Emma has been in the Early Childhood Sector for over 19 years and has worked across a wide variety of roles during this time.
Emma started her career as a Trainee in 2003 while completing her Certificate III in Early Childhood Education. She then completed a Diploma of Children’s Services in 2005 while working her way up to become Assistant Manager, Educational Leader and ultimately Centre Manager for a privately owned service in NSW. Emma worked within this NSW service for over 11 years before moving to Perth in 2015 with her husband.
Since 2015, Emma worked with an Early Childhood Service in Perth for over 8 years as an Educator, Team Leader, Educational Leader, Assistant Coordinator and Centre Coordinator, while also completing her Bachelor of Early Childhood Education and Care (Birth-5 years) in 2020.
Emma is passionate about the importance of play-based learning for building the foundations of lifelong skills. She value hands-on exploration and the benefits outdoor play provides in assisting children to discover and develop their own learning opportunities.
Emma adores working collaboratively with the team, children, and families to develop relationships to ensure all children and families gain a secure sense of belonging within the service. She enjoys building environments that promote open ended learning and working alongside children and educators within their learning journey, developing knowledge and awareness together through child-led play.
"I strive to continually support and mentor fellow Educators to ensure high quality of care and education is provided to all children and families and assist in developing a sense of wellbeing within the service to build our community. I look forward to continuing my learning journey, developing my knowledge within the Early Childhood Sector, and getting to know all the children, families and Educators at Tall Tree Leederville and making it a beautiful home-away-from-home!"
