What makes you passionate about working in childcare? Seeing children grow and develop, seeing their happy faces every day, and hearing them laughing and having fun.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? Throughout my years in childcare I have had so many memorable moments, they all mean so much to me and I will carry them in my heart forever. Hearing children creating their own version of a song that they hear on the radio makes my smile every time.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? I believe that Milestones Darwin City is an excellent choice for families as we have a great team of warm and friendly educators who support our children and their families and take pride in building positive relationships that encourage children to grow and develop. We provide nutritious meals for children, stimulating educational programs, and we have a large outdoor yard that the children love to explore.
