What makes you passionate about working in childcare? The best part about working with children is watching them develop and grow each and every day they are here with us. I love to see the excitement and wonder when they come to the service and learn new things; that’s what it’s all about and that’s what makes me passionate about working in childcare!

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? Every day is fun and has memorable moments but I would probably say the most memorable moment in child care was when I came to work on my birthday and the staff and the children had done up signs for my birthday and made me a wonderful birthday cake by scratch with coloured icing and sprinkles and they were all so excited! That’s probably the most memorable moment that made me feel as though I was part of something bigger!

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Firstly, we have long standing staff that are enthusiastic and passionate about teaching and guiding children throughout the most important years of their lives. Our environment is warm and inviting were you child can feel safe and secure while engaging in wonderful learning experiences. We are close to schools which makes morning pickups and drops off easier for families who have children going to school. We also have great collaborative relationship with the Cranbrook School where we do visits to help our Kindergarten children feel at ease when they do their transition to school.
