What do you love about being an early childhood educator?

Learning alongside the children, they have so much knowledge to offer too!


Why is BestStart such an awesome place for children to learn at?

Because we get to know you, uniquely you.


What is your favourite thing about the new custom-built BestStart centre at Coast?
Being nestled in the heart of the Coast community with so many opportunities to explore our community.


You’re at Coast every day – what are the centre’s hidden gems?

MorArt is definitely a one-stop shop to buy gifts for those people in your life who already have it all. 


What are you looking forward to most this year?

Settling into our beautiful new centre and getting to know lots of new families and children.


When you are not caring for Coast kids at BestStart, what are you doing? 

Spending time with my family, including a cat, three chickens and fish!
