Centre Manager - San Marino World of Learning
"Early childhood educators are like a puzzle in a child’s life. You may not think you fit in with that child, but you are needed, and you make a difference."
I began my career in early childhood education in 2010, and I started at San Marino World of Learning in 2021.
I have a Diploma in Children’s Service and a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood (Birth to Five Years). I have worked in the early childhood sector for 12 years across all age groups, starting as an educator, room leader, and centre manager.
I have always wanted to work with children. From a young age, I have been passionate about working in the early childhood industry and often used to play the teacher with my cousins.
I love that I can be a person in a child’s life who can be a role model and remember as they grow up. Children are like sponges, and what we teach them at a young age will stick growing up.
During my career in the early childhood industry, I have learnt that children are all individual learning and should be valued. I find that the child’s environment impacts how the child learns and develops. The child should feel safe and secure in that environment.
I would sum up my passion for teaching and helping children on their journey with a quote “Early childhood educators are like a puzzle in a child’s life. You may not think you fit in with that child, but you are needed, and you make a difference.”
I believe that attending an early childhood education service is beneficial for children as it creates opportunities for them to make meaningful relationships through social interactions with other children and educators.
The child develops lifelong fine motor skills (holding a pencil) and social, emotional, and physical attributes within a play-based learning environment.
I have eight educators who work here at San Marino World of Learning. Each educator shows passion and dedication to working with children. All the educators make the centre feel like a home environment and create opportunities for children to develop skills for the future.
Working in partnership with families is key to success. Educators also form a strong bond with children and families. We do have focus careers that enable families to discuss in-depth matters regarding their child’s development and needs. We also communicate events and other important information through newsletters, emails, and notice boards.
