Centre Manager - Community Kids Upper Coomera

"I am a true believer in high-quality care and strive every day to ensure that high-quality care is given to our children and families."

I started working in early learning in August 2002. I joined the team at Community Kids Old Coach Road in 2017. I hold a Diploma of children's services. I started off as a trainee and worked as as educator, lead educator and now Centre Manager. I have also recently become a CM Certified trainer. 

I am passionate about working with children and watching them grown. There is nothing more rewarding than being a part of children's development and having an impact on their early years. As educators, we support children's personal, educational and social progress during a crucial stage of brain development. This includes positive contribution to their social and emotional development, physical development, language and literacy skills and the importance of play in childhood. Play improves the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being of children. Through play, children learn about the world and themselves. 

I am a true believer in high-quality care and strive every day to ensure that high-quality care is given to our children and families. I believe that children learn and develop at their own pace. As educators working in child care and early education, we have such an important job to set up foundations for children's learning journey, giving children the right stepping stones for success. 

A dedicated early childhood education setting gives children an opportunity to develop social skills, which helps them form healthy relationships with other people. Early start child care will help them learn how to get along with other children, share and take turns, listen to others, communicate their ideas and become independent. These are all important skills that will set them up for school and beyond.

We pride ourselves on employing fully qualified educators with many years’ experiences in the early childhood industry. All our employees are fully trained in First Aid, CPR and Anaphylaxis, which is updated regularly. Professional development is provided to the whole team throughout the year to keep educators up to date with current skills and practices required. 

Active engagement and open communication with families is our priority. We want to make our families feel comfortable and welcomed in our service. We strive to create a home away from home.

I look forward to welcoming your family to our centre.
