Thank you for taking interest in our wonderful centre. My passion for working with children started when I was young. I had two passions. One was cooking and the other one was caring and watching children grow. Previously I have worked in the kitchen and owing my own take-away business then decided it was time to follow my passion and that was to care and watch children grown and give them the best possible start to life.
My journey began when I was 16 doing work experience in a child care centre in Townsville then followed my other dream as well. After having my daughter I decided that this is where I really wanted to be. In 2008 I started out again in home day care then went into a centre. I began to study my Certificate III through TAFE and after this I continued on studying and now have an Advanced Diploma in Children Services.
I have worked my way up from an Assistant to Lead educator to 2IC and now Centre Manager at Lilliput World of Learning. I greeting parents and children each morning with a smile. The children always look at the photos displayed on the front of my desk to see if they are up there and tell their parents who each child is and what has happened in the photo. In the afternoon it is also a great feeling when the parents are asking their children what they have done for the day and they tell their parents what exciting experiences they have had.
Our rooms offer a home like atmosphere and promote natural based learning experience within our developmental curriculum that caters for individual children for all ages. I believe each child has their own individual and unique in their own way. They all grow and develop in their own time and we cater for each child’s individual needs.

See what some of our parents say about our centres:
“My child has attended Lilliput from when she was quite young and I have nothing but praise for the staff. The centre itself is clean, the staff are welcoming, approachable and flexible. I would definitely recommend this service.”
“They have lovely staff that always make you feel welcome. Center is always kept clean and tidy. I feel that they always have my child’s needs at the top of their priority list. Would recommend them to anyone looking for a full time daycare.”
“My son has been coming to this centre for a year and half and in this time his development and confidence has risen through the roof. The staff are from diverse cultural backgrounds and are very welcoming to all the different families. The Director and staff have taken incursions to another level with Capoeira, Future Champs, Filipino Lesson, sign language lesson, Hands on Wildlife and Captain Active just to name a few. The clean and beautifully presented centre is a must for all families looking for quality and compassionate care for their children!”
“My eldest son has been attending this centre for 2 months now and absolutely loves it! Since the day he started, the staff have been so welcoming and friendly. He gets so excited when we pull up in the carpark for another day at daycare and is learning so much each and everyday. I love that we gets daily updates and the Kindy Hub app is just great. The educators and assistants are the loveliest of ladies and I would highly recommend this centre to anyone. I cannot wait to put my youngest son into this centre also.”
“I have two boys at Lilliput who have both been there since aged 6 months, for three days a week. I was initially anxious about leaving them for the long hours, but the care they receive is fantastic. I know they are happy when they talk about what they have done and bring me home all their arts and craft. They also like to tell me about all their friends and their teachers. The nicest thing about Lilliput is the caring environment. Would definitely recommend Lilliput to a friend!”
“We’ve always found Lilliput World of Learning to be a great centre, always renewing and upgrading skills and equipment or implementing new projects to help the children enjoy learning through variety. The staff have always been diligent, communicate with parents and are in tune with the children’s needs, wants and their growth and development requirements.”
“Love this daycare, staff are always friendly and communicative and centre manager is great with the kids always pleasant on arrival and leaving. My son has been coming here for almost 3 years now, never had a problem. Keep up the great work guys!!”
“I have a daughter attending the centre, she is now in the senior kindly room. My daughter has been attending the centre since the babies room.my daughter has always felt comfortable at Lilliput World of Learning. I’d reccomend the centre all day long, very happy with the centres learning programmes and the loving staff. Management is great, best kindy, in my view.”
If someone was to ask me why I send my children to Lilliput World of Learning there would be various reasons why but the main reason is I know when I drop my son ‘s off there in the morning and through out the day ,until I pick him up he is given the upmost care and respect nobody other than myself can give. My first son went there until he started prep in 2015 and loved going to daycare, made wonderful friends and was prepared for prep educationally and socially. When I had my second son in 2015 and had to return to work in 2016 there was no doubt who would take care of my infant while I was at work. I know that the Ladies there genuinely care for my son and he has close relationships with them so that they are almost like family. The centre is managed efficiently, professionally with a lovely caring atmosphere. I have never questioned the cleanliness it is always spotless with well stocked supplies. The centre offers fun activities for the kids such as capoeira, circus school, hands on nature and healthy champs that enrich their knowledge and curiosity while being fun and educational. Every day when I pick him up he is happy and farewells his carers with hugs. I’m confident my children are receiving quality care and highly recommend this centre to anybody seeking childcare.
