I believe that early childhood education is vital for a child’s development. Each environment focuses on the individual strengths and the needs of the child.
My focus is to create strong and trusting relationships with all children and their families, engaging in positive interactions and allowing the children to feel a sense of being, becoming and belonging. We strive to make this service feel like a second home to all, while fulfilling the child’s need for nurturing, respect and sense of security.
On behalf of the Sparrow Early Learning Grant Street team, we welcome all enquiries and look forward to sharing the Early Childhood journey with you.
My qualifications & experience:

- Over 7 years of experience in early education & childcare
