MEET OUR SERVICE MANAGER
My name is Tammy and I am the Service Manager at Sparrow Early Learning Pacific Pines. I have been working within the Early Childhood Industry for 12 years and hold my Advance Diploma of Children’s Services. During this time, I have worked with all age groups and have worked as an Assistant Educator, Lead Educator, Assistant Director and Service Manager.
I find the Early Years a very rewarding and a passion I have had from a very young age. Having the ability to educate children from 6 weeks of age up until they are 6 years, is amazing and very rewarding. To see how far a child can come in a short time and the skills and knowledge they build is indescribable.
Children learn best through providing them with a safe and secure environment and ensuring not only their needs are meet but also their family’s needs. This why we work in partnership with families to ensure we are striving to make our Service their child’s home away from home. We value and encourage family input and want to know what is happening on the weekends so we can include their interests into our weekly curriculum.
Each child is an individual and this is how we teach the children in our care. Not one child is the same and you must incorporate a variety of different teaching methods to ensure you are meeting each child’s individual milestones and needs. This is what we do at Sparrow Early Learning Pacific Pines.
My role as Service Manager is to be a role model, encourage and mentor the Educators within this Service to ensure we are providing high quality care. As a team we are ensuring each child is settled, safe and feels secure within their environment.
