Why do you like working in childcare?

After having children of my own, I realised I loved looking after children and watching them grow, it didn’t take me long to turn this love into my career. Caring and educating for the next generation is such a privilege and to have the opportunity to watch kids learn, play and grow each day, is an honour. I strongly believe in providing a childcare centre in Mickleham where families feel safe and secure and can trust their young ones are being educated and well taken care of each day.
