What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I want to be able to make a difference in children’s lives and provide Quality Care and Education to Children of all ages. Seeing Children learn and grow to their full potential and being a part of that is an amazing feeling. Forming long lasting relationships and bonds with Children and Families that can last way beyond a child’s time in care. The excitement on their faces, The smiles, The never ending questions and a Child’s thirst for knowledge and understanding. Helping children to develop their Social and Emotional skills that will last them a lifetime. The difference that Early Childhood Education can make in a Child’s Development and knowing that I have the honor of playing a part in Educating our future leaders. I have children of my own and I want nothing but the best for them and therefore want to provide the best care possible for all children here at Aussie Kindies Churchill.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Our centre is a Clean, Warm and Welcoming environment where the children and families are encouraged to become active participants in all aspects of care for their children. We support and listen to our families right from the moment they walk through our door and are always here to help in any way that we can. We provide our children with the opportunity to explore and learn at their own pace and engage in learning experiences of interest while Educators scaffold their play and use these as teachable moments. Educators strive to help our children be strong, independent and confident individuals by the time they leave our care. All Children are respected and Educators here at Aussie Kindies Churchill celebrate each child’s Individuality.
