Susan new



Nominated Supervisor

Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood

I have worked with children aged 3-5 and their families since 1985 in a variety of Early Childhood settings, predominantly in community managed education and care services. I became a part of the passionate, professional and long serving team at CPCK in January 2011.

I am committed to and privileged by the opportunity to assist children to realise their talents, abilities and potential. Children are my teacher as well as I am theirs and I am inspired and amazed at how children think, learn and develop. Children are the grassroots of society and so they, in effect, form the important foundations necessary for a healthy, positive and caring future society.

There are 3 areas in my role as Teacher/Director that inspire me most:

* the opportunity to intentionally assist children to feel confident, important, accepted and empowered

* the opportunity to forge partnerships with parents to allow for genuine, reciprocal support where the culture and community spirit of the Preschool is created and maintained

* my association with CPCK’s teachers and educators where leadership, respect and honesty are held in high esteem which allows for an innovative, inclusive and creative preschool curriculum

I am proud to be a part of a community managed early education and care service where a deep sense of ownership and a sense of belonging is obvious among families, children, educators and the wider community.

Collaroy Plateau Community Kindergarten recognises the importance of acknowledging the history of First Nations People. We acknowledge and respect the values and customs of the traditional custodians of the land where our preschool is situated.

We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging for they hold the memories, traditions, culture and hope of Indigenous Australians. First Nations people protected songlines for well over 40,000 years, raising and teaching their children and creating the first footprints on Country. We extend our hand in friendship as we now walk together with respect for each other and the common goal of protecting the land and all of her inhabitants.
