  • Summer, Early Childhood Teacher

    Summer

    I completed my Bachelor of Education at the University of Tasmania in 2008 and have been fortunate to have had experience teaching across a range of grades across Australia and overseas.

    I have a close affinity with the Early Years, and believe all children deserve the best foundations in life – with guidance from a community of educators and carers who are invested in holistic development and advocate for children’s rights. 

  • Jade, Team Leader Marines

    Jade

    I have been working at Glen Dhu Children’s Service for over 12 years as a Diploma Room Leader.

    In that time, I have had 3 beautiful children of my own. From a young age, I just adored babies and children and grew up as the babysitter of the street. I knew early on that early childhood was the path for me. I feel so privileged that I can care for people’s precious children and that I can nurture them and teach them skills for life. What a rewarding job we have, to guide and watch children grow. I feel so blessed.

  • Louise, Team Leader Marines

    Louise

    I am a Diploma qualified Team Leader and Glen Dhu Children's Service. I am inspired by the intrinsic imagination of children, the awe and wonderment we see form through their play with one another is completely pure, and uniquely creative. I believe this stems from my own childhood memories of play where I was immersed in a world of creativity and endless possibilities.

    My mother’s endless time for her children, and her power to inspire out thoughts to make a simple stick represent an animal or person in our imaginary games was so captivating. I remember the stories she would make up for us each night, and they touched my soul to the point that, as an adult, I needed to share my imagination and nurture children to explore their own imagination. I am so grateful for getting to share these special moments with your children. 

  • Melanie, Early Childhood Teacher

    Melanie

    (Currently on Maternity Leave)

    I have been working in the early childhood sector since 2008, and have had the opportunity to work in various states and territories across Australia. I have my Bachelor of Education (Birth-5 years) and my Masters of Inclusive Education, both obtained through Charles Sturt University.

    I believe play is the most effective form of education for young children. As children play, they construct knowledge and meaning of their world as they discover who they are. Children should have unrestricted access to opportunities which allow them to explore, investigate and discover their world.

    I am currently completing my certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care. I began working at Glen Dhu Children’s Services after having my own children, and learning about the importance of early childhood education through watching my own children grow, learn and build meaningful relationships with their own educators.

    I am passionate about making a difference in children’s lives and knowing that I’ve given them quality care and made a positive impact on them during their first years. I love seeing the children grow from the Cubs room right through to the Explorers room.

    I moved to Tasmania from Sydney last year, and I have my Diploma in Children’s Service. I am currently continuing my Diploma in Leadership in Management. I have recently started working at Glen Dhu Children’s Service, and am really enjoying my time here.

    Caring for children is a big part of my life and very important to me. I recently had a beautiful daughter of my own, who I love and adore, and she is a big reason for my strong passion in childcare. For the last 5 years I have been working in the early childhood sector, caring for children of all ages (birth-5 years).
