Our People

The educators at Tadpoles Narangba are the backbone of our entire operation and we pride ourselves on our commitment to ensuring the children are well educated and that they feel a real sense of belonging whilst in our care. That is why we place particular emphasis on our own professional development. Our Operations Team consists of four highly qualified early educators, and each of them holds either a Bachelor of Teaching Degree or Advanced Diploma Qualifications in Early Education and, combined, have over 50 years experience in Early Childhood Education.

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? There were several educators throughout my life that inspired me to learn. They demonstrated excitement, passion and caring natures, and as a result, I felt compelled to emulate those characteristics and qualities in my own career.
Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? I believe our centre is an excellent choice as we listen to the families and work together to help settle their children in with the best possible care. We go above and beyond our duties here at Tadpoles to help make the families feel at ease when leaving their precious children with us. Mornings can be difficult for some families, though the educators here at Tadpoles ensure them that their child will be ok and contacts the families to put their minds at ease this is also done with story park photos. We also provide a fun child interest based program where we can have serious fun.
