Centre Manager profile

Leah Murray

How long have you been working in childcare? 

Since I was 18 years of age.

What is your favourite part of working at the centre? 

The children – and the energy that the children bring to the centre every day. Every day is different, energising and inspiring. The children are amazing, so full of wonder and inquiry, accepting of their world and are transparent with their expression of their sheer delight of being in each other presence.

What qualifications do you hold?

I hold a Bachelor of Teaching which I studied at UNE.

What are you most passionate about?

Guiding and supporting children’s understanding of life, assisting them to make sense of their world and teach them skills and knowledge that will assist them through life’s journey.

What are you most proud of at your centre?

The natural environments that we have created for children to engage in, explore and experiment to satisfy their curiosity and inquisitiveness. We encourage children to use their sense of wonder, imagination, creativity and to self-direct their play through ability to comprehend their learnings.

What is your philosophy about educating children?

I believe in the words of Vygotsky – Let children learn when they are ready to absorb and comprehend their learnings, guide them to reason, and care for others. Teach children the essence of life, caring, loving, accepting, support, being patient and let them be their natural beautiful spiritual selves.

As a child what did you want to be when you grew up?

I longed to be a home economics teacher – I love food and the combination of tastes and textures – how ingredients complement each other, the unique composition that each food holds, and the healing powers it brings to the body.

Do you have any hobbies?

Supporting community groups and ventures to make a difference in people’s lives, to put people in a brighter and happier state of being.

All three of my children have attended a kindy patch centre over the years and they have been lovely but Eleebana is just sensational.

“It is with much pleasure that I write this review. I am comforted by the level and quality of care both my grandson and I have received from Kindy Patch Eleebana. Though recently new to the centre we received individual care and attention from staff in the room, each taking the time to get to know my grandson and family. The staff spent time with us both during orientation and I was thrilled to find such devoted and caring staff. Leah the director is a remarkable woman, knowing each child and family personally. My grandson settled quickly into his new environment at Kindy Patch Eleebana and has loved it ever since. He is always welcomed with open arms by both Leah, and staff. We receive detailed feedback from staff regarding my grandson’s day, and I cannot speak more highly enough of Kindy Patch Eleebana recommending the centre to friends. Thank you for making my grandson’s experience in child care so smooth and comfortable for us all.”

My two boys love going to Kindy Patch at Eleebana. The staff are fantastic and take a keen interest in each child’s development and welfare. I have watched as my boys have developed new skills and learnt to interact positively with children of varying ages and backgrounds. I would definitely recommend the Eleebana Kindy Patch to any parent looking for a daycare centre with great facilities and wonderful staff.”

You could not ask for a better child care service than Kindy Patch Eleebana! The staff are amazing, generous, caring and just plain fantastic with the children. My daughter absolutely loves going there each Friday and has a close bond with all of the staff. The food is fantastic and it’s so nice to know how fresh and healthy it always is. As a parent I always feel welcomed there and have even been invited to participate in the children’s learning experiences, sharing some of my own talents. We are so happy that our son has gained a place there next year aswell. It really helps knowing that you can drop them off in the morning and not have a single worry about them all day!!”
