Parkview Children’s Centre is all about the children so we depend on a dedicated, involved and experienced team of childcare Educators for each child to reach their full potential. Our Educators are not only supported in their work through opportunities for professional development, but also through meetings that allow time for planning and collaboration.
At least two full time teaching staff in each classroom are Registered Early Childhood Educators. Other staff members have a combination of education and experience in a related field. This is done through workshops, seminars and conferences, and through moments of study, observation and documentation of the educational activities of the children.
