Over to Taylor…
I love working with in early education and care because as I have grown up working around children in both sports and education environments. Working within early education and care allows me to put my passion for sport together with my passion for working with younger children. I love watching the children grow, develop and learn through the younger part of their lives in all areas, whether that be life skills or education. I love the different reactions of the children once they accomplished a task that they have been completing for either a short or long period of time. I enjoy watching the children and helping them to develop their confidence within their environment and with the others that are around them.
My proudest moment I’ve felt throughout my career would have to be watching children become more confident within the room and the environment that they are within over a period of time. This went from the child staying close to the educators within the room, to them finding their own place within the room and being able to have the confidence to be able to move around the room or go outside with other educators that weren’t within their room.
When I’m not at Choklits, I love to travel both around Melbourne and overseas, spend time with my family and friends, take long walks, play and watch netball.
The cutest thing a child has ever said to me would have to be when I would walk into the kindergarten room throughout the week and the children would ask me if it’s Friday, as Friday was the day that we completed our sports session. I would then reply back with “what day do you think it is?” and the would respond with “no, it’s not Friday yet?” Then we had a count the days to when it was Friday for them each week. They loved the sports sessions and would always let me know what games they were looking forward to playing.
