    “Hi, my name is Cassie & I am currently the Centre Director here at our childcare and kindergarten in Berwick. I started my career journey as a student, completing my certificate III placement hours in one of the pre-kindergarten rooms back in 2013. I obviously loved it as I am still here today! I feel as though I still have the same passion & enthusiasm I did as a nervous student to now, working in a management role. I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to learn all different aspects of working in Early Childhood; assistant educator, room leader, OH&S officer etc. The reason why I have chosen this career in Early Childhood is because I enjoy forming great relationships with the children and their families. This creates opportunities to be able to have fun and laugh each day”

    ” I have been working as an early childhood educator for 6 years. When I was younger, my mum was a director for a childcare centre, so I grew up around the industry. When I completed school in 2015, I knew that I wanted to follow my mum’s footsteps after seeing how much passion & love she had for the industry. I completed my certificate III & started my career as an early childhood educator. Working in early childhood is very rewarding. As educators, we don’t only care for our children, but we watch & experience our children go from crawling in the nursery to walking out the doors of our centre once graduating from kinder. I believe working in this industry you need to be passionate, caring & nurturing. The one thing I really love about working as an early childhood educator is watching our little ones grow & develop into beautiful young children.  To be the one to help guide, teach, be there through it all with them & to be part of their early years journey is so special. “
