Early Childhood Director secures Finalist position for awards

Centre Manager, Jasmin Raddon from The Learning Sanctuary Littlehampton has been selected as a finalist in the Early Childhood Director of the Year category of the 2016 Australian Family Early Education and Care Awards. Each finalist has been assessed against a strict set of criteria and has been given special recognition for all their efforts.

Mrs Raddon discusses how honoured she is to be recognised for the hard work and dedication she has placed into the ongoing education of children throughout the years. “I am extremely proud to be selected as a finalist from over 1,020 nominees,” said Mrs Raddon. “I have been in the early education sector for over 14 years and it is an industry that I am so incredibly passionate about. “I entered the early education sector soon after having my first child, my son Jared was only three months old when he began care which was daunting as a first time mother. 

“This was made a great deal easier by the absolutely wonderful educators who cared for my baby (and me) throughout this time. Their care and compassion for the families in their care inspired me to be that educator for someone else. To be a finalist not only puts a huge smile on my face, but inspires me to continue working hard each and every day. I am so very proud to be the leader of this wonderful service and all this would not have been possible without the help of my amazing staff and I am extremely thankful to them and all the wonderful families at our centre”.
