Grace – Toddler Room Educator

I deeply value the relationships between an educator, a child and their family for I believe they build safety and security within young children, allowing them to explore and play. I agree with the many early childhood theorists whereby children’s environments are thoughtfully designed to reflect the capabilities of each child, provoking curiosity and intrigue and in this way, I believe the more meaningful and valuable children’s investigations are. I believe in the importance of motivating children to be active and hands-on with their explorations for a child’s determination fosters an understanding of learning and their discoveries a joy for learning.

Jane – Centre Cleaner

Hi my name is Jane and I am the centre’s cleaner. Like Sue and Lynne I came with the building. With the help of the educators, we try to keep on top of what the children play with, but along with what they play with is part of being a child. When I’m not at work, your children like to keep an eye out for me as I live next door, especially when I mow the yard and have to hand back the toys , hats and rocks that end up in my yard- a great game on their part!
