Staff

When Mary started her first centre it was started with only one goal, to operate a centre which feels like home. A centre which is different to all the other corporate run and externally managed services where love and passion has been taken out from running a childcare and replaced with ” How many children can we fit to keep our shareholders happy”.

Amy

My name is Amy. I am originally from Ireland and I have been living in Sydney for almost a year. I am one of the supervisors in Mary’s Kindy, CBD. I have been part of the Mary’s Kindy team for 9 months now. Over the past few months it has been very enjoyable getting to know all of the children, families and staff who are part of the centre. I feel very settled within the service and have built up many positive relationships in a short amount of time. I hold various qualifications including training in Graphic Design, Special and Additional Needs and I have completed a recognised Diploma in Childcare. Overall I have 13 years’ experience working with
children of all ages including settings such as day cares, preschools, afterschool and an art studio. I am very creative and like to paint in my spare time and enjoy teaching the children about art and craft and developing their creativity. As part of my role I oversee the centres curriculum whilst also planning and implementing the Mary’s Kindy School Readiness Curriculum for the 3-5 year olds attending the day care. I look forward to helping and supporting the children’s growth and development for the years ahead.

Renu

My name is Renu. I am originally from India and I have been living in Sydney for almost 2 wonderful years moving over with my family. I am a childcare worker in Mary’s Kindy, CBD. I have been part of the Mary’s Kindy team for nearly 2 years now and I am currently completing a Diploma in Childcare. As I am from India I like to bring part of my culture and teach the children about another part of the world. In the past we celebrated an Indian festival known as ‘Diwali’ in the center where I planned and implemented various learning activities for the children. These activities included songs, art and craft, dress up and food related to the festival. I thoroughly enjoy teaching the children about different cultures especially as we live in such a multi-cultural and diverse city. As part of my role I plan and implement the Mary’s Kindy curriculum for the 0-2 year olds attending the day care. I truly enjoy working with this age group as they develop, learn and grow so quickly and it is a pleasure to help and support them daily in the center.

My name is Joyce. I am originally from South Korea and I have been living in Sydney for many years with my wonderful family. I am a childcare worker in Mary’s Kindy, CBD. I have been part of the Mary’s Kindy team for 2 years now and I have recently completed a Diploma in Childcare. I enjoy singing and dancing and really like bringing new songs for the children to learn in the center. As I am from Korea I have taught the children how to sing some familiar and well-known songs in my language, like ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’. It is a great and fun way to teach them about other languages and cultures especially as many of the children attending the service come from bilingual backgrounds. As part of my role I assist other educators in planning and implementing the Mary’s Kindy curriculum for the 0-2 year olds attending the day care. It is a delight to work with this age group as I help and support them through their development and growth. I look forward to progressing in the childcare sector and being part of Mary’s Kindy for the years to come.
