Hi, my name is Jess. I’m an early childhood educator here at Tugulawa and I work in the kindergarten room, and I love it!
I was always really interested in what happened before the school age.
I started my career in Liverpool, there was an opportunity for me to come to Australia. Options were available for me to study here and work at the same time, so it was perfect.
No two days are the same, every day is different.
A lot of different interests flying around the room, so it might be pirates, it might be snakes. It could be anything, and you’ve just got to go with it.
The environment, that’s all based around their interests and really beautiful to see them progress and move on and build that confidence and resilience and make those friendships.
There the really special moments.
I’m studying my early childhood diploma at the moment, whilst working here at Tugulawa.
There's always help from the directors and the educators, and that support network is always there.
It’s the best move I’ve ever made.
You could come in and there's just love straightway, so many hugs and yeah ..
There’s no way you could be sad working here, ever.
It’s like a family, once you’re in there.
If you have a passion for education and young children, then early childhood is the career for you.
