Meet the Centre Manager – Sarah Robinson
I’ve been working in the early childhood sector for many years and I hold a Diploma of Children’s Services as well as a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
I’m passionate about providing an environment where children feel they can be themselves and create friendships. I strive to make our centre a place where they feel they belong and can grow without limitations, a place where they can create mess and memories, and a place they will remember as they go to school and leave those footprints behind.
We have such a tight-knit team at Sandcastles Harbord. When the connections between my educators, children and families are strong, the children become more confident to learn and feel secure and supported within their environment.
