We believe that our Educators are an outstanding team of staff and one of our greatest assets, and as a result we pride ourselves not only the quality of the staff that we choose for our centre, but also the way that we look after them to ensure their work is continually of the highest standard.
We provide them with regular in-house training and assistance in furthering their own qualifications. We strive to create an environment in which our Educators are supported through their own personal and professional development. We work together to form a team who respect, value and share our knowledge and skills to provide an interesting and fun environment through out the day for each and every child.
Our dedicated Educators are carefully chosen and have the appropriate educational background to ensure quality care. They are friendly, patient, enthusiastic, understanding, trustworthy and model positive attitudes and behaviour.
We work as a team sharing responsibilities and have the ability to relate openly to children and adults. Starbright Educators are all trained in early development with a balance of mature, qualified and experienced staff.
Our Educators give lots of personalised support, love and attention to all children; this approach creates a fun environment throughout the day for each and every child.
Our Early Childhood Teacher
Overseeing our curriculum at the centre is our early childhood teacher, who strives to ensure that our environment, educators and learning programme are maximising your children’s learning opportunities. With a degree in early education and teaching they co-ordinate the planning and experiences provided for your children throughout the centre, ensuring quality education and care programmes.
Janelle Ienco is the owner and operator of the centre. Janelle manages the overall functioning of the centre and has a Diploma in Children's Services with 20 years experience working with children and also has 2 children of her own.
We have our very own cook, that daily prepares morning tea, hot lunch and afternoon tea, that are the most fresh, delicious, well balanced and healthy meals to ensure quality and taste. Fresh fruits and vegetables are always on the menu.
We also provide an individual menu to those children who have special diet requirements or suffer from known or suspected allergies, and we completely exclude those more common potential allergies (eg nuts) as a precaution.
First Aid Qualifications
All our Educators have a current First aid certificate. We provide St John’s first aid training in the centre to parents interested.
