I am a young Early Childhood Educator, currently living In the beautiful Gold Coast hinterland. I have been in the childcare sector for 5 years. I started my Cert III of Early Childhood in year 9, as a school based trainee at Silkwood School. From there, I completed my Certificate and went on to study my Diploma of Early Childhood (which has been finalised for 3 years). I have been a committed and devoted employee for 5 years to a beautiful, organic, sustainable, Steiner Kindergarten called Fingerprints, located in Worongary. I specialise in alternative education. I am greatly influenced by the Steiner Philosophy and Holistic Education. I have an extensive professional development portfolio, that I have accumulated over my experience within the industry. I have been a casual/part time child minder for 5 years and have experience with overnight care and school drop off/pick up. I understand the importance of following a child’s already existing routine and feeling comfortable when leaving your little ones in the hands of others. I have experience in separation anxiety strategies and am very nurturing and fun. I am punctual, reliable, responsible, and I absolutely adore children. I aim to be a positive role model through imitation and guide children on their imaginative journeys. I also have a resume and professional/personal references for you to view upon request. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Ayla.
