Our People

Milestones Early Learning Smithfield employs qualified and friendly staff to ensure your child receives the best start in their educational journey. Our caring educators love children and many of them have been with us for up to ten years. Our educators are part of different cultures creating a diverse community in the centre. These cultures are shared with the families and children through everyday activities and learning opportunities as a way to understand and communicate with each other as a community.

We appreciate that the early years are a critical time to spark children’s curiosity, encourage exploration and develop a lifelong love of learning. Milestones Early Learning Smithfield is proud to offer you and your family a close community and a strong sense of belonging.

What makes you passionate about Early Childhood Education? Seeing the smile on the Children’s faces every day and that I get to make a difference for My Team, The Children we care for and their Families. I have always said it is not just a Job, It is a way of life.
What is your most memorable moment at the centre? Sharing our Meeting the National Quality Standards result with the Team in May 2019. The look on everyone’s  faces was priceless and it will always hold a special place in my heart!  It was a testament to all our hard work and dedication.
Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? We pride ourselves on being culturally and linguistically diverse. We have created a home away from home environment which when receiving feedback from our tours is frequently one of the main reasons they choose to enrol their Children. We are proud of our low staff turnover and have many long standing Educators at the Centre, one of which has been at the Centre for 19 Years. Many of the Team have their Children enrolled at the Centre.
Fun fact about you?  I can juggle 2 balls with one hand which is often requested by the Children!
