Meet Our Team

Our team makes us the Preschool of choice in the Nambucca Valley.

Particularly their special, trusting relationships with  children, which creates a secure and stable environment where your child will thrive.

Without exception, all children settle in beautifully. Simply because we focus on getting to know them, truly understanding their needs, and using our experience in child development to create play-based strategies that bring out the best in every child. We develop and maintain respectful and equitable relationships with each child and support them in building sensitive and responsive relationships with other children and adults.

We believe that building strong attachments are key to children settling and feeling safe.

Friendly

Our educators develop strong collaborative partnerships with families, supporting our belief that parents are the first teachers of their child.                                                                    

We openly welcome families from all backgrounds and cultures. 

Experienced

We support your children with more than 120 years’ combined experience in early childhood education.

 

Our educators have:

  • Batchelor of Education

  • Diploma in Children’s Services

  • Certificate III in Children’s Service

Stable

The stability of our staff sets us apart. Many have been with us for over 10 years.

 

A stable team allows your children to settle easily, be confident and secure in a familiar environment, and receive consistent, quality education and care. And our newest team members bring fresh ideas, knowledge and experience.

Sue Rothe

Sue is the Nominated Supervisor and Director of our preschool.  She has a Diploma in Children’s Services. With many years experience in early childhood education, Sue has enjoyed working with our team for ten years.  When our previous Director resigned, Sue was the logical decision to step up and fulfil this role. What Sue loves most about our centre is the family atmosphere, the staff working as a team and the respectful collaborative relationships with parents/carers that enable recognition of each child's individuality.
