Our People

Everyone feels welcomed by our warm-hearted and experienced educators. We support every child to be themselves, whether they’re in the nursery, outside school hours care or in between. Our educators are positive, supportive and kind people who focus on your child’s strengths and needs through creativity and inclusion. We always aim to create a sense of belonging for each child.

We are a multicultural group and we respect the cultural diversity of our children and their families. Together, we form a learning community with diverse backgrounds who enjoy different cultural events and interactions.

What makes you passionate about working in childcare?
Knowing that we are making a difference and giving the children the best possible start. Watching the children grow as individuals and part of a community.

Too many to pick just one but watching children’s faces light up when they experience something for the first time.
