Centre Manager - Cartwright World of Learning
“I absolutely love that I can be apart of children learning new things.”
I began my career in early childhood education and care in 2014 and started working at Leopold World of Learning in 2019. I hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education.
I absolutely love that I can be apart of children learning new things. Seeing the smile on a child’s face once they have conquered a new challenge is one of the most amazing moments to be had. All children are different in every way, and that needs to be respected and accommodated for.
There are certain aspects of learning that come from the centre setting, such as social skills and group learning dynamics. Children that attend early learning centres really have a head start in those areas. Our children have just started learning Makaton key sign and are really taking to conversing with each other using the gestures. This is an inclusive way for all children to communicate with each other.
We have a long-serving team that are all apart of our local community. Most of our team have their own young families, so really connect with parents on a person level. We are the sort of centre where everyone knows all the children and their families, no matter which room they are in. We are such a close-knit team it feels like one big family.
The best part of my job is the team – they are so committed and positive about their role as educators. The whole team sees their role as incredibly important, helping children establish the building blocks for a successful lifetime of learning.
Our team are encouraged to treat our environment as they would their home. The children are all apart of our family and we do all that we can to ensure their health and safety. All of our team have up to date training and support provided to further their skills, knowledge and understanding of the importance of child protection.
We have an open-door policy and always learn about our families to build strong relationship. From the moment you enter our centre, you will feel right at home. We like to take our time when showing families through the centre, so you can really see what is happening, and have plenty of time to ask questions. You will meet our team and see our environments and learn about how we help your child learn and feel loved.
We are always happy to provide assistance in any way during the enrolment period, as we know it can be complicated. We also hold several events throughout the year, encouraging families to come along and meet other parents, the team and enjoy whatever the event is!
A fun fact about me is that I love to go camping with my family, and toast marshmallows over the fire.
