Our Team

The most significant feature of our service is our team.

The quality of the education your children receive in an early childhood service is directly linked to the educators knowledge, skills and attitudes in conjunction with higher staff qualifications and engagement with high quality professional development. This impacts on enriching not only your child’s current wellbeing and learning outcomes but also has significant long term benefits into adulthood.

We pride ourselves on the professional relationships that we develop with families and children. Our educators are very welcoming and approachable and we have a wide range of individual talents, skills and abilities. The staff work in collaboration with families and the community and we are committed to ongoing self-assessment and reflective practice.
