Centre Manager - Lilliput World of Learning
“With the guidance and commitment, we give to these children it really helps them for the future.”
I began my career in early childhood education and care in 2006 and started working at Lilliput World of Learning in 2014. I hold a Certificate III to Advanced Diploma in Child Care. I have worked in the room and guided children’s behaviour, to providing interactive experiences such as cooking, art, craft, school readiness to now guiding and mentoring educators.
I have always had a love of children. To see the smiles on the children’s faces when they have achieved something whether it be writing their name, painted a picture for their family or built a tower. I have achieved so much and learnt so much in my time in the Early Education Sector and now branching out to become a foster carer.
Children are all different and learn at different stages but with the guidance and commitment we give to these children it really helps them for the future. I enjoy watching all the children grow and follow through our service. We watch them develop at all ages.
Children in childcare care are given the chance to extend their social skills a lot more and are able to develop and learn from the other children. If a child is not yet walking and they see other children walking it will give them more courage to start walking.
At Lilliput World of Learning, we have a dedicated team of multicultural staff. We are able to show our passion through our room setups and outdoor setups. In our centre, all the staff know all the children and understand the children needs and have great open communication with the families.
Our centre has a health and safety champion who checks over everything monthly. As a service we are aware of mandatory reporting and are committed to reporting any signs of neglect.
We all have open communication with our families, and this continues throughout the whole service. Throughout the year we hold Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparent days for our families to get involved. We also offer morning tea packs for families to take with them during their drop-off.
During the enrolment, I as the centre manager ensure to guide the families through the whole process. I will offer assistance with CCS and answer any questions parents may have.
