Meet our Centre Manager – Tegan Graham

I began my career in Early Childhood Education and Care in 2004 in Canberra. I have a range of qualifications including Advanced Diploma Children’s Services, Diploma Management, Certificate of Teaching and Assessment, Infant Massage Qualified Instructor, NRL Sports Trainer and I am currently studying towards a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood and Primary).

My ‘why’ for working in early learning is the belief that children deserve to have opportunities to inquire, wonder and investigate the world around them in supportive and nurturing environments. I am passionate about educator development and focus on critical reflection to drive continuous improvement in early learning services.

The educator team at Lavender Lane Conder is an amazing group of diverse educators. Each educator brings wonderful strengths through their passions, interests and knowledge. Many of our team have been at the service for 5+ years and this staff retention is a testament to their integrity, passion, innovation and dedication to our local community and families.

A fun fact about me: I love vegemite and at home I have a variety of reptiles including snakes and lizards. My favourite lizard is a Blue Tongue!

Hear from our families

“Lavender Lane is a great childcare centre. My son has been attending since he was 4 months old (now 18 months). He gets so excited to go to ‘school’ and runs straight in to his room to greet all his educators with a hug and a kiss. The educators are always friendly, approachable and supportive. Being able to see the trusting relationship my son has built with all the educators, I know he is in brilliant care. A huge thank you to the educators that play such an important role in shaping the development of our little boy, we can’t thank you enough for all that you do.”

  • Caitlin

 

“I highly recommend Lavender Lane Childcare. My little girl loves going there! She knows every staff member by name and feels comfortable and confident in their company. The staff listen attentively to parents and children. They are patient, caring and professional.”

  • Laura

 

“Lavender Lane has been great! Alice has been attending since 6 months, and it was immediately clear how much faster she moved through her early development as opposed to being at home with me all day. The educators there have been nothing short of brilliant, accommodating and cheerful, helping us through typical baby issues, like diet, sleep, socialisation, and sensory development, and more recently early learning steps. We couldn’t be happier here!”

  • Jen

 

“I was so nervous about my daughter starting daycare and I’m so glad I picked Lavender Lane ! All the staff are extremely friendly, the centre in secure and clean. I absolutely love the pictures you are sent throughout the day, they give descriptions of what they have been doing for the day and what skills they are practicing. I love the ladies in my daughters room, I really feel they love their jobs and it shows “

  • Alexandra

 

“Lavender Lane are Fantastic! We are kept up to date with our daughters progress each day and all the staff are really lovely and professional. The centre is always clean and tidy and best of all it never smells like dirty nappies! My daughter always has fun and is learning every day. It really makes returning back to work easier knowing that your child is deeply cared for and being nurtured the next best thing to being with you. I would HIGHLY recommend Lavender Lane!”

  • Maddie

 

The staff there have been so lovely and really made it really easy for me to return to work. I didn’t have to worry about Poppy because I knew the staff were caring and that I could call at any time.  Poppy really seems to love it there and is always having fun when I drop her off and pick her up.  Ash and Deb always made me feel confident that Poppy was doing ok and Jo and Elsa were always really gentle and affectionate with her.  Sad to be leaving the room, although I’m sure poppy is going to have a great time in tiny tots.”

  • Amy and Ben

 

“My children go to Lavender Lane Conder and my family have been going through some tough times lately and Heidi has been nothing short of amazing. Her understanding and compassion has made this process so much easier and I would like to say thank you. She deserves an award!”
