Carol-Ann Wadsworth – Centre Director Taigum 1
Hi I am Carol-ann and I am the Director at our amazing Taigum Centre 1. I have been here for quite a few years and really believe this is where I belong. Stepping up as a Director has been both inspirational and amazing. I always thought I was meant to be in a classroom with the children, but now I have the best of both worlds. Being able to be involved with the children and their families as well as create a safe play environment where everyone wants to be is so rewarding.
I first started my career in 1995 as a Kids Only staff member on the amazing Hayman Island. I didn’t realise that this was the start of my new chosen career in child care. I began my studies with completing my cert iii in children’s services than continued onto my Diploma and lastly Advanced Diploma. I also completed my Cert iii in Training and Assessment in 2014.
I have always been very passionate about my position in child care and thoroughly enjoy every day. I truly believe that if you find a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life.
I love the Early Years Learning Framework as it is all about what life as a child should and can be. Experiences that allow them to be themselves, appreciate others and become confident learners.
Taigum KIDS is my second home and it is really important to me that you feel that when you walk through our door. I believe that if we can give you that “goose bump” feeling when you walk around and look through our centre and meet our dedicated educators, than you need not look any further for your long day care service.
