I received my Certificate 3 in Children Services in 2014 and am currently studying my Diploma of Children Services at Medowie Gumnuts where you will find me 4 days a week. I try to create a fun, exciting, mind stimulating, safe and caring atmosphere for each child. To be a part of their learning journey brightens my day and I like to feel as though I can do the same for them.

I believe that the most important years of a child’s life is 0-5. This is the stage where they develop the skills that will carry them through life, for example things we take for granted – such as writing our own name. Another belief of mine is that the easiest way for a child to learn is through imaginative play. Preschool is the perfect setting for imaginative and intentional teaching which is crucial to a child’s development.
