Centres (Milton Early Learning and Care)
SAFETY. LEADERSHIP. INTEGRITY. INCLUSION. CHILD-CENTRIC. COLLABORATION.
I knew from a young age that I wanted to be involved in nurturing and enriching children’s lives. I would jump at opportunities to baby sit, loved exploring early childhood through high school and was over the moon when I was hired for a traineeship after completing my HSC.
Now with 9 years as a service director to learn on, and am thrilled to contribute my skills to Milton Early Learning and Care; Big Fat Smile’s first service in the Shoalhaven region.
Both myself and my team deeply value providing nurturing and fun environments every day that promote learning and life skills in young children.
Our team can’t wait to get to know you and your family and help you all on your journey through early childhood education.
We look forward to building relationships and partnering with families to bring a safe secure environment for children to thrive!
