Our comprehensive programs are structured & planned according to the Australian Government’s approved framework – The Early Years Learning Framework .

Staff will support & reinforce an environment where everyone is treated equally. Multi-cultural perspective is highly valued in this pre-school. A bilingual educational program (Chinese class) & a dancing class are running in this centre.

Director :Liz

Liz

My name is Liz and I am honored to be taking on the role of director at Creative Learning Preschool and Childcare Centre.

For the past 5 years I have been working as a room leader in a preschool room at a large childcare centre based on the Northern Beaches, whilst completing my Bachelor of Education (birth- 12 years) at Macquarie University. Prior to this, I spent 3 years working as an Educational Programs Coordinator children’s charity, Camp Quality.

I am an extremely passionate and enthusiastic educator and leader, dedicated to providing the children within my care with high quality educational and care programs. It is also my view that children learn best when they are in an environment where they feel safe, secure and included, where play is valued and recognised as genuine way of constructing meaning.

My name is Slavena Dimistova. I will be working in Creative Learning Pre-school since 2nd May, 2016.I have Certificate III in Children’s Service, and I am in the last year of completing Bachelor of Art at Macquarie University. I have been working in Early Childhood industry since 2009 and I love working with children.

What I have learned is that children exist in a reality different to the adults’ one. They have their understanding of the world and construct meanings in their life through their unique approaches. As an educator, I feel privileged to see how children develop their skills on their own pace and I can join in this process by providing supports. I keep it in mind that children’s childhood is only an ephemeral moment, so enjoy every  minute of it!
I cherish the opportunity of working in Creative Learning and I look forward to seeing you.
