Centre Manager - First Grammar Toongabbie

"Play: Play is not frivolous. It is not luxury. It is not something to fit in after completing all the important stuff. Play is the important stuff. Play is a drive, a need, a brain-building must – do"

Our team is special because of everyone’s individual qualities that they each bring to the team. Without the amazing people in this team it wouldn’t make the centre as homely and welcoming when everyone comes into it. The centre is special as we’re all a big family, which is continuously growing every day. 

I began my career in early childhood education six years ago where I studied my Diploma and continued on with completing my bachelor’s degree in Early childhood and Primary education. 

I love being part of children’s learning and growth, watching children explore and experiment the environment as capable learners. 

I am passionate about embedding a warm and nurturing environment where parents feel comfortable leaving their children each day. Where children are able to be themselves and learn to the best of their abilities. I believe children are central to everything we do. I believe that we are creating the future and potentially the next generation of leaders to leader our world. I believe I am part of something spectacular that only us as educators truly understand the world of little minds. 

Every child and family member that comes through our door is welcomed into a big family. We strive to be warm and nurturing where all children are encouraged to grow and explore whilst we are able to work collaboratively together with families to enrich every child’s learning Journey. 

Fun fact: As a child I wanted to be a Teacher, who was just like Miss Honey from Matilda.
