Meet Suzie our 2IC from Active Kids Homebush
I have been working at AKG for 6 years, starting in 2011. I love working at our Homebush service because it is made up of a number of hardworking staff who come together with a mutual love of children. We have a number of children from a variety of different cultures, so not only do they learn from us as educators, we also learn from them!
I currently hold my Diploma in children’s services but hope to complete my degree in Early Childhood teaching.
Whenever I’m not in the centre I am busy on the dancefloor where I regularly perform and teach swing, and rock and roll dancing. This is another exciting area of my life where I release my leftover energy. I am also a qualified hairdresser, beginning my apprenticeship way back in 2003.
I strive for excellence which is another reason why AKG is the place for me. I make it a mission to learn as much as I can and try to do my best in all situations. I was voted Student of the year when completing my hairdressing apprenticeship, Educational leader at AKG a few years back, and this year won the Victorian State titles in Rock and roll dancing.
I love working in early education as it involves the MOST important years of development. It essentially sets each child up for life providing them with the tools necessary to excel in their future development. Their days should be memorable! It is such a privilege to share progress and milestones with each child, hopefully making a difference in their lives.
