What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I love being able to help children and their families on a holistic level.  Childcare in today’s society is more than care and education for children, it is about the well being of a family unit. I am passionate about families realising that they are their child’s first teacher and giving them support to raise capable individuals.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? I used to work one on one with a child that had Global development Delay and it was questioned if he would reach his milestones like other children or at all. I remember hearing that he was going into his first year of Primary school and getting teary as I had, in a small way been part of his journey and his success.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Milestones is a centre that all educators are dedicated to putting children’s needs first and encourages children to be individuals. Educators strive to engage children’s learning through their interest and keep them connected to the environments and people around them.  We listen to families needs and wants and respect their values as parents following their home cultures and routines.
