When you entrust the education and care of your child at Wonder Kids, you can be assured our dedicated team of Educators put the well-being, happiness, development and education of your child above all else. All Educators have current First Aid, Asthma and Anaphylaxis Certificates.
Our dedicated team of Educators understand how critical the first five years is to a child's development. At Wonder Kids we believe children develop best when their days are filled with play, learning and fun. The important thing is to achieve the right balance.
We understand a child's developmental growth - physically, socially and emotionally providing them with the ability to learn the types of knowledge, behaviour, thinking and communication skills they require for life.
As we recognise the importance of stimulating a child's brain in the early years is critical, we ensure the experiences of hearing, seeing, touching, smelling, tasting, exploring and questioning. This provides the foundation for learning and other lifelong skills shaping the adults they will become.
Hi, my name is Carissa and I am the Service Manager at Wonder Kids Early Learning Centre. I have been working with children and families in the Early Childhood sector since 2004 and became the new Service Manager in 2018.
Previously I worked at our sister service – Hot Tots Educational Centre since 2006 and held the role of Assistant Service Manager.
I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services and have the joy and responsibility for the day to day running of Wonder Kids Early Learning Centre, in accordance with the National Regulations.
I am passionate about my career and treat each child with the utmost respect. I believe in catering for each individual child and believe that every child deserves the best start in life. I believe that an early childhood environment should reflect a home like environment which is warm and caring.
I have high expectations for the care and play environments that my children attend with the core focus being on relationships, safety, learning through play and the creation of stimulating and empowering spaces for children to play and grow.
I am here to support children, families and Educators in my position as Service Manager and will put in 100% effort to achieve this daily.
I welcome you to Wonder Kids Early Learning Centre!
