What makes you passionate about working in childcare? Since starting in child care, it was my passion to educate children from a young age and assist them in reaching their developmental milestones as well as making sure they were happy whilst I took them into my care for the day. I enjoy building relationships with parents at the service I am in to ensure they can feel at ease when they leave their child for the day.  

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? There are so many children I have met since I have been in child care, who I will never forget! I have so many memories one of them being quite recent. One of the children who attends Papilio Early Learning Centre makes me laugh every single day she comes in, she knows what is funny and enjoys asking me to look at her when she is up to something cheeky!!!  

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? We have a team of passionate educators who are highly dedicated in their role to make sure children feel safe and secure through the day in our care. I can see the way that they love and care for every child that walks in the door of our service and their interactions and relationships with the children proves it to be true.
