Service Manager at our Childcare Centre, Northam
“I enjoy working with families as I do believe it takes a village to raise a child and I am always grateful when families allow me to be a part of their journey, we here at Sparrow Early Learning Northam are a community of educators who interact with children and allow those children to grow in a safe and healthy environment.” Read more.
I have been working in the Early Childhood Education and Care Sector for over 14 years and I hold my Diploma in Children’s Services.
The first five years of children’s development is so important and something I am so passionate about, and I believe it is our role as educators to foster and assist in developing children’s interests, strengths, curiosity, imagination and understanding of the world around them while celebrating all the children’s wonderful firsts and the little moments and milestones as they grow.
I am very proud of the dedication, love, and commitment that our Educators put into practice every day with our children and families, and I feel really privileged to mentor them into being the best versions of themselves. We work very closely with each other, support each other, and celebrate each other’s successes. We aim to create inviting open ended environments for all families and children to feel and engage in secure, respectful & responsive relationships with a deep sense of belonging.
My team and I look forward to welcoming you to our Service and being a part of your child’s learning journey.
My qualifications & experience:
- Diploma of Children’s Services
- Over 14 years of experience in early education & childcare
The Sparrow Way.
The Sparrow Way combines proven international early learning methods to create a unique practice designed for today’s society. Guided by the principles of Reggio Emilia and underpinned by The Early Years Framework for Australia, we embrace children’s inherent abilities to learn and develop, creating an environment for them to find solutions through exploration, discovery and invention.
Our childcare centre in Northam promotes an open-door policy where families can visit and walk through the centre at any time during operational hours.
Once families have completed a tour, they will receive an enrolment pack with all necessary paperwork.
Once enrolled, the orientation process begins. The orientation process is an arrangement made between families and staff that supports the family’s needs.
