Our People

Known throughout the local area for our warm and friendly team, our educators believe in kindness and inclusiveness. We love working with children and aim to create an atmosphere that is welcoming and encourages every child to be comfortable with being themselves. We encourage them to take the next step, knowing that we’re always right there beside them.

Our outlook is one of respect for children, their families and their cultural backgrounds. They are important parts of each child’s life and our educators actively promote an understanding of this. Our educators all come from different backgrounds and cultures which can be implemented in the centre, currently our educators speak the following languages:

  • Mandarin
  • Arabic
  • Tongan

Meet Our Centre Manager

Renee Halford

Years in childcare: 10 Years
 
Qualifications: Diploma in Children’s Services
 
What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I love being a part of a child’s first years of learning. Watching them make friends, discovering new and interesting ways of play as well as watching them make a bond with their teachers. Being the Centre Manager I enjoy interacting and getting to know each family that walk through the doors. Being able to help the parents leave their children for the day and walking away knowing their children are In perfect hands fills me with the great joy.
 
What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcareThere have been many memorable moments but the one that stands out the most would have to be the first Graduation that I was a part of. Watching the children grow from babies and then seeing them graduate filled me with so much joy and happiness to know that I had a part of shaping their young lives and watching them move on to the next chapter of their learning
 
Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? I believe our centre is an excellent choice for any family because here at Milestones we go above and beyond to make sure that each child in our care is given every opportunity to grow and learn whilst they are here. At Milestones we understand how difficult it must be to drop your children off to complete strangers and leave for the day and that is why we make sure that every parent/grandparent/sibling/carer feels at ease when they leave knowing that we will be there to care for their child as if they were our own.
