Why Childcare?

Ever since I was little I knew I wanted to teach. I began doing volunteer work in childcare centres during my high school years. From school I went straight into studying. I love having the opportunity to educate young minds but also knowing that each day they teach me something too! I feel a sense of achievement when the children leave us for big chool, knowing we have done all we can to prepare them for this next stage of their life. My passion lies in teaching and watching the children learn and mentoring the educators to provide a high quality program that challenges the children.

No two days are the same. Each day brings a new challenge. I feel privileged coming in every day to 40 little smiling faces, with the opportunity to care for each and every one of them.
