Centre Manager - First Grammar Gumnut Drive

"Our passionate educators always strive to offer the best possible care for all our children.”

My early childhood and care career began in 2016. I started working at First Grammar Gumnut Drive in January 2023. I have a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and a Bachelor's in Information Systems.  

I first joined the Early Childhood sector as an Educator. Whist working in the rooms I developed a great passion for children's development in their first five years. Being a mother myself, I wanted to create an environment that enables children to discover the world around them with awe and ensure a nurturing, safe environment is always maintained. 

All children learn through play. All young children learn through meaningful hands-on experiences through touching, and moving. Access to early childhood education can provide children with social, emotional and cognitive experiences that help them become independent and develop a positive attitude to learning. 

Here at our Langwarrin centre, our educators encourage children to explore with open ended resources and learning experiences. We have some long standing team members who have been here for nearly ten years. Our passionate educators always strive to offer the best possible care for all our children. 

We have a strong focus on open, respectful communication with our families in our centre tours. We regularly seek our families’ feedback on the day-to-day operation of the centre. As a centre we also really enjoy hosting special events for our families that give them the opportunity to engage with our First Grammar Gumnut Drive community.
