Centre ManagerI started my early childhood journey at Kindy Patch Springfield in 2014 as the kindergarten teacher. Kindy Patch has been the only early education centre I have worked at and I have had the pleasure of watching so many little citizens of Springfield and surrounds grow over the years. I hold an associate degree in education studies.

I have worked in many roles throughout the years at Kindy Patch from kindergarten teacher, educational leader, workplace health and safety, assistant centre manager and now for the next step in my journey as centre manager.
When I first decided to set out on the path of becoming an early childhood teacher, it was my belief that children are set off on their best journey when they receive quality education and care. When educated professionals can support children in their growth and development, this impacts a child not just for childhood, but for life. I value play in children’s learning and have seen firsthand many children thriving in a play-based setting.

I am supported by my fantastic team so I can ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all children is accounted for. We are a very multicultural centre with many of our educators being able to speak multiple languages, which supports the many cultural backgrounds within our community. Family is a child’s first educators and when we can collaborate and support our families, our children have the best outcomes. I believe we need to support parents and while we focus on the child, family also plays a special part of our community at Kindy Patch.

I look forward to watching future generations of children grow and leading my team to provide the best quality education and care for the future.

Play is essential to every child’s learning and development. It enables children to make decisions, learn, take risks, and have fun. Our experienced team plan play-based learning activities in line with national standards. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is designed to engage in your child’s interests and allow them to experience each day in a new way, supporting their learning in the lead-up to primary school.  

Our Early Learning Curriculum also provides children with:

  • Real Life experiences: Children participate in fun and exciting experiences such as gardening, using tools, basic cooking skills, independence such as setting the table, washing bowls, wiping their own faces.
  • Sustainability Program: The current sustainable practices in place includes the centre’s sustainability leaders setting challenges for the team. Recycled materials used in learning experiences and open-ended play experiences.
  • Music and movement programs: Our music programs have been designed to help develop fundamental skills that help support children’s self-regulation, memory and concentration.  
  • Community engagement activities: We often have visits from local police, and other community services in Springfield Lakes to help familiarise the children with their local community. We also have Bush Kindy excursions to our local park Robelle Domain and local primary schools (in Springfield Lakes to assist our Kindergarten children with their transition to ‘big school’. 
  • Bush Kinder programs: Children head to the local bushland to connect with nature and learn in the great outdoors.
  • Yoga Program: The children enjoy regular yoga sessions at the centre, where they learn about posture, strength and mindfulness. 

Nursery Room (6 weeks – 2 years) 

Learning starts from before birth. Our nursery Educators have created a welcoming and nurturing environment where each baby feels safe to explore and discover new things – through their senses, their communication, cues (body language, facial expression, and sounds) and by experimenting.  

 On any given day you can see the nursery children engaging in all types of meaningful play, such as water play, music time, story time and more. Each day provides a brand new, exciting opportunity for our nursery children.   

Toddler Room: (15 months – 3 years) 

Our Teachers and Educators encourage the toddler children to learn through play to help enhance their sensory-motor development. This learning happens through carefully planned music, dance, games and reading experiences. On any given day the children can be seen developing their numeracy by building a tower, sorting objects, pointing and identifying shapes and patterns and participating in counting songs and games. 

Children in our toddler rooms are encouraged to participate in group play. Group play is important, as it helps our toddlers develop important social skills such as, turn taking, developing self-confidence and emotional self-regulation. Our team helps children through talking, planning and role modelling.   

Kindergarten and School Readiness Program: (3 -6 years) 

Kindergarten is a unique time for learning with peers and developing skills for later learning.  Our play-based Kindergarten program encourages active engagement in learning and supports a range of positive developmental outcomes including resilience, independence, critical thinking, and creativity. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more, your child will become school ready.
