Our people

We are caring, passionate and qualified educators who create a fun and inspiring place for your child to spread their wings. We are confident and determined to empower your child’s transformation and growth.

What sets us apart from other childcare centres is the fact that we are a bilingual centre, offering services in English and Italian. We believe that children’s learning is most effective when they voluntarily participate in activities they enjoy. To support this, all activities and programs in our centre are undertaken based on the interests and passions of each child.

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? Being able to share these early years of learning and discovery are special and I love being able to help create those big milestones in a child’s life.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? There are too many to count!! The most memorable and special moments are when the parents come up to you and tell you that you have made a difference in their child’s life. Anything from helping them to remember their colours, them talking about how amazing you are at home or even the child blaming me for something they did at home that they shouldn’t have done!! I just love making an impact on these special little lives, however big or small.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Asilo is special because it’s not just a child care – it’s a family. We believe, stemming from the Italian culture, each individual family is special and unique and they are just another piece to our beautiful puzzle. We offer a caring and warm environment with amazing educators who offer an excellent learning program. Also teaching children the basics of the Italian language, from numbers, days of the week, colours, etc. through song and fun repetition.
