Our experienced and qualified team believe in growing the leaders of tomorrow, enriching children with lifelong learning and school-readiness all the way from birth to 6 years. Centre Manager, Caitlin Wood, is excited to start welcoming families when the centre opens on 14 January. “We’ve been busy getting the centre ready for families and children and the whole team is looking forward to officially opening our doors for the first time. “I love that we are a smaller centre in a residential area, it is so nice to have all the natural gardens and trees around and I think it is a great way to educate children about looking after our environment and learning from the land by doing things such as planting vegetable gardens and herbs, watering them and then using these in cooking.” Caitlin has six years’ experience in early learning and has recruited a team that shares her passion for developing young children into the leaders of tomorrow. “I was inspired by the fact that as an educator I can actually make a real difference in not just children’s lives but in their families lives too, and this is the core value I instil in my team. “I love being a Centre Manager because I truly believe that bringing educators to work together and support each other as a happy and healthy team can create a perfect environment for children to grow, and that is exactly what I plan on doing here at Greenwood Hunters Hill.” Greenwood Hunters Hill opens on 14 January, visit the centre’s webpage for full details or to enquire....
