Hi there! I’m Mindy and I’m the Centre Director here at Wattle Road.
As a passionate Early Childhood Educator, I believe children have the right to always feel safe and loved. Children are capable individuals, and if we create an environment that can nurture, care for and educate them then they will become strong confident learners. Wattle Road is a positive, nuturing and stimmulating environment, where each student experiences personalised care. Our team pride themselves on their longstanding and meaningful relationships with each of our lovely students and their families.
I believe that learning through play in the early years is a proven and important focus for setting a lifelong love of learning for each child.
I am at our centre throughout the week, and am the go-to for our parents and talented Educators. I have been at Wattle Road for several years now, and our commitment to our students is unmatched! I look forward to welcoming your family into the Wattle Road family.
Owner + Operations Manager
Hi! My name is Sandra and I am the owner and Operations Manager of Wattle Road Early Education Centre.
My background is as a registered pharmacist, and I have worked in several roles within the medical industry. Following the completion of my Bachelor of Pharmacy degree, I went on to work in a number of settings, including compounding laboratories and also community roles. During my time as a pharmacist, I held both managerial and clinical roles, and it is through these roles that I developed a true affinity to providing care for the youngest members of our community.
Following my transition out of the medical industry and into the world of childcare, I studied a Graduate Diploma in Education (Early Childhood) at Southern Cross University qualifying as a Early Childhood Teacher.
My role at the centre is to oversee and manage all the day to day requirements, working closely with our talented Centre Director, Claire. I develop and implement programs, systems and operational processes to support our team, our children and our families. I am always at the centre, which gives me the opportunity to spend quality time with our children, and be a point of contact for all parents and the team at Wattle Road.
“I believe that children are unique, capable and curious individuals who are actively engaged in lifelong learning. As early childhood educators, we play a critical role in their short and long-term development. It is our role to nurture and help each of their unique personalities flourish so that they can become confident and independent individuals.”
