Centre Manager - Earth Kids Early Learning Centre (North Turramurra)

“We create learning experiences and activities through observations of children and developmental domains that we would like the children to scaffold in learning.”

I have been working in early learning childcare since early 2013 and have been at Earth Kids Early Learning Services since 2019. I have a Diploma of Children’s Services and have had experience in the position of 2IC as well as Educational Leader. 

After having two wonderful twin boys, I was inspired to follow my heart and go into childcare. I enjoy the continuous challenges that come with early education, and I value and treasure the time spent with all the wonderful children here. I feel passionate about supporting them through their developmental stages in a fun and happy environment. 

At Earth Kids, we believe a childhood memory is built from a supportive, caring, secure and trusting relationship. It is the foundation for developing positive self-esteem and self-worth and developing confidence to problem solve difficult situations, assisting them in achieving their goals later in life. 

Earth Kids team believe that early childhood education needs planning for learning and should be guided by a group or a child interest, offer the children choice, responsibility and opportunity, be appropriate for a child’s developmental ability and be inclusive of family’s cultures, beliefs and customs (Jean Piaget). We create learning experiences and activities through observations of children and developmental domains that we would like the children to scaffold in learning (Lev Vygotsky). Earth Kids consider the surrounding environment important to include interests of children and to encourage them to investigate, experiment, research and develop their personal skills through play (Reggio Emilia). 

Our team values all parents’ input, assistance and support as we know from experience, a family’s involvement will help the child feel more included, safe and secure in the environment. Connections with families help us assist in planning appropriate experiences for the children by considering each child’s needs, cultural beliefs, and customs. 

Earth Kids team members are all passionate about the care of your child and early learning. Every team member is dedicated to every child attending and will go above and beyond to ensure your child’s happiness and well-being.   

The Earth Kids team and I are always happy to offer help, guidance and assistance and look forward to welcoming your family and your little loved ones into our centre.
