What makes you passionate about working in childcare? This is a tough one as there are so many things to be passionate about when it comes to children! The early years lay the foundation of a child's life. I always say it's like the cement slab of a house, you have to get it right before you build on it. Getting to be an integral part of the growth and development of both the child and the family every day is so rewarding. It is great to watch children develop their individuality and build their confidence. 

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? There are plenty! It's never a dull day that's for sure and that's what makes it so great. A memorable moment that comes to mind is when I worked in the nursery and had a 6 month only baby start who was premature. Naturally, both the mother and father were really anxious about starting him in care. It was great to support them in the transition into care and watch their confidence in us grow. The child stayed with us until he went to school. It was so rewarding getting to be a part of all of those milestones. There were a lot of happy tears on his last day! We still stay in touch to this day.   

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? The centre has a welcoming and warm atmosphere which is integral for a child's learning and development. The centre has dedicated staff who love their job and care about each and every child and their families. 

Fun Fact: I am a John Farnham fan! I have now been to see him 3 times. My mother tells me when I was a toddler I used to dance in my nappy to his Whispering Jack concert every morning.
