Centre Manager Greenwood Officer
"Being an early childhood educator is one of the most rewarding jobs."
I have been working in the Early Education sector since 2018 and hold a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care. I value strong partnerships with families to support their children, while they develop skills that will help them strive in their future endeavours and create strong foundations for their life ahead.
I strongly believe that being an early childhood educator is one of the most rewarding jobs. As an educator, you play a huge role in developing children’s beautiful minds and shaping them to be amazing people when they grow up. You are there for every child in your care, experiencing and celebrating all the big milestones that you help them reach.
Children are central to everything we do. We are creating the next generation of global leaders for the future of this planet. Here at Greenwood Officer, we know that every child is unique and should be treated so, and we facilitate environments that encourage children not only to have fun but to learn and grow – physically, intellectually and emotionally.
Our carefully constructed environments support all developmental domains, giving children choices, responsibilities, and opportunities to initiate their own learning, and allowing them to become the best versions of themselves.
We have an amazing and diverse range of educators – highly experienced as well as trainees starting in the sector – celebrating their different cultures, upbringings, mother languages, ages, and experiences within their roles. Our team understands just how important your children are to you and we ensure we take our responsibilities seriously. Greenwood Early Education Centres have extensive policy and procedures in place to assist our team in protecting children in our care, and at our centre we follow best practices when it comes to educator to child ratios.
Our families are the essence of our community. We are always ready to listen, to offer support, to find services to assist them, and just to sit and chat. We enjoy spending time with our families whether they are new to the centre or have been here since we first opened in 2019. We do this in a variety of ways, including assisting them with completing their enrolment forms, providing advice around Child Care Subsidy (CCS), linking them to community services, or helping them access the support they need. We also offer our parents snacks, coffee and fresh fruits during morning drop-offs and afternoon pick-ups.
I look forward to meeting you and establishing a close relationship with your family and our community.
