A quick chat with your Coordinator Hollie
Hi families, I’m Hollie, your Coordinator for Atlantis Preschool.
I have worked in the Early Childhood Education and Care industry for over 6 years, during this time I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience and worked with many wonderful families. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Education which is providing me with an expensive skill set and deepening my knowledge and understanding of the amazing industry in which I work.
It is always a pleasure to walk through the door in the mornings and be greeted by so many beautiful smiles, kind words and warm hugs. I love to explore the world through the children’s eyes and I enjoy creating meaningful and engaging learning activities which enable to the children to learn through play and discovery. I particularly enjoy Sensory experiences and I am an advocate for sustainability.
My favourite part of working in childcare is listening to the stories children tell and getting their perspectives on life, there is not a day that goes by without laughter at Preschool!
I love building strong relationships with the children in my care and with their families, it is so important to have that bond with them so that the children feel safe and while at Preschool. I see these children as my own (work) family and want nothing more than to see them thrive and grow in life.
I look forward to meeting you and hopefully get to be a part of your child’s life.
You are about to make one of the most important decisions that you’ll ever have to make in your life as a parent, that of who you choose to look after your child.
At Atlantis you can be guaranteed that your child is in a caring and safe environment. We look forward to having the opportunity to show you around and for you to meet an outstanding team of individuals who respect each individual child and their needs.
It is our mission to provide a caring and safe learning environment where individual attention maximises and enriches the development and potential of children in their first journey through life.
