Hey everyone, I am Steph and I have been in the childcare industry for over 13 years. Originally from Scotland I have now been in Australia for 10 years and wow what a journey it has been……
Originally looking to get my first born in to Leap start the universe had its way and I started working for the company 6 years ago, being one of the original staff there when it originally opened.
Leap Start has a special place in my heart, the values that we have, and follow are exactly what I wanted for my 3 boys. With the 8 specialist programmes that we have created, it has been the perfect place for them to start their journey in life.
Watching children using their own initiative in outdoor and indoor environments is very rewarding, whilst we are there to guide and educate, watching them interact with their peers and build relationship with us as educators,is giving them they confidence they need in life and for us to be a part of that is a great feeling. Observing them in full play mode is one of the greatest things we see in our job, and we get to see it each and every day.
With children’s well being and development our highest priority at Leap Start, clinical research shows that music, art, and language have positive effects on a child’s development. Hand on heart as a mother and educator, i can say I see this happening not only at work but also at home with my children.
We are a truly unique centre, and I am so proud to be a part of the Leap Start Journey, knowing I am getting the very best for my family and all our amazing families at the Centre.
