Centre Manager - St Albans Main Road East Early Learning Centre
“I find it very rewarding and enjoy coming to work every day and building positive relationships with my families, children, and team.”
My career in early childhood education and care commenced in 1996 and I began working at St Albans Main Road East Early Learning Centre in 2010. I hold a Diploma of Community Services (Child Care) and an Advanced Diploma of Children’s Services.
Since l was young, I always had a passion for interacting with children as l have a number of nieces and nephews that l grew up looking after and l knew from early on that l wanted to further this passion of working with children and start my career in early education and child care. I am very dedicated and passionate about my current position as Centre Manager. I find it very rewarding and enjoy coming to work every day and building positive relationships with my families, children, and team.
All children are unique and different and have different needs and to provide the best quality care of all children. Our approach to developing a love of learning with children we provide a safe, caring, and nurturing environment where all children, families all feel welcome, safe, and happy while at our service. Providing positive interactions and listening to all children as they are all individual and have different needs.
Our team is extremely passionate and dedicated about creating a early education and child care centre that is a home away from home for both our families and children. Our centre is very multicultural, and we celebrate diversity of many different cultures. We are fortunate to have many educators who speak a variety of languages including Vietnamese, Hindi, Arabic (Dinki) and many more. We work closely with families to build positive relationships to ensure that everyone feels welcome at our service.
We ensure we follow policies and procedures in ensuring the health, safety and well-being of all team members, children and families when coming to our centre. You can read more about our commitment to safety here.
We have long-serving, multicultural team members who reflect our local community. Many have been with been with St Albans Main Road East Early Learning Centre for over tenyears. It is the sort of Centre where everyone knows all the children, no matter which room they are in. We are such a close-knit team it feels like one big family.
Myself and my team are all aware of the enrolment process. We provide help, support and assistance to new families and explain the whole process of what they need to do to enrol their child at our centre.
We go through the enrolment form so families fully understand what is required, explain that they need to complete the activity test which will determine how much per cent and hours they will receive for their child. Ask them to provide a copy of their Child’s Birth Certificate and immunization summary. We offer as much information to the families so that they fully understand the enrolment process and feel supportive.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am always happy and have been told that l make people laugh!
Our team at St Albans Main Road East Early Learning Centre cannot wait to meet your family and begin this exciting journey with you.
