Centre Manager - Greenwood Katoomba

“I’m passionate about supporting educator development and providing safe and educational play spaces that allow children to learn and grow.”

I’ve been working in early education since 2008. I hold a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care and I am working towards a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood and Care 0-8 years). 


I’m passionate about supporting educator development and providing safe and educational play spaces that allow children to learn and grow. In early childhood education, I have learnt that all children are unique. Although we are their ‘teachers’, children often teach us new things and challenge us to review practice to suit individual children.  

 

All childcare centres, including our centre, use the foundation of play-based learning to guide our experiences every day. With access to a range of age-appropriate learning resources, trained educators, and new experiences among friends, we set children up to thrive in an environment that is dedicated to learning. Children develop their curiosity, problem-solving, confidence and resilience at our centre, and we carefully plan play-based learning experiences around their interests and learning goals. 


Our team is like a family. We are passionate and motivated. Many of our team members have been here since it opened. The teamwork well together and are always striving to go above and beyond.  


Our team understands just how important your children are to you and we ensure we take our responsibilities seriously. Greenwood Early Education Centres has extensive policy and procedures in place to assist our team in protecting children in our care. You can read more about our commitment to safety here. 

 

At Greenwood Katoomba, we understand that leaving your child each day is the hardest thing a parent can do. Our customer engagement team will support you through the process of enrolling. 

During a tour, you will be shown through each of the rooms, meet the team, and view our outdoor area. The educators in the room will talk you through the daily routine and start to get to know your child. On your way out you can grab a coffee from our coffee machine. After a tour, the customer engagement team and I will be in contact and available for any questions you may have. On their first day, you will receive an update on how they are going via Xplor or a phone call. We encourage families to check in as often as they need.  


We look forward to welcoming you to our centre and showing you everything we have to offer.
