Centre Manager Profile

Laura Edwards

Hello, my name is Laura, as Centre Manager here at Thuringowa World of Learning I would like to welcome you to come and have a look at our facilities and meet our friendly educators.

The essential part of my philosophy and practice is to provide the highest level of education for your child in a warm, nurturing and safe environment. The sense of connectedness and belonging at Thuringowa World of Learning is enhanced by the centre’s community feel; we welcome input from families and value the knowledge and experience of the parents. 

Our team of dedicated educators are highly skilled and participate in ongoing training and comprehensive professional development that is essential to our centre’s commitment to ensuring every child experiences success in their learning and development. Our learning environments are carefully arranged to promote exploration and curiosity, challenge children’s skills and abilities and most importantly encourage your child’s love of learning.

I look forward to working in close collaboration with all families as I recognize that developing positive relationships based on mutual trust and open communication is the key to providing a ‘home away from home’ environment.

“My son attends this center and looks forward to going each day. He loves his teachers and has developed a strong connection with them. I especially love the new Kindyhub program that they are using now, as both my husband and I are able to see what our son has been doing each day and have conversations with him about what is happening in all of the wonderful photos they take.”
