Bachelor of Early Childhood Education
I began my career in early childhood education back in 2010. I worked in long day care working with children between 0 to 3 years, focusing on providing a caring and welcoming space for children and their families.
I enjoyed my experience working with younger children, however I was always intrigued with the 3 to 5-year-old age group and how independent and spirited they appeared. This encouraged me to complete my Bachelor of Early Childhood at Deakin University.
From 2013 I spent 5 years teaching at a kindergarten in Doncaster East, working with both 3 and 4-year-old kindergarten children. I believe during this time I was able to find my feet as a teacher whilst incorporating my passion for music and movement.
My philosophy emphasizes play-based learning and the use of open-ended resources and materials to encourage imaginative and spontaneous learning. Being a creative teacher, I was always looking for new and exciting ways to engage the children and make their kinder experience unforgettable!
I have recently moved back to Melbourne after spending almost 2 years working as a casual relief teacher in Brisbane, Queensland. During this time, I was able to see how other kindergartens operate and the different teaching styles and practices. This got me thinking and reflecting about my own philosophy and how I can make adaptations and changes for my own future growth as an educator. This concurs with my belief that early childhood education is constantly changing and progressing and as a teacher it is imperative to be open to accepting new ideas and progressing as the sector evolves.
Not only is the education changing but so are the children as each year goes by. It is wonderful to see how knowledgeable and passionate the children are about their own interests. A teacher can learn a lot from their students and that is just one thing I love about working with children.
I am very excited to be part of the Talbingo family, and to make meaningful connections with our families. I thoroughly enjoy working alongside the teaching team and Committee members as we create memorable moments for all current and future kindergarten children at Talbingo 3-Year-Old Kindergarten Inc.
Diploma of Children's Services
I commenced my career and education in working with children back in 2018 and have attained numerous academic qualifications that have enabled myself to learn and grow. I have also decided to pursue my qualifications furthermore by completing my Bachelors Degree in the near future.
I believe that there is some magic involved when working with children, especially the “Threenagers”. They are extremely confident and have very bright lights inside of them and they surely are not afraid to let them shine. Their love is strong and passionate and they proudly wear their hearts on their sleeves. But most importantly, they are very pure.
It has always been my agenda to encourage learning through play while providing children with opportunities to discover and create. I strongly believe in and celebrate Cultural Diversity as I believe it is vital for the future bright minds to comprehend its importance.
I have always believed that Environment Play is a major success in Early Childhood and everything it represents whilst enhancing a child’s developmental domains. One of the key things as to why I love working with young children is to learn and grow myself by observing them becoming the best versions of themselves.
I am very contented to be part of Talbingo and build sound relationships with children and families and share precious experiences closely. I am most excited to see the beautiful and infectious smiles everyday and spend time learning, discovering and building safe relationships.
