Hi, my name is Carla and I am the centre Director at Pearl Street Child Care Centre.
I have worked in the early learning industry for over thirty years. For the past fifteen years, I have managed child care services in the private sector and the community sector as well as large companies like G8 Education. I hold a Diploma in Children's Services and a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
I have always been passionate about my career in providing high-quality care and believe I am a mentor to future educators and will strive to be a great leader for my team.
I seek to form close relationships with families and children under my care. I see each child as a unique individual with a great capacity to learn and able to make positive contributions to those around him or her. As Centre Director, I strive to provide an environment where children and families from different cultural backgrounds feel welcomed and accepted.
My goal is to provide children with a rich environment where they feel safe to explore and initiate learning on their journey and feel free to express themselves.
We have a great group of educators at the centre who have passion and strive in their work with their children. As Centre Director, it is my role to support and encourage our team and work collaboratively with parents.
Chirpy is our resident bird and has been with us for almost six years now.
Chirpy enjoys people coming in to say hello and goodbye and can be heard chirping throughout the day.
The children adore Chirpy and Chirpy feels the same way.
Chirpy is part of the Pearl Street family.
