Centre Manager - Bow Bowing World of Learning
“My belief is that all children deserve to flourish in the surrounding and I have always been driven to provide this environment for the children in my care.”
I began my career in early childhood education in 2005, and I started at Bow Bowing World of Learning child care centre in 2017. I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services.
My time working in child care and early education has by far been the most refreshing journey. I have always been drawn to the innocence and potential of children. I am constantly inspired by how children learn, as well as their thirst for knowledge and the ever-expanding world around them.
The most important and valued lesson I have learned about children is that each child is a complete individual, and they are made up of more than what we see on the outside. Therefore, giving children the tools they need will further form their self-identity.
My approach is and has always been one of inclusions and expansion. I believe that all children deserve to flourish in their surroundings, and I have always been driven to provide this environment for the children in my care.
When talking with new parents, we are sure to make them aware of the importance of play-based learning, learning alongside peers and building and lasting scaffolding relationships for children, be it with staff or other children. We are always open about the importance of learning and how this environment can assist in the children gaining a broader understanding of the world around them.
I have enjoyed getting to know the team here at Bow Bowing World of Learning child care centre, and I have come to realise that all team members are incredibly passionate about what they do. This child care centre has been home for a long time for many of us. We have a diverse team of staff and thus a greater cultural understanding of the wider community, which is reflected within our centre and with our children.
I also make sure the staff are educated on the importance of family relationships. We work hard to build trusting relationships and are committed to ongoing and open communication with all families throughout the year. Staff are encouraged to seek parents out when they can to communicate daily events and progress made by their children. I am a key link between parents and staff; thus, I am available to answer any questions and reconcile all concerns they may have.
