Centre Manager profile

Nicole Smits

Welcome to Bundaberg Early Learning Centre.

I have been working in the child care industry for 13 years, starting out as an assistant at a local childcare centre. I then completed my Diploma and went on to become a Group Leader working with all ages from six weeks to six years. I have been a Centre Manager for over seven years in the Bundaberg area and I hold an Advanced Diploma and I am currently studying a Diploma in leadership and Management.

I am married, have two children and I am Bundaberg born and bred. Being from the local area really helps me to understand the local community and to connect with families.

I really enjoy my role as a Centre Manager and being a mentor for all educators. I believe in equality and focus on creating a positive team environment.

I enjoy building relationships with families and their children. I enjoy greeting you all with a smile and look forward to hearing about your life and all the journeys along the way. I hope when you walk through the door you feel warm and welcomed by each and every one of our wonderful team.

Here at Bundaberg Early Learning Centre we aim to provide a friendly, enthusiastic, educational environment where the children learn through play. We value the importance of each individual child by implementing the Early Years Learning Framework, Kindergarten Guidelines and My Time Our Place, throughout the centre.

We have an open door policy for all families and we value your role as an integral part of your child’s journey here at the centre. By connecting families to our service it enables us to help your child feel safe and secure in their new environment.

I look forward to meeting you and your children soon.

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

My little girl loves attending the centre. She has learnt sign language and can sign the rainbow song and her colours. The centre is always improving and staff take the time to listen. Very impressive.

I have been a Bundaberg Early Learning Centre (formerly Avoca Little Angels) parent for 4 years now and I could not have been happier with their help and support. My daughter went to pre prep and my son has been there since toddler age. He has needed more help to come out of his shell than my daughter ever did, and when he moved to the junior kindy room he had one of the best carers we could have ever wished for. His name is Mr Peter, and he was the best influence on my son, he got him to start talking and express himself and gave him that little push that was needed. Also Ms Rose gave him the love and understanding he craved while not with me. The managerial staff are fantastic and flexible especially when our family had a health crisis last year and we needed extra days for care. Lastly thanks to Ms Alana who has helped my son prepare for Prep next year!

I find Bundaberg Early Learning Centre (Avoca Little Angels Pre-School and Child Care Centre) great. They cater for all our needs as a working family. I also find that all staff are friendly and they care for my kids as I would.
