Kristy Wheeler

Centre Manager - Welly Road Early Learning Centre (Mount Barker)

“I am a positive person, and I really enjoy sharing that positivity with the children.”

My passion has always been working with the younger generation. I have 14 years of experience in the child care and early learning sector. I have been the lead educator for every age range, and a mentor to new educators or those who are currently studying.

In 2007, I completed a placement here at the Welly Road Early Learning Centre. At this centre, I enjoyed exploring and confirming my passion for early childhood education and care. I was transferred to a sister centre in 2008 and came back to the Welly Road Early Learning Centre in early 2021 as the centre manager.

I love participating in the messy play experiences and helping the educators create and maintain exciting programs and learning opportunities. Each child has their unique ideas and beliefs. The child-led play-based learning approach allows the children to explore those ideas and form their sense of identity in a secure environment.

I am a positive person, and I really enjoy sharing that positivity with the children. The learning opportunities here at the Welly Road Early Learning Centre are endless. The children learn to develop their sense of self alongside their peers and educators. The children can develop relationships with their educators and peers and become comfortable socialising with other children. This is where they will learn about the world and their community.

We have a passionate team here at Early Learning Services Welly Road (Mount Barker). Our team of educators are qualified, dedicated and friendly. Their greatest enjoy is coming up with new ideas to encourage the children to interact and enjoy learning opportunities. I look forward to developing relationships with families and the children to assist them through their early learning journey.
