Our People

Our educators are an extremely important part of the Woy Woy community, and we love working with the local children. With these long-term familiar faces to greet them each morning, children always settle quickly into the centre.

However, age and familiarity are not our only defining factors; we offer top-notch care and kindness to every child who passes through our doors. It is very important to us that all children feel a real sense of belonging as we know that this creates an environment in which children feel open to learning.

 What makes you passionate about Early Childhood Education? I am passionate about providing opportunities for children to connect with nature and to make a real difference in the way children approach learning in their life. I am passionate about learning why children do what they do. I enjoy learning about children’s behaviour, learning styles and needs. I am passionate about nurturing strong and positive connections between Educators and children. When there is a strong and positive relationship between children and their Educators, children feel safe, secure, and confident. I am passionate about creating learning experiences that foster creativity in children. After creating these experiences, I enjoy observing how children react, manipulate resources, and engage in the space.
 
What makes your centre different from others? Here at Aussie Kindies Woy Woy, we understand the needs of our local area. We venture out into our community and build connections with local community members. We have good relationships with the local schools in the area and work with local health professionals to support the individual needs of children. We take the time to get to know our families and many of us have worked here for almost a decade - some longer! We take a holistic approach and pay attention to children's physical, personal, social, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing, as well as cognitive aspects of learning. Most importantly, we have fun!
