"To see adults learn is just as rewarding as what it is to see children learn".
- Carolyn Smart
Journey Early Learning Quality & Compliance Manager
Welcome to Journey Early Learning Burwood. My name is Rachel and I am the newly appointed Centre Manager. I have been an early childhood centre manager for approximately 5 years and have worked in the sector for 13 years. I am a mother to a 3-year old girl who has been apart of the Journey family since she was 8 months old.
My vision is driven by each and every child’s voice, parent participation, contribution and a strong connection to our community’s values.
I am committed to providing a personalised experience for all families and children from the moment they enter our centre, which continues to flow throughout their journey into education.
I look forward to meeting you and showing you through our wonderful centre!
Having the right team is crucial to the success of the relationships and care that you and your child receive.
At Journey Early Learning, our early childhood Educators have a great love and passion for educating children. Our Educators seek to optimise learning opportunities and offer a diverse cultural experience for your child.
Our Educators are passionate, considerate, educated, inspiring and welcoming. They enjoy developing connections with children, families and the community and understand that learning is a lifelong journey.
At Journey you will be greeted by familiar faces, the stability of our team is a high priority allowing you and your child to develop strong and trusting relationships with our Educators.
We believe that early learning Educators require a wide range of skills and life experiences as well as early childhood qualifications. All Educators hold a minimum Certificate III in Children's Services and each room has an Educator who also holds a Diploma in Children's Services or higher.
Our Educators have excellent access to training and development opportunities in the early learning industry and participate in on-going training facilitated by our dedicated Education Leader and Quality & Curriculum Leader as well as undertaking industry recognised first aid qualifications on a regular basis, including Anaphylaxis Management and Asthma Management training.
Staff photos, qualifications and information about the responsible person on duty are located in the entrance to the centre. This assists our families and children in easily identifying members of our team.
