My name is Suliana Brahne and I have been the center director for First Grammar Bankstown since 2012. I started working with children as a casual and this is when I realized I have the passion for children. I then studied my Certificate 111 through Tafe Bankstown and continued on to my Diploma in Children and Services. I have four years of experience in this field. I have worked as an Assistant, Team Leader, Assistant Director and now as a Centre Director for this wonderful center.
Here at First Grammar Bankstown we provide a warm, nurturing and safe environment that caters to each individual child and families need. We believe that parents are the child’s first educators and encourage parental participation and input at all times, whilst respecting individual lifestyles, values and beliefs, and their rights and opinions.
We want to provide qualified, caring and enthusiastic educators who will nurture each child’s learning, thinking and development. We endeavors to create a “family-like” atmosphere and recognize the importance of creating a link between home and the Centre, where both parents and educators work in partnership to develop the child as a whole in a mutually supportive and caring environment. Children and parents are welcomed into the Centre regardless of culture, religious and family beliefs and our educators are sensitive to and respectful of these practices
As a Centre Director here at First Grammar Banks town, I look forward to seeing each child reach their fullest potential in learning as they discover new goals and achievements for themselves.I love being able to be a part of the children’s lives and watching them develop into confident little beings.
Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centre:
“First Grammar Bankstown have been absolutely prefect for both my 2 children Michael 3 and Eli 2 who have been attending now for almost 10 months. I was recommended to the preschool by a good friend who is one of the educators Christina Toauk. The staff are ALWAYS so friendly and accommodating to any of my concerns. My son Michael has a speech delay and needs special help with understanding his needs and trying to help him move forward. He also is a very fussy eater and the staff specially the Director Suli have been extremely accommodating and persistent to help Michael, that extra care in making him special food that he likes. The centre has a outstanding learning program and the latest smart broad that has been wonderful for the children to learn. I like that the centre is very new and clean and the outdoor area is very open with new equipment. My boys love all the staff and I see in the time I drop off and pick up that all the staff love them back just as much. Thankyou to all the wonderful staff at First Grammar Bankstown!”
“I am one of the first parents to have my children enrolled… For the past three years the centre has been open I can honestly that my kids have learnt so much. The staff and especially the director are more like family to me and my kids ! I recommend everyone there . I know I can drop my kids off at anytime and know I have absolutely nothing to worry about at all . Every teacher in every class room is amazing in there own ways . Thank you very much First Grammar staff. Thank you Suli for keeping the centre together and growing. The best and most honest director I have come across .”
“From the moment I dropped my daughter off for her first day I felt at ease. I knew she was in good hands. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and were always happy to answer any questions I had and fill me in on anything that happened during the day. A year and a half later and it is still the same. We are always greeted with warm smiles when we arrive in the morning from all of the staff members and when we leave for the day. The centre itself is very tidy and is a wonderful learning environment for my daughter. She especially loves the outdoor play area. Thank you First Grammar Bankstown!”
“I was absolutely blown away by First Grammar Bankstown! From the first moment I rang them, the lovely Director and the team helped us like we were a family rather than a customer. My son was only 6-months when I had to go back to work and having a peace of mind helped us to transition. Each staff is extremely professional AND genuinely care for each of the kids, not just going through the motion of looking after them like a chore. My son absolutely loves “going to the school” here. Due to full time work, I’ve tried a couple of other centres and none of them even compare to First Grammar’s team…. A genuinely caring environment with dedicated professionals who treat your babies/children with utmost respect, care and love. I really appreciate all the regular communications, emails, newsletters and the annual report book full of all the crafts and pictures for the year. Highly recommended.”
“First Grammar Bankstown is absolutely fantastic. The staff are all welcoming and very approachable. The centre itself is kept clean and tidy – I have never walked into a dirty room. The educators are enthusiastic and you feel that they genuinely care for your children. Since starting at First Grammar at the beginning of this year my son has ‘come out of his shell!’ He has learnt all his colours and most of his shapes and his language has developed a lot as well. All up a very warm and comfortable centre, where I am happy to leave my son to play and learn.”
