Our people

Our educators are caring, friendly and qualified. We love to work with little ones and respect that each child is unique. We give them all one-on-one attention and encourage them to be themselves. We also keep in regular contact with you because you know your child better than anyone!

Our educators follow the circle of security principles, which provide us with a solid basis for strong, caring relationships with each child. We’re knowledgeable about early childhood education and stay up to date with current research and practice.

Glenyse Tracey

I believe that early childhood education should be filled with joy and wonder and that as early childhood educators, it is our role to spark the curiosity that leads to lifelong learning by providing inspiring environments. By focusing on play based and child led learning children resource and drive their own learning leading to rich, meaningful experiences.

I also believe that relationships are the key to everything we do as educators. By building strong connections with children, families, the community and with our peers we support the best outcomes for children. When children feel safe and secure, they develop the confidence to test their skills, ask questions and build independence. The belief that children are more capable than we often give them credit for, underpins my philosophy.

I love incorporating my passion for nature, gardening, and sustainability into my role as an educator and I believe connection to nature is vital to both physical and mental wellbeing. I am looking forward to working with all stakeholders to “green up” our centre.

As Centre Manager, I aim to support and inspire our educators. To challenge them to strive for increased knowledge, and to build a culture of continuous improvement through reflective practice in all areas of our work.

As an educator I believe a child’s learning journey begins from the moment they open their eyes. I believe children should have the opportunity to explore and investigate freely the environment around them.

The first five years is a magical time for children to build meaningful connections, imagine wonderful things and begin a life-long learning journey. As an educator I reflect upon the environment and people around me. The children inspire me to develop and grow as an educator, and a helping hand in their learning experience.

As an assistant centre manager my passion lies in ensuring we have an inclusive and welcoming environment, to ensure every child has the opportunity to learn and achieve developmental milestones. As a member of a dedicated team, they drive me to be inspiring as an early childhood educator and as a leader.
