A nuturing, caring environment for your children.
It is with a great sense of pride that I can say that I have been an educator at Flamingo for over 22 years. Throughout this time I have been privileged to see whole families come through our centre. I have a Diploma of Teaching in Early Childhood and a Bachelor of Educational Studies. I have worked in both four year old and three year old programmes in a teaching career that began in 1986. I enjoy being part of a small team who deliver a caring programme which caters to the needs of all children. Developing an environment where the children feel free to attempt new challenges and feel comfortable to fail as well as succeed is something I try to achieve in our programme. I have an interest in children’s literature and love reading stories. In my spare time I enjoy anything to do with craft and love making things to use at kindergarten. I live locally with my family and have been in the area for over 30 years.
HI I’m Wendy the assistant educator at Flamingo. I have two sons and have lived in the Wantirna area for over 20 years. My younger son attended Flamingo with Leanne. I have a Certificate of Education, Certificate 111 in Children’s Services and a Diploma in Children’s services. I have worked with young children for approximately 12 years and have been at Flamingo for just over 7 years. I’m very passionate about children learning through play and enjoy watching the children grow and develop their skills throughout the year. I support and encourage independence and find it rewarding when I can see the children’s pride in their accomplishments.
