Bree

I started my journey of working in Early Childhood in 2017 and joined the team at The Learning Sanctuary Camp Hill in 2023. I currently hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and care.

I chose this career path as I am passionate about guiding children through their first five years and helping them reach their milestones. I love watching the children grow and develop new personalities & interests. I have learned that all children are different in their own way. It is up to us as educators to ensure that our programs reflect this to suit each child and their needs/interests.

There are many benefits for a child to attend an early childhood education centre. Children will build their social skills, as well as understand and regulate their emotions. Our goal is to ensure children are provided enough love and support. We want every child to feel a sense of belonging while in our care.

We have a team of dedicated educators here at our Camp Hill Centre who are passionate about their roles. This can be seen in their secure relationships with the children and the families. I always greet every family and child that comes through our centre. I take the time of the morning and afternoon to see how their weekend or day was. I take on all concerns and ensure they feel heard and understood.

The Learning Sanctuary uses Xplor Home as our family communication app. It is the best and easiest way to keep track of your child’s day.

After you enrol your child with the centre, you can utilise Xplor Home to book child care days, manage your account, receive the photographs that capture your child’s learning, learn about your child’s progress, as well as keep up-to-date with upcoming centre events and important information.

If your child shows signs of an infectious illness when they arrive at the centre or becomes sick during the day, you may be notified that you need to make alternative arrangements or pick up your child from the centre, and keep them home until they are no longer infectious. While we understand that this can be inconvenient, The Learning Sanctuary is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.

Under the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), families are allowed 42 absence days per child, per financial year. These can be taken for any reason, including public holidays and when children are sick, without the need for families to provide documentation.
