I have worked within Early Childhood for over 15 years now, across a number of positions ranging from Educator to Centre Support Manager. The last 10 years of my career have seen me predominantly in leadership, management and consultant roles, focussed on supporting, guiding and mentoring other professionals within Early Childhood. I hold my Advanced Diploma and have almost completed my Bachelor of Education. My work has steered me towards these types of roles based on my desire to inspire and support others. I have a huge passion for creating and supporting authentic high quality care for children and their families that are founded on respect. Through relationships with children, families and other professionals I strive to create an environment that is supportive, welcoming and nurtures a love of learning for children and adults alike. I believe children are whole beings, who will grow and develop in their own time. Our role as Educators is to provide children with the opportunity to do this, in an environment that creates wonder, curiosity and a desire to explore.
