Talia started working at Choklits as a part-time cleaner in 2015 while she was still at school. She decided to join our Educational Team soon thereafter, began studying and now holds a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care. She has now been with Choklits for over 8 years!
Over to Talia…
I love being a part of playing a key role in helping and guiding young children as they accomplish wonderful transformations in their development and achieve milestones. Getting creative to produce inviting play spaces and experiences is one of my passions. Seeing children get excited from engaging in an experience that sparks their interest all the while supporting their growth at every stage is something remarkable.
Throughout my career I’ve been most proud of building strong retaliations with not only the children, but also with their families as well. Being apart of Choklits for over 8 years has been a wonderful journey to watch children thrive from being in my care in the nursery room to graduating our kindergarten class, always makes me so sad on their last day at Choklits as I wont be able to see their smiling faces everyday or them giving me great big cuddles.
When I’m not at Choklits, I love taking my veryyyyyy active dog Kasey, to the beach, camping or out and about. I love finding new cafes to try and I enjoy traveling and exploring to new rural towns.
My favourite thing being an educator is when a child learns to say your name for the first time, still gets me so excited every time. Times when parents tell stories from home when their child says phases such as “only Talia can put me to bed” or “only Talia can change my nappy” always make me laugh and are very sweet to know children still think about you even when they are at home.
