Hello! My name is Mafi! I have been at SPCCC since 2010. In that time I have completed my Certificate 3 in Children’s Services and now I am completing my Diploma through Rowe Training for my role as Room Leader.
I’m a Group Leader in the Pre-school side. I am also studying my Diploma thorugh Rowe TRainign. I have been working at Stuart Park Childcare Centre for over 3 years.
I’m slowly getting to know how to programme and understanding more how to use the EYLF to organise children’s learning ways. In my experience working in a childcare industry, it is very important to support children in times when they are overwhelmed or feeling distress, fear or discomfort. It may take some time because children are too young to manage their own feelings.
At preschool age, children are learning cognitive skills to prepare them for the next level which is kindergarten. I believe it is an educator’s duty to go above and beyond safety, love and respect. We educators should strive to create an environment that is fulfilling and supporting of all possible learning and growing opportunities. Also positive communication with children, parents and educators.
