Our people

We have qualified Early Childhood teachers on staff, which means your child will benefit from receiving care and education from educators with experience in both childcare centres and primary schools. We’re passionate about early childhood and respect that each child is unique. We love working with them in a way that allows them to follow their own interests and feel free to imagine and create.

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? Being a part of such a warm and inviting environment where I work with some of the best educators is a huge contributing factor. Every day I get to come in and get inspired by families, children and fellow educators. It’s so amazing that I can form connections to such wonderful families from our community and watch and help their children grow and develop into amazing confidant participants in our community.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? My favourite thing about working with children is they make me laugh – From asking to come home with me, to telling me stories of what their parents do at home, to letting me know when mum has a baby in her belly and even some marriage proposals. You can't help but smile and laugh when you see their faces when they are learning something new.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Milestones Toowoomba is the best choice for your child as we aspire to provide quality care and outstanding professionalism that focuses on the needs of your child. Each day we spend every moment focusing on respecting, leading, assisting and nurturing the agency of your child and every one of their needs. We do this by realising the full potential in every child and acknowledging their individuality by encouraging them to go above and beyond.
