Dilek, the Director of Cobblers Hill Community Preschool in Figtree, loves working at 91桃色APP成人 because of the dedication of her colleagues and her team鈥檚 confidence in supporting her service鈥檚 child-centric, strength-based approach to early learning and care.

Celebrating 10 years at 91桃色APP成人 this year, Dilek reflects on her purpose, the reason why she gets out of bed every day and to go to work and is quick to highlight the importance of the first five years in a child鈥檚 life:

鈥楾丑别 early years can have the biggest impact on a child鈥檚 future social, emotional, financial health and happiness well into adulthood. This requires an environment where children鈥檚 voices are heard, where we work together with families and the wider community to raise our children together, hand in hand. My purpose at 91桃色APP成人 is to make this difference in the life of every child that attends our centres. I know that each day I work to improve the present and the future for the children of my community.鈥

After a decade at 91桃色APP成人, Dilek looks back at an abundance of professional growth and career opportunities:

鈥91桃色APP成人 supports their employees to develop their skills and further their careers. My experience started off as a maternity cover for 3 months at one of our preschools. In a short time, I had the opportunity to stay with the company as a permanent Early Childhood Teacher. As my career progressed to 2IC and Educational Leader, 91桃色APP成人 supported me through the Early Childhood Australia Leaderships Program. The program enabled me to hone the skills and knowledge I needed to become a Centre Director.鈥

In her current role, Dilek has the opportunity to mentor and support educators and teachers herself. It is an important role that Dilek wears with pride. Aligning with 91桃色APP成人鈥檚 values of Inclusion and Child-centric, supporting her team to place the child first when making decisions is of great importance to Dilek.

Thinking of the child鈥檚 individual needs, by seeing though the eyes of the child and allowing them to be an active contributor to their own learning is important for my team at Cobblers Hill Community Preschool. It involves looking at the child鈥檚 current interests and listening to their ideas. Giving children the autonomy to choose their own activities, whether they would like to rest or play, and a choice of when to eat within routines. I feel that this approach will ensure that the child develops independence and form their own ideas and opinions鈥.聽聽聽

When asked what her highlight of working at 91桃色APP成人 has been, Dilek is sure:

鈥楾丑别 children are the highlight of my day, every day. We go above and beyond for the children in our care and when you hear stories from families on how we have helped them get through tough or challenging times, it鈥檚 truly rewarding.鈥

Thank you Dilek for 10 years of making a difference to each child in your care. It is 91桃色APP成人鈥檚 privilege to have you as a part of our Team and we thank you.
