Our People

One of the most vital qualities of our centre is our educators. Our team is made up of many diverse educators -- men and women from different backgrounds who bring so much enthusiasm and dedication to the table. What unites them is their scrupulous attention to detail, their warmth, and their investment in every child's present and future.

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I am passionate about working in childcare because I believe that children need a space where they can believe in magic and the wonders of the world around them and that we allow for them to do that. I am privileged to be part of a child's early learning journey and be able to help them explore and learn through play in a space where they are supported. 

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? There are too many to list, but I’d say the highlight for me is watching a little one trying to complete a simple task, often ones we take for granted, and they finally achieve them on their own and they look at you with the proudest smile. It makes my day every time!

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? We have a beautiful centre, with very diverse group of educators who are all passionate about early childhood and are very supportive of each other and our families. We embrace having fun and learning with the children every day. We are here to support the family as a whole, not just their child attending the service. We follow the Lifelong Learning Program and EYLF curriculum, as well as providing the Queensland Government Approved Kindergarten Program.  We also offer Vacation care and before and after school care.
