Service Manager

Kara Hammell

My name is Kara and I want to create a place where every single person big or small walks in and feels welcome, that they feel inspired. Inspired to love and inspired to be the best they can be. I want to have an impact on every child, family and educator. You step foot inside this centre and feel the warmth, feel the love all whilst making memories and friendships that last a life time. You know that this is the place you are meant to be.

I want each child to go on and change the world with compassion, kindness, but also through their love of nature and their passion for sustainability. “It takes a village to raise a child” mentality as we work in partnership. Each child to feel a sense of belonging to the whole community. Each and every Educator to strive to be the best they can be, to extend and enrich children’s learning and their own.

Continuing to learn through an always evolving sector, keeping the passion for early education alive. Developing and reflecting on their own practise and beliefs. “Play is the highest form of research” – Albert Einstein.

Play provides opportunities for children to learn as they discover, create, improvise and imagine. I believe learning takes place best in a positive safe environment filled with laughter. "Children’s learning is dynamic, complex and holistic. Physical, social, emotional, personal, spiritual, creative, cognitive and linguistic aspects of learning are all intricately interwoven and interrelated (EYLF Page 9)."
