Service Manager at our Childcare Centre, Sippy Downs

“My name is Stephanie and I am the Service Manager at Sparrow Early Learning Sippy Downs.” Read more.

“I love working within the childcare sector and being able to spend time with children as they grow. I enjoy collaborating with families and seeing their children grow and develop as they travel through the service.

I began my career in the sector at 15 years old doing work experiences, I proceeded to do my Cert 3 in children’s services as a school-based trainee. After finishing my placement in long day care I moved to Outside School Hours Care from when I left school until 2020, within this I worked my way up to management and leadership roles. I changed over to long day care to move away from split shifts and continued on my manager roles within long day care settings. Throughout my time within the sector, I have worked with children 6 weeks right through to 13 years.  I have a strong passion for inclusion support and supporting children who have trauma backgrounds. I believed that children are competent and capable learners, with the ability to direct their own learning. Our role as educators is to support children in their ability to make decisions and develop their sense of belonging.

I have a strong passion for sustainable practices and improving the impact that we make on the environment and the future. I like to bring this into the workplace through the resources we use and how we approach our day to day practices. I love bringing real plants into environments and sharing my passion for change with people. This aligns well with the Reggio approach, through upcycling of furniture, natural resources and reducing the plastic we have within the service. Through this I am constantly reflecting and working towards gaining new knowledge.

I’m excited to be service manager here at Sippy Downs and support the children, families and educators towards new service and personal goals. On behalf of our dedicated team, we welcome your enquiries and look forward to sharing your children’s early learning journey with you.”

My qualifications & experience:

  • Cert III in Children’s Services
  • Diploma of Early Childhood Education
  • Over 13 years of experience in early education & childcare
