What is your name?
How long have you been working in childcare?

What are you most proud of at your centre?
Every day I get to witness my colleagues put their heart and soul into educating the children at the centre. They show the utmost patience, professionalism and enthusiasm when interacting with the children and the results are self-evident. The children, through the positivity and professionalism of the staff members, develop to become bright young girls and boys eventually ready to move on to kindergarten. As such, I am most proud of my staff.
What inspired you to become an educator?
What has inspired me to become an educator is the ability to witness babies and toddlers grow and develop into wonderful young, respectful and loving children through the love and effort we, as educators, dedicate towards them. This experience is something I cherish and, as an educator, I have been blessed to continuously experience it.
What is your philosophy about educating children?
My philosophy when it comes to educating children is to embrace patience and love when trying to educate them about new ideas, values and subjects. The children we deal with are in a crucial developmental stage and as such, it is absolutely critical to be as loving and as understanding as possible and implementing the idea of positive motivation, i.e. rewarding them for effort, participation and understanding, when educating them.

Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centre:
“The centre is extremely helpful and the educators are all friendly and amazing with the children. The programs meet the children’s needs and allow them to explore their imagination. Highly recommended.”
“…Anita the Director and their staff are fantastic with my daughter. She has truly settled in and loves going to ‘school’. The fact that she doesn’t want to come home in the afternoon, and wants to attend every day of the week is testament to the work that they do! The staff are so friendly and both my children have learnt so much since they started attending. I love the warm and welcoming atmosphere as soon as I arrive and my eldest always begs to stay that little bit longer. Thank you girls for your professionalism and great attitudes you have shown in the time my children attended.”
“Very friendly, educated, caring and loving staff. The centre has two big rooms, very big play area with healthy environment and with lots of sunshine. They plan very good learning and fun activities. We have recently moved to Australia and my son was not even speaking English. The whole staff is very friendly with him and he got adjusted in few weeks. Very surprising for us. He now just loves to go there. We are very happy with his progress. Our friends are able to get the change from my son’s behavior. Thank you for the staff and I recommend this centre to everyone.”
“My daughter loves coming to this friendly, home-like centre. The staff are all very professional and do such a great job with the kids. We have used 2 other day care centres before and none of them compare to First Grammar Holsworthy.”
“Very impressed with the service. My child has been in childcare before and was very unsettled, now he’s having a great time. Also great staff – Thanks”
