What makes you passionate about working in childcare? That Light bulb moment! I am also very passionate about being inclusive with all.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? I was on Prac and I was doing a group time with my Assessor watching. My subject was Hygiene and Health. We were discussing washing hands and having a bath etc. I asked the children what they like to take in the bath with them.  One little boy said I take my crocodile and my Mum and dad take a Bottle of wine and two glasses into the bath. My assessor was in fits of laughter and I politely moved on to the next child.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? I believe one of our best qualities is the homely feel the centre has and our nurturing, caring and professional Educators.
