Hi everyone, I am Ange😊
I am delighted to announce to you all that I have been appointed as the new centre director for Leap Start Jandakot in 2022!
I am so excited to continue to meet you all 😊
Parents, grandparents, family members and each of you that is part of our Leap Start family.
A little bit about me…
I have such a strong passion for this profession, I love working with like-minded people that believe enhancing children’s learning and life skills is their purpose in life.
As part of the AnR approach at Leap Start, myself, and the amazing team will further imbed Neuroscientist Dr Nathan Hageman’s accelerated neuro response, along with our STEAM program to stimulate children’s development, exploring social emotional skills, cognitive skills and language skills.
Our curriculum focuses on a variety of these areas that are fundamental for a child’s learning. Studies have shown that exploring and experiencing “STEAM” science technology arts engineering and mathematics, can enhance a child’s brain network as well as improve children’s self-help, self-esteem, coordination and focus.
Making special connections and building lifelong memories with the little people of our world is an absolute dream of mine.
I have worked in the childcare sector for 20 years; I knew very early on in my career that this was my calling.
I believe that children have a unique ability to teach us, rather than us teach them.
I resonate with the core of the Reggio Emilia philosophy,
“Emphasising on building sustainable relationships, allowing children to be innovative and inspired, believing that a child is strong capable and resilient”
Allowing children to be free in their environment and learn respect and responsibility.
Over the last two decades, I have grown both personally and professionally and have been able to further develop my knowledge and become creative within the environments as well as educating children of all ages between 0-12 years.
I am extremely blessed to have been able to collaborate with children, educators and families over the years as well as building secure, meaningful, reciprocal relationships that I will cherish for a lifetime.
I am committed to ensuring your children are given the best possible start to their early years and kept safe and healthy and happy whilst building skills that will set them up for success.
Please come and say hello to me in my office or around the centre.
I would love to chat to you all and share some ideas and get to know you all😊
I am looking forward to the year and what we can achieve with the wonderful community we have.
