Qualifications: Certificate III and Diploma in Early Childhood Education
 
What makes you passionate about Early Childhood Education? I love watching children grow and thrive. Seeing their faces light up when they have something that they think is exciting to show or tell you.
 
How long have you been working with children?  10 years in total I started off as a children’s party host at a bowling Alley. Been with Affinity education for 7 years.
 
What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? There is so many! The most funniest I would have to say is all the dress up days and having children be brutally honest with you!
 
Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? We have an amazing team of friendly educators that have been in the industry for a long time. We have updated resources, incursions that visit, tech station in kinder room and pet fish!
Our educators deliver interesting programs and lots of support for first time families in our younger rooms.
