What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I have worked with families and children in both the Human Service and Children’s Services industries now for 11 years. I believe that early childhood is the most significant stage of a person’s development and am passionate about empowering each child to develop and grow up as a competent and confident learner and communicator who is healthy in mind, body and spirit.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? Each and every day I spend time with philosophers who wonder, scientists who experiment, comedians who laugh, artists who create, pioneers who explore and humanitarians who care; and I am lucky enough to go on this epic journey of discovery with each of them – making every special moment truly memorable.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Tadpoles Brisbane Airport is a family community. We believe that it takes a village to raise a child and pride ourselves on the strong partnerships that we develop with each and every family. We strive to be each child’s home away from home and aim to help each child feel that their voice is heard and that they are a valued member of our ‘family’.
