Our educators form a diverse, multicultural team. They are bright, enthusiastic people who genuinely love their job and view their role as a partnership with children and families.
All of our lead educators and teachers have early childhood education qualifications. Ongoing staff development and training ensure that the team keeps up-to-date with new learning strategies and are empowered to make informed choices.
“We have an amazing, diverse team here at Bruce who I take great pride in mentoring and helping to go above and beyond. We truly do support each other as we achieve great things for ourselves and our families. I personally love watching the children in our care grow and develop. Some of them come to us at just six weeks of age and don’t leave us until they are six years old, so we establish really strong bonds with the children and mutually rewarding relationships with the families."

What makes you passionate about working in child care? I never get bored when I'm around children, you get so much back from them. My favourite thing about working with them is when they l laugh - you can't help but smile and laugh with them.
What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in child care? It was when I was working with Toddlers age group and I received this little note from one of my family on Educators Day saying that “ I love coming to the room when I see you in the room. I talk about you all the time when I am not at day care and I ask my mummy to take photos of me on weekends so she can send it you. Thank you for looking after me when my mummy can’t. Love : “Child’s name”
