Please allow me to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Kylie Clark and it is a pleasure to have joined Paradise Road Early Learning. I consider myself fortunate to have been given this opportunity to join an amazing centre. This Director position offers new and exciting challenges for me, all of which I am looking forward to. Prior to coming to Paradise road, my background entailed working at another Centre for 12 years. Now, I look forward to this new position and I’m quite excited to get started with these new challenges and make some positive and professional changes. I can see already that this is a fine group of people I will be working with. I’m looking forward to having an opportunity of chatting with each of you. Glad to be on board!
I have worked in early childhood for the past 8 years, and in that time my passion has grown from strength to strength, forming close relationships with the children, families and my colleagues. I have my certificate III and Diploma, and have now taken the next step, by continuing my studies and enrolled in my Bachelor of Early Childhood through UNE.
I started working at Paradise Early Learning Centre in September 2019, as I have a passion for watching and supporting the children to grow, develop and prepare for school in a safe and secure environment. I have a passion for physical educations and sport and would love to bring this passion into the centre. I have raised and taught all 3 of my children through home education until this year and am looking forward to the challenges and achievements to come.
I started at Paradise Road Early Learning Centre as a student in March 2019, feeling so at home and welcomed I didn’t want to leave and I haven’t, now I am a Lead Educator studying my Diploma. I adore watching the children learn, grow and discover through play based learning. One of my favourite parts of this is watching their little faces light up when they discover something new or achieve something on their own for the very first time, it is an absolute privilege being part of that. i want to demonstrate to the children that not everyone is the same or has the same needs and to teach them respect and empathy for all people. As a person who loves to play I would like to show the children that learning is fun and everyone has their own unique way of doing it.
My name is Jazmin, I have been working with children for the past year. I have a Bachelor of Visual Arts and I enjoy every aspect of teaching and realise that children can teach us as much as we teach them.. I love watching the children learn and grown at their own pace and in their own time. I have previous experience teaching children with additional needs, and I am taking steps to improve my knowledge and understanding in this area, to be able to further support the children. I will bring my laughs, smiles and passion for art as well as my enthusiasm for reading and all things ‘books’. thank you for giving me the opportunity to support you and your children in their journey.
Miss Karen has been at the service for over ten years, providing the opportunity for her to support entire families through their early years and then on to school. Karen has completed her Diploma in Early Childhood Education in 2019. Miss Karen loves to shop and is always looking for new materials for the children to use in craft activities or for up cycling. With grown children of her own she now passes on her experience to the younger members of the team.
I started working at Paradise Road Early Learning after completing a 3 week practical as a student from the Queensland University of Technology in 2020. My passion and love for young children stems from my family, having being among the eldest of a large family. Every way I turned I was surrounded by children and eventually I grew to love it…sometimes! Growing up I was always told to pursue a career that wouldn’t feel like a job, and to me interacting, caring and educating young minds sounds like the perfect role. I genuinely love coming into work each day, watching as they laugh, smile and learn. Children are my passion and I’m very grateful to be apart of this awesome community!
I have worked in Early Childhood Education for 2 years. I work in Early Childhood Education because of the fun and engaging atmosphere. Seeing the children’s enthusiasm and being able to support the children to succeed, gives me a great sense of fulfillment. While working with children I want to provide a caring environment, filled with creative and skill building activities that develop the children’s learning. To the service I bring my passion for creative experiences. I love using different colours and textures when making artwork with the children.
I have been with the team at Paradise Road Early Learning Centre for over a year now. I am wanting to be a positive role model for the children’s and being in the role of educator I am able to achieve this goal. I absolutely love my job and coming to work everyday wanting to see what the children will achieve next in their learning and discovery. I want to achieve a more in depth understanding of the children and their development, while gaining more skills to help them grow and learn to their full potential.
I am one of our educators at Paradise Road Early Learning as well as our centre administrator. Although you will often find me in the office ready to help with any of your account needs and enrolments – I absolutely love all the fun and exciting challenges that come with being an educator as well, and I enjoy helping your children to grow and learn in an interactive and caring environment each day. Having the past professional experience of working within the disability support field means I am able to understand and appreciate the different learning styles that each child adapts to and uses to grow. I strongly pride myself through being able to provide emotional support and understanding wherever necessary and am always happy to step out of the office and in to the classrooms to help out and make sure each transition for our children and staff is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
I have a background in hospitality, nutrition and was a centre chef in Sydney prior to accepting my position at Paradise Road. I enjoy creating nutritional meals for all children.
