Why Childcare?

I have always had a love for kids. Being able to guide and assist them into growing and developing into life long learners is so rewarding and fulfilling. They are all unique in their own ways and I want to help them express and find themselves in all areas of development.

Why Childcare?

From my first day in the childcare industry in 2007 I knew this was the career for me. As my time, knowledge and love grew in the industry so did my understanding that this isn’t just a career, it’s a passion which I am so lucky to call my profession. I love that everyday is so different and interesting being surrounded by happy, kind little sponges craving experience and learning. Everyday is exciting as we watch and guide children to grow into all they can be.

Why Childcare?

Childcare was always an interest of mine and since starting at Wyralla it has become a second home. I love seeing each child grow and develop and being a part of that journey is a privilege! The friendships and bonds made with each family are life long and now that I have my own children they take on a whole new meaning . Childcare was always what I saw myself doing and still love it to this day.

Tiarne Rumsey

Educator – 2-3 Room

  • Certificate 3 in Children’s Services

Why Childcare?

Childcare to me is all about the kids; their happiness, growth, development and laughter. I got in to childcare because growing up I was one of the eldest grandchildren in a large family and loved nothing more then spending time with my younger cousins. The thing that makes me love my job everyday is getting to see their faces, hearing them laugh, making them smile and getting to know them and of course, all the cuddles are an added bonus.
