Educators

Our staff are our most valuable asset. Each educator brings their own individual skills and experiences to the classroom enhancing their own personal teaching style.

We believe that the foundation of quality educational childcare for children lies in the experienced and qualified educators in our centre. We encourage and support educators to continue their personal and professional education and development within the workplace both through formal study and on-the-job training.

All of our educators meet the requirements set out by the Education and Care Services National Regulations 2011 and offer the highest levels  of childcare. All staff hold First Aid, Asthma & Anaphylaxis certificates and regularly update this training.

We encourage you to come and visit the centre, meet the educators who will care for, support and educate your child, see the friends your child will make, read about the day’s activities and adventures, let us show and tell the treasures we’ve created and inspect our first class facility and adventure packed playground!
