Learn & Laugh at Drummoyne has been running since early 2010 and is a beautifully quaint centre at 33a College Street. It is a small centre which caters to 38 children a day, with two rooms and a beautiful cottage feel. The centre is situated down a short driveway at the back of a church, which really provides a small sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the inner west.
I have been part of the Learn & Laugh family since 2012, beginning my career at Learn & Laugh Hornsby. There I worked as the room leader in their 3-5 year old room, while progressing in my career, gaining responsibilities of Educational Leader and Second in Charge. Moving to Drummoyne at the beginning of 2016 allowed me to take on the new challenge of becoming a Director. This was a great opportunity for me to consolidate my learning and experience even more.
Being inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to learning has helped me to view children as strong and capable learners with enormous potential and curiosity. I aim to offer children an environment where they are inspired to learn and explore, while feeling safe and secure.
In my role, I strive to work in collaboration with children, engaging in a hands-on and co-constructionist relationships. This enables me to work alongside children, helping them to extend their own interests through exploration, discovery and project-based learning
