MEET OUR SERVICE MANAGER
My name is Kerri and I am the Service Manager of Toral Lodge Child Care Centre in Buderim on the Sunshine Coast . I hold my Advanced Diploma in Children's Services and I have been in the Early Childhood industry for over 15 years. I also have a background in child protection and youth justice service.
I believe children are competent, capable learners and we as Early Childhood professionals are here to help, support, encourage and guide children through their exciting learning journey. I believe in providing individual holistic learning experiences where children feel safe to ask questions, make mistakes and become inquisitive in their environments.
We welcome and encourage family involvement at Toral Lodge and strive for positive partnerships within an early learning and care environment.
