My name is Lisa Davidson and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees at Yokine. I have been working in the Early Childhood Sector for 10 years. I have a Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education, Diploma in Leadership and Management, First Aid, Asthma & Anaphylaxis, CPR, Child protection and I’m Alert food safety training.
I have worked in the industry for 9 years and I started my career in early education in Ireland as a Lead Educator where I gained experience working with all age groups and eventually became the assistant Centre Manager of that Service. I stayed at that centre for 5 years before making the decision to move to Australia. In 2016 I made the move to Australia and started working in an OSHC service and after 3 years I made the change to long day-care which I have done for the over a year.
I love all aspects of early childhood, especially seeing the children learn and grow and gain the confidence to use their voices to help us guide their learning. I love to create environments that are engaging and stimulating for children that foster their curiosity. I love to support Educators in providing quality care for the children in our care. I also really enjoy working with Families to ensure we are providing the care that they need for their children. I am looking forward to building positive relationships with all of the Families, children and Educators so that we can all work together to provide high quality care for our children.
Nurturing responsive relationships are our primary focus for our nursery children.
Your toddler will be encouraged to explore to build resilience, vital social skills and independence in our purpose built environments.
Teaching Practitioners develop a stimulating approach to learning by supporting the children with an educational program that is challenging, insightful, consultative, giving them a head start as they prepare for school.
