Over to Jodi…
There are so many reasons to love working in early learning! Being with children everyday creating inviting play spaces that the children will engage in and learn new skills from is very exciting. But, what I love the most is being able to make a difference in the families lives and supporting parents when they first enter the world of early learning. It’s a big responsibility ensuring families have peace of mind leaving their children with us for the first time and knowing they will be safe and have fun, one both my team and I take very seriously.
Throughout my career as an early childhood educator I am most proud of the relationships I have built with the children and their families, many of which have continued after the families have left Choklits.
When I not at Choklits I am a taxi driver to my 4 sport crazy children (football, netball and calisthenics). Being their number 1 supporter and their biggest fan I love watching them play/perform.
In a world (the nursery) where a lot of the children’s communication is non verbal, I love when the children smile when I walk in the room but what really melts my heart is when they learn to say my name.
