What makes you passionate about working in childcare? There are many reasons I love working in childcare. Firstly, seeing the children develop their skills, confidence and independence during the time they are with you is amazing. I enjoy the process of developing relationships with the children and their families and being part of their daily lives. Finally, what other job do you get to have lots of hugs and cuddles every day? 

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? After so many years in childcare, I should be able to write to book about funny comments, moments and events. My favourite times are when I have dressed up as a character from a book when telling a story, and all the children have been totally engaged in the storytelling – its magical.  Also being told “I love you Miss Bridget” is pretty special too.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? The biggest asset to Aussie Kindies Cranbourne are definitely the staff who are approachable, friendly and caring – all the values a parent wants in the people who are caring for their child.
