Why Childcare?
“Ever since I was little I knew I wanted to teach. I began doing volunteer work in childcare centre’s 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.”

Why Giggles ELC?
“I have been the director at Giggles for 7 years and in this time I have formed strong bonds with the children and their families and educators in the service. Having babies in the centre allows us the opportunity to develop these relationships from such a young age. I am lucky to work in a team where all the educators have a strong passion and do their very best for the children and families and this is so important in our industry. It make me proud to be a part of a team that works so well together and is striving for the same goal.”
