Educator Vicki Byrne

Vicki Byrne

Director – Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education) – Diploma of Community Services (Children’s Services).

I believe that I am a co-learner with my children, their families and my community.

I believe that families compliment teachers’ skills and abilities as they contribute valuable and unique perspectives to the curriculum.

I understand that play is the primary mode for learning in early childhood; play is the framework for my curriculum because I know that children learn best through play and through active participation with novel activities and experiences.

My values and beliefs support my philosophy and propel me to plan learning environments that consider all of the children’s achievements, needs and interests and the vast range of learning experiences that will help them to make progress.

Diploma of Children’s Services (Early Childhood Education and Care)

A home like environment is what I strive to provide because I know that children love to feel safe and secure in their surroundings.

Most important for me, is listening to the children’s ideas and suggestions and incorporating these into the program so that it becomes an accurate reflection of current needs and interests.

I find the children are always filled with questionings, wonderings and ideas for play and I love the fact that I can make such a positive difference to their education in my role.

Diploma of Children’s Services (Early Childhood Education and Care) – Educational Leader – Room Leader

My name is Jenny and I enjoy collaborating with our team to create a busy, welcoming and happy environment for all of our families.

I believe I have a wonderful responsibility to help build foundations for children’s learning, ensuring lifelong positive outcomes for all.

Encouraging all children to feel they are important and respected as they build a positive self-image, plays an important role in all my interactions with children.

Certificate III in Children’s Services – Diploma of Early Childhood Education & Care

I believe that every child is unique and should be respected and loved for who they are.

I am passionate about making all children and their families feel welcomed, appreciated, embraced, comfortable and safe.

My aim is to scaffold children’s learning through play and through meaningful learning experiences, by creating stimulating environments, documenting progress and following children’s interests.

I also aim to always provide encouragement, love, understanding, support and a positive environment for the children.
