What our parents think.

Norfolk Street is an amazing centre! The care and professionalism they bring to looking after for our little people makes dropping them off to go to work significantly less stressful knowing they are in such good hands. Everyday they come home slightly dusty, but full of smiles, new words, expressions and joy! They are always happy to go to kindy to see their friends and educators, and we couldn’t ask for a safer, more caring place for our kids.

I could write something better. But good and sent is better than perfect and not getting sent in at all. See more

INSPIRATIONAL CENTRE MANAGER

Q: How long have you been in the early childhood education industry?

A: I have been working in the early childhood industry for just under 20 years.

Q: What are your Qualifications and where did you obtain them from?

A: I have a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood), which I obtained from Queensland University of Technology (QUT). I also have a Certificate IV in Assessment and Workplace Training from TAFE Queensland.

Q: What motivated you work in in early childhood education industry?

A: What motivated me to work in the early childhood industry is the fact that I love working with young children. I want to inspire them and make a difference in children’s lives, and the early years is the best time to start. Experiences in the early years shapes a child’s understanding of themselves and the world around them.

Q: What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
A: The most rewarding aspect of my role is seeing those bright, shining children’s faces that greet me each day. They are so full of hope and curiosity! I love their excitement as they eagerly share news and information about their lives. But most of all, I enjoy the special cuddles that they openly throw upon you.

Q: What are your goals for the children in your centre/program?

A: I have always been passionate about the process of learning and developing of all ages and found teaching and educating children to be my big mission in life. As an early childhood educator my goal is to provide an environment designed to foster children’s learning and development. One that is inviting, flexible, safe and responsive to the interests and abilities of all children whilst encouraging them to actively engage in learning.

Q: How do you encourage children and families to collaborate and engage in the program?

A: I believe parents are their child’s first and most influential educators. My goal is to work in partnership with families to build a strong sense of belonging with each child, whilst using the Early Years Learning Framework to guide our planning for children’s learning. With shared goals between families and educators; together we will create an atmosphere for children to be confident and engaging while experiencing childhood as it should be. Families will be openly welcomed into the program and encouraged to participate, as well as fostering open communication and collaboration. I aim to create a sense of belonging for children, family and all educators who are a part of our centre. I have a strong commitment to continuous improvement and value feedback from families and the community and will always strive to provide excellent standards at the centre. Everyone will be celebrated as learners, working together in an interactive learning community. An environment of secure, positive learning will be established, open to be enjoyed by children and adults. I look forward to sharing special memories with all our families.

Frequently asked questions.

Q. What are your opening hours?

A. We are open between 7:00am – 6:00pm. 52 weeks of the year, closed on public holidays

Q. Are you Child Care Benefit/Child Care Rebate approved?

A. Yes we are! To aid in the payment of childcare fees, the Department of Human Services has provided access to Child Care Benefit (CCB) and the Child Care Rebate for eligible families. Parents, please note it is your responsibility to apply for these schemes with the Family Assistance Office on 136 150. Once CCB/CCR is approved, you will need to provide the Centre with your Customer Reference Number (CRN) and date of birth (DOB) along with your child’s CRN and DOB so a formal enrolment can be made. Your benefit/rebate will then be subtracted from the full fees owing, leaving a gap fee which is the amount families pay to the Centre, meaning less out of pocket expense.
