Our caring educators love children and many of them have been with us for up to ten years. Our educators are part of different cultures creating a diverse community in the centre. These cultures are shared with the families and children through everyday activities and learning opportunities as a way to understand and communicate with each other as a community.

We appreciate that the early years are a critical time to spark children’s curiosity, encourage exploration and develop a lifelong love of learning. Early Learning Centre Smithfield is proud to offer you and your family a close community and a strong sense of belonging.

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? Every day is new, you can’t predict how each day will flow. I love to watch the children grow and flourish in to independent people who have formed friendships that you hope will last a lifetime. Child Care should be a happy memory that they will cherish forever.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? I am still in regular contact with most of my previous employees both here in Australia and England which is where I began my child care career and also some of the children I cared for……some who are now Adults themselves. Child Care is not just a profession for me….it’s a way of life.  I like to think I am ‘once seen….never forgotten’
