Our People

The Bundjalung people believe we came from the stars. We acknowledge this belief in the sense of uniqueness and individuality and embed this in our practices by providing flexible and child orientated routines.
Here at Aussie Kindies we are committed to providing a warm, safe, secure and nurturing environment. A place where children are encouraged to explore, play and express themselves.
 
We welcome every child with warmth and fun. Our goal for each child is for them to become confident and independent thinkers by providing stimulating, varied, fun and creative opportunities to play and learn. We seek to strengthen critical thinking, intellectual curiosity and informed risk-taking.  
 
Establishing genuine, responsive and respectful partnerships between educators, families and our community to engage in shared decision making and to utilise each other’s strengths and knowledge. Understanding that the parents are the first teachers and we need to follow their lead.
 
We value children growing up with the understanding, skills and dispositions to be caring people and effective learners, able to contribute to their world and to enjoy rich and successful relationships with others.
 
We value our earth. We are aware that our children will be inheriting this planet and therefore we are passionate about sustainable practices. We educate children in developing a healthy respect for our earth, nurturing a love of nature and encourage them to be active members of the community.

Years in childcare: 
10 Years

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? Having the opportunity to create a home away from home for our children, giving them the support and security they need to become strong independent thinkers. Offering children space to play to learn, develop and grow. I really enjoy forming friendships with families and working collaboratively to help support the development of each child in our care.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? It’s hard to place a specific moment that has been one of the funniest and most memorable. Daily I have such beautiful moments with our children, the simple things when they show kindness to each other is when my heart melts. The funny things they say and the way they see the world with such innocents and imagination.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? We provide a caring, nurturing, safe environment for children to grow and learn. We encourage families to have open communication and always offer support with those daily challenges that families face. Our team of motivated happy educators work extremely hard doing what they love, they laugh and play with children and this is how we as a team show a supportive play based learning environment for each individual child.
