Our People

Early Learning Centre Summer Pines is lucky to have such a friendly and committed team of qualified carers who love working with children. Our close-knit team work well together to create a homely atmosphere in our centre, which extends to the way we interact with the children. As positive role models, we are dedicated to making your child feel safe and comfortable so that they can relax and be themselves, which in turn, inspires them to learn, explore and make new friends.

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I believe no job gives me the variety that early childhood education does and I feel honoured to be part of children's lives for such a long time. Life is certainly never dull around children and I believe as educators we get so much back from them too. I am also passionate about inspiring my team to be the best they can be every day.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? My favourite thing about working with children is they make me laugh - you can't help but smile and laugh when you see their faces when they are learning something new.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? We are a group of caring and motivated individuals passionate about early education and care. We provide a wonderful environment for your child to learn and grow in. We provide spacious indoor rooms, which are filled with natural and engaging resources as well as home comforts to give your child a real sense of belonging. Our educators are dedicated to making your child’s day filled with positive reinforcement and many magical moments. We plan exciting and stimulating environments for your child to grow and develop in every day that they are in our care. Our educators have a wealth of experience and knowledge, which allows each individual to bring their own unique ideas and creativity to our centre.
