GRACIE RICHINGS, EDUCATOR AND STAFF COORDINATOR
Certificate III and completing Diploma in ECE
I have worked in childcare since the age of 15, it has always been my passion. I believe that each child is unique with their own individual strengths and that through spontaneous and planned activities that are interest-based, the children will develop a strong sense of well-being. I will value and develop each child’s interests and provide all opportunities for the children to explore, imagine and create. Coming from the UK, I use my experience in childcares there and my experience here in Australia to incorporate it into the children’s learning.
Diploma in ECE
I am a diploma qualified and dedicated early childhood educator with a drive and passion for the care and learning of children. Having worked in few other childcare centres, I have developed the skill of building strong rapport with the children and their families. Being a mother of two young kids, I feel more attached to the children and am able to pay particular attention to the safety and individual needs of all children. I was a school teacher for more than 3 years overseas. That experience enriched my knowledge about children, their well-being and their development. I will help children learn and grow in a safe and friendly environment.

I am diploma trained Early Childhood Educator. I am in this field from 2008. I love to brighten the day of each child with happy learning and care.

As a concert pianist, Anna has been performing and teaching from a young age. After having her children, Anna has given a lot of attention to the education of babies through languages, music and art.
