Centre Manager - First Grammar Westleigh
"Making each child feel included, safe, secure, connected and supported is essential. "
I started working in early learning in 2000. I joined the team at First Grammar Westleigh in 2022. I hold a Diploma in children's services and Diploma in Leadership management.
Through my years of experience, I have worked in many children's services, long day care centres and Pre-schools and managed a number of services. I chose to work in the early education sector because an educator can greatly impact a child's growth and development. With the right guidance, they can become capable lifelong learners. It's rewarding for me to watch children grow and flourish at their own pace through the provision of warm and inviting environments.
I believe children have the right to play and learn through play, creativity self-selected investigation based on their interests. All children learn at their own pace, and it is our job to foster their development and encourage them to build strong, secure, connected relationships with others. Making each child feel included, safe, secure, connected and supported is essential.
Attending quality child care centres makes a big difference in children's cognitive, language, and social development to prepare them for school. At First Grammar Westleigh, our team of educators are all passionate and experienced. They are dedicated to making our centre a home away from home for the children.
Building strong relationships with our families is of high priority. We value diversity and are inclusive with all our practices. We have a two-way communication platform through Xplor.
I look forward to meeting you and your family and supporting your child on their learning journey.
