I am Teagen the Co-Manager of Burpengary LEAD Childcare. With 16 years’ experience, I hold a Diploma of Children’s Services and most recently obtained a Diploma of Leadership and Management. I take pride in ensuring Early Childhood Educators build the foundation of early learning whilst putting the needs and rights of a child first.
My role at the service is to ensure that we attract and set a benchmark for like minded Educators and Teachers to be committed, motivated to achieve the highest quality outcomes for children and their families. I value mentoring and guiding teaching practices and curriculum decisions that are going to create inquiry, wonder and spark a sense of curiosity for the children.
We have large indoor and outdoor natural play spaces to encourage rich learning opportunities, social play, friendships, physical active play. Our practice is influenced and guided by the National Quality Standards, Early Years Learning Framework, Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and My Time Our Place.
"I love LEAD Childcare at Burpengary. My son has been with them from toddler to kindergarten. Not only is he better prepared for Prep than most children his age, he is excited about learning and I credit LEAD for inspiring that."
