What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I love creating beautiful learning environments for the children, I love seeing how they interact with them and how they can turn one idea into something completely different. I love watching the children achieve goals that they have been working on and seeing how happy and excited they are when they completed them all on their own. I love how the children complete milestones and we get to be apart of the children first steps, learning talk and exploring things for the first time. I enjoy helping children overcome their own obstacles and fears and helping them to conquer the world. Watching them grow and develop as they learn new and exciting thing.
What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? The most memorable moment would have been when I was working in a infants room and we had a six week old baby start. One of our infants loved the baby and would constantly come over and check to see if she was okay. When Katrina would get a little bit upset Sofie would run over and get her a dummy, or her bunny and say “you okay” as she pat her gently giving her what she thought she might need. It was so sweet to the caring and nurturing side of such a small infant to another.
Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? I believe our childcare centre is a excellent choice for all parents because we are a family, my staff have such a love and passion for their jobs which they express this into their work . We want children to feel like they are at a home away from home, our chef does cooking lesson with the children, we have opportunity for the children to be apart of their own learning and lesson planning.
