SUBA

Room Leader & Mental Health First Aider

Languages: Sinhalese & English

Hello, I’m Suba.

I believe that each child is an individual and as an educator, I will value and develop each kids’ strengths, interests, skills, abilities and knowledge to extend their learning. I believe that they learn through play. I am passionate about providing learning opportunities for children to explore, discover, create and imagine…. I believe in cultural diversity. I will celebrate the benefits of diversity with each individual child and enable them to understand and acknowledge differences.

Kids need the assurance of being loved and cared for while they are enjoying an educational environment. Teaching children is my passion. Security and trust are very important components as well, of my relationship with each child.

They should also be given choices, responsibilities, and opportunities to initiate their own learning. In planning my childcare early learning program I strive for a developmentally appropriate, child-centred atmosphere where they have the opportunity to master new challenges through activities and topics that are meaningful to them, thus building their self-esteem as they develop and learn.

I love to work within a supporting team knowing that we can successfully shape the minds of the children today and create something magical.

Working with kids is such a rewarding career.

TARSH

Educator

Hello 🙂 my name is Natasha but people call me Tarsh.

I have been working in the early years field for over seven years now. I have been able to experience sessional kindergarten, primary aged children and long day care services. Through these experiences I have learnt that children are the forefront of generations to come and it is with early education that children do a substantial amount of growing, learning and developing. I strongly believe that play based learning and viewing each child as an individual is key to guiding children through these processes and it’s extremely rewarding as an early years educator to play a part in how children are able to grow.
