I began working in Early Education in 2014 as a certificate III whilst simultaneously studying my diploma of Early Education. I previously worked for Community Kids Cessnock, one of our G8 Education’ sister centres, where I work through many roles including lead educator, educational leader, and assistant centre manager, before taking on the centre manager role there in mid-2020. I took on the opportunity in May 2022 as the centre manager here at Kindy Patch Largs to be closer to my home and my family.
Originally, I was considering teaching within the school setting, but decided to take a chance and to explore Early Education. This has been very fruitful for me allows me to incorporate many of my own hobbies such as building, design, planning, landscaping, and gardening.
At Kindy Patch Largs, we encourage and support children to explore, to investigate, to work both independently and collaboratively. This allows children the chance to build meaningful relationships and to build independence and agency; as well as to develop their social and emotional health and wellbeing.
Our team is a group of passionate educators who live for what they do. We have team members that have been at our centre for 20 years or more. We strive to create an environment filled with inspiration and support and it is something our team does well. They have years of experience, years of knowledge to share and years love and support given.
The best way I can support our families as the centre manager is by being approachable and available. I believe the most important aspect of being a great leader is to be kind.
I look forward to welcoming your family to Kindy Patch Largs.
