Centre Manager - Early Learning Services Rangeville (Toowoomba)
“I strive to create an inclusive, diverse, and culturally responsive learning environment where children feel valued and respected. ”
I started working in early learning in 2014. I joined the team at Rangeville Early Education Centre in 2016. I hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care.
I believe that early childhood education plays a critical role in shaping a child's future, and I am proud to be a part of that process. I was particularly inspired by the idea of creating a safe and nurturing environment where children could learn and grow and where families could feel supported and valued.
Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with children of different ages, backgrounds, and abilities, and I found that each child brings their unique interests, strengths, and challenges to the learning environment. Therefore, it's essential to approach teaching with a child-centred approach, where each child's unique needs and abilities are taken into consideration. I have also learned that young children learn best through play, exploration, and hands-on experiences, so it's important to provide a safe and engaging environment that encourages exploration and discovery. Throughout my career, I have gained a wealth of experience in developing and implementing educational programs that are both engaging and age-appropriate. I strive to create an inclusive, diverse, and culturally responsive learning environment where children feel valued and respected. I also believe in providing opportunities for children to be actively involved in their learning and to follow their interests and passions.
Our centre provides a high-quality, safe and nurturing environment for children. We offer a wide range of activities designed to promote learning through play, exploration, and hands-on experiences. Our educators can offer advice on behaviour management, learning difficulties, and developmental milestones. In summary, attending a dedicated early childhood education and care centre offers children a range of benefits that are simply impossible to replicate at home.
We have dedicated staff members who are experienced and trained in early childhood education and care and understand young children's unique needs and abilities. Many of our team members come from multicultural backgrounds and are always eager to share their cultural experiences and learn from others. We have several team members who have been with us for up to 20 years, which speaks to the dedication and passion they bring to their work. Despite the diversity in our team, we all share a common goal: to provide the best possible care and education to the children in our centre.
As an early childhood educator, I believe that building strong relationships with families is essential for creating a positive and supportive learning environment for children. I strive to communicate regularly with families and to keep them informed about their child's progress and development. I try to address any issues or concerns as quickly and effectively as possible and to work collaboratively with families to find solutions. I offer workshops and seminars on topics such as child development, behaviour management, and literacy, and I provide families with resources such as books, articles, and websites to support their learning. Our team strive to create a warm and welcoming environment where families feel comfortable and supported.
