What makes you passionate about working in childcare:
The love that children share is honest and raw, it's amazing how as educators we can help mould, guide and support every individual child.
We are able to build connections with children from their very first day in our care which ultimately allows us to have connects with the whole family.
 
What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare:
When I think about every funny or memorable moment I instantly become flooded with emotions. Over the last 8 years I have been able to watch children attend my work as babies and eventually be old enough to graduate as mature, capable, extraordinary little ones. I believe this is one of the most memorable moment in my career, knowing the impact i as an Educator had on these children is just the most rewarding, enjoyable and satisfying overall feeling and something I will cherish forever.
