Certified Supervisor – Babies Room (Wed-Fri)
Hello my name is Alison. I joined the team at BELC in 2013 after returning to study to become a children’s educator: I am currently undertaking studies for my diploma. I have always loved working with and caring for young children and I originally trained as a nurse specialising in the care of children I have worked in Sydney’s Westmead Children’s Hospital in intensive care and children’s wards, working closely with many families. I have also worked in a London metropolitan hospital for over 5 years and have visited over 30 countries around the world. I have now lived on the Gold Coast for over 7 years and have 2 young children who attended this centre from toddlers to graduating kindergarten and now come to the centre for before and after school care and vacation care. I love the diversity in our cultures, and I believe this is a part of who we are and needs to be celebrated. I love teaching and watching children learn and grow and I believe that children learn through play and through the opportunities to explore with hands on learning. Nothing brightens my day more than a smile on a child’s face and I am excited to work with the babies and their families in 2016.
