Centre Manager - Chancellor Park World of Learning
“I mentor and support learning in a fun, play based learning environment that fosters uniqueness and inquiry-based approach.”
I began my career in early childhood education and care in 1990 and started working at World of Learning Chancellor Park in 2014. I hold a Bachelor of teaching and a Bachelor of education in early childhood. I am registered with the Queensland Teachers Collage.
I began my career as an assistant supporting an OOSH service. Completing my Diploma, I stepped up to room leader in a long day care setting, where I took on my first position as centre manager for a period of 5 years, as well as studying at university for 3 years. I have travelled with my husband’s work and went back into the position of lead educator. Moving to Townsville 8 years ago, I completed my fourth year at University, whilst being employed as a ECT. Moving to the Sunshine Coast, I took up a contract with the QLD Education Department as a teacher for a short time. Concreting my passion for the early childhood sector, I transitioned back into an ECT role at Chancellor Park World of Learning for the last 6 years. I recently stepped up to the Centre manager role.
My philosophy on teaching in the early childhood sector has evolved over the 30 years in the industry. I believe play needs to be preserved and that children need to be empowered and seen as capable, confident learners within an environment that allows for discovery, inquiry and investigation. I’m excited and passionate about being able to be apart of the children’s learning journey. Valuing their uniqueness in their growth, learning and development. It is a privilege to be apart of and building relationships with the families.
I value and respect all children. I mentor and support learning in a fun, play based learning environment that fosters uniqueness and inquiry-based approach.
The learning environment fosters wellbeing and allows children to build up social / emotional skills and build on their resilience in social situations. It fosters friendships and partnerships.
Our amazing team is diverse with knowledge, skills and backgrounds, who work collaboratively, with passion for and with children and the families for best possible outcomes. They are dedicated and highly motivated in working together to provide high quality programs for children.
Our team understands just how important your children are to you and we ensure we take our responsibilities seriously. World of Learning Early Education Centres has extensive policy and procedures in place to assist our team in protecting children in our care.
Meet and greet times are valuable ways to connect with families. We stay connected with families through our Xplor online platform where we communicate to families about their child’s day. Especially valuable for our families who parents work away form home. It keeps them involved in their child’s learning and day.
We understand that starting at a new centre can be overwhelming and that is why from the very first enquiry, we make sure that we address all your questions one by one. We walk families through all the forms and administration that need to be done, this includes enrolment forms, Child Care Subsidy (CCS), explaining subsidies, government caps, centre schedules, our centre menu and more.
