After leaving and working in Germany I came back home and started working in a childcare centre in Melbourne where I rediscovered enjoyment of working with younger children and especially 3 -4 year olds
Over the past 5 years I have been a mentor to follow Educators and student educator and while as developing my own skills as an early childhood educator, this has lead my in to wanting to further develop my skills as an early years educator and go back and study the Bacolor of Teaching Early years.
