the team at Community Kids Innisfail in 2019. I hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care.
I always had a passion for early childhood education. After having children, my passion continued to grow. I moved to Far north Queensland some years later firstly residing in Cairns working for a G8 centre. I then journeyed to Atherton where I spent 8 years in a Great Beginnings centre where I built on my knowledge within the sector. I love the rewarding feeling of the difference you make each day in these children’s lives, as you guide their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
I have learnt that all children are unique and learn in their own way. Over the years I have learnt many different strategies through professional development and I always endeavour to adapt my teaching to suit the children within my care.
Attending a dedicated early learning service has many benefits, including opportunities to learn and develop, social interactions, the opportunities to develop independence and learn new routines. It also supports their transition to school.
I am fortunate enough to have a great team with lots of different knowledge and experience within the sector. We are passionate about creating a safe and nurturing environment for all the children in our care.
I build strong relationships with my families from the moment they visit us for a tour and ensure that my door is always open to answer any question they may have.
