Hello. My name is Olivia and I feel honoured that you are taking the time to read my story. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted children of my own. My first baby doll was named Lucy – nicknamed bung-eyed Lucy by my family, as poor old Lucy was a very loved and worn out little doll. As a four year old girl, my mum would wrap me up in a blanket each morning, and strap me into the car when it was pitch black, turn the heaters on and drive me out to her Early Learning Centre. As I grew up and through the later years of my schooling and tertiary education, I worked at my mother’s Early Learning Centre as well as a number of other Centres.
Fast forward 30 years to January 2017 and it became a new but amazingly similar journey for my youngest son and I. Kingston, my four year old son, being rugged up in a warm car for the drive out to my very own Centre, Confident Kids Croydon Park.
Over so many years of exposure to children’s learning environments, watching the change that has occurred in the child care industry, being raised by two amazing parents and two older brothers that have always been my first teachers and having two beautiful children of my own, I have developed a sound philosophy in regard to children’s development.
I strongly believe that by providing children with fun, creative and caring Educators and Teachers that offer an inclusive, safe, loving and trusting environment full of various structured, unstructured activities and resources that are age appropriate to ignite and inspire a curiosity to learn socially, emotionally, culturally, physically and intellectually will undoubtedly support a child’s holistic development. We embrace the real and authentic developmental opportunities for children to take the next step in their learning journey to school with a strong sense of self-belief and confidence.
Every day I strive to make a better tomorrow for our children and our children’s families. I understand the emotional journey of new parents leaving their babies in a new environment, as well as the hectic lifestyle that comes with having small children. I am thankful to all our families that join our community and make our Centre an extension of their home. Our door is always open and we are only a phone call away with answers to many questions.
I look forward to meeting you and your family.Warmest regards,
