Centre Manager - Community Kids Kewarra Beach
“I strive to create an environment where all children feel safe, comfortable and supported.”
I started my Early Education Journey in England in 2008, I moved to Australia in 2012 and joined Pelicans where I worked until transferring to Kewarra Beach in December 2022. I have been with the company for 10 years. I hold a Diploma in early Childhood and an Advance Diploma in Community Services. I also have Child Protection and Food Handling qualifications.
I love helping children achieve their goals and building the trusting relationships with both children and their families. I have worked in many roles including Lead educator, Educational Leader and Assistant Centre Manager. I am very passionate about leading the team to inspire and grow the little people in our care.
Every child is individual. They all learn and communicate in their own ways. It is our job to both help and nurture the children to reach their full potential. I strive to create an environment that is inclusive of all children's interests, culture and learning ability, where all children feel safe, comfortable and supported.
Putting your child in care for the first time can be very scary and overwhelming. We have an open door policy where families are welcome into the centre at anytime. We have a team of qualified educators who focus on children's development and strengths to help the children grow and be successful in their childhood journey. They aim to make learning fun each day while working on each child's individual goals and development.
We have very close relationships with all our families. We hold Centre Events where we invite families into the centre. New families are encouraged to come and spend as much time as needed before their children start. We believe that every family needs to feel 100% confident leaving their children in our care. We use Xplor where families receive information regarding sleep, food, nappy changes and photo's of their child throughout the day.
