Mandy (NSW)


What sort of qualifications do you have, and how did you get them?
I completed my Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree in Journalism through Deakin University in Melbourne. I was so proud to successfully complete my Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care last year through a traineeship. 

What is the most valuable thing you’ve learned from the children you work with?
Children are creative and imaginative. Children know no bounds, they know no cliches and hence they can think out of the box. This is a wonderful quality and I am learning to look at life from different perspectives each day from children.

What experiences from your own life have been most useful in your work with young children?
In 2016, I became a mum. I discovered I have a real gift at connecting with children and helping them feel settled. I have a real passion for helping children belong at our centre, and for developing quality relationships with both children and their families.
