Hi, my name is Liz Cerqueira and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees at Yokine. I have worked in the Early Childhood Education and Care sector for over 10 years. I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services and currently working towards a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Studies).
I started my career as a Lead Educator and during this time I have had the privilege of working with children of all ages. The best part of working with young children is the joy and wonder they experience in their daily discoveries and the pride they show in their achievements. Children are our future leaders and I believe strongly in encouraging a growth mindset, equipping children to become successful life-long learners.
I believe in providing children with a safe, warm and nurturing environment where children can grow, learn and confidently develop at their own pace. In providing learning opportunities that stimulate and enrich children’s knowledge and understandings while fostering supportive and trusting relationships with educators.
As a Service Manager, I strive to build strong relationships with children, families and staff members at Busy Bees at Yokine, while creating strong connections with the wider community. In my spare time, I love traveling, going to the movies and spending time with family and friends.
I’m looking forward to meeting you and your family!
