Centre Manager - Community Kids Waterford
“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 began my career in early childhood education in 2005, and I started at Community Kids Waterford in 2019. I hold a Diploma in Children's Services.
I have been inspired to work in early education because I want to make children feel safe, secure and supported. I am passionate about helping children on their learning and life journey and to be able to witness their growth and development.
There are many learning benefits of attending a dedicated early childhood education and care centre compared to learning at home. 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. 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!
At Community Kids Waterford, we have long-serving, multicultural team members who reflect our local community. Many have been with the centre for over five years. Our team is extremely passionate about creating a centre that is a home away from home for both families and children, where our team celebrates the diversity of all cultures. The centre is an extension of the home environment, and we work in partnership with families to ensure this is the case, understanding each child's individual needs.
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. In addition, we have an open-door policy that is always available for families and children.
